Number of Licenses Required for EXOS Stack


Hi I have 2 switches x460-48t running on Core license and also in stack, i would like to add the 3rd switch to the stack, however this switch is running on advanced edge license. How do i proceed ? as the customer doesn't want to go for the license restriction and the core licenses are not anymore available .

Thanks Note: This conversation was created from a reply on: Number of Licenses Needed on Stack.

Hello!

You can configure switch with Adv Edge license as non-master-capable
Userlevel 5
The easiest way for this to be no problem is to just set the third switch as "not master capable" - Do this by adding the switch and once in run the command "configure stacking master-capability off" - reboot the slot and your good to go.

Thank you guys,

One more question :

will the "configure stacking node-address <> license-level <> " , still be applicable??

Or i just enable the license on the switch using "enable license {software} " ?

This is different commands.
"configure stacking node-address <> license-level <> " - it's for restrict licence-level for some node if desired license-level of stack is lower.

"enable license {software} " - it's for install license or FP

yes, i know....if the 3rd switch comes with advanced edge license and the current stack is on CORE license restriction and the idea is to make this 3rd switch NOT a master capable , how to i load the license on this 3rd new switch ?

You can install license as usual.

license-level restriction it's when you have stack nodes with for example Adv Edge license and you add new node with Core license.

"configure stacking [node-address node_address | slot slot_number] master-capability off" it's just for that node with lower license level don't become Master.

Hi,

How to specify which license is for which switch on EXOS Stack? For example, what should I do if I just want to upgrade only two master capable of same type stacked switches?
