Good day -

We have a NI-CER-2048CX-RT-AC with IP_ROUTE_SCALE and NI-CER-2048-ADV licenses on it.  We are trying to enable the ADV license so we can increase the max IP-Routes.   Any commands that need to be run specifically?   Thanks --

The NI-CER-2048CX-RT-AC  comes factory installed with the IP_ROUTE_SCALE, so it looks fine. From my point of view, you only need to raise the system-max(es) and should be good.

Does the license show up like this? Then you are ready to go.

show license
Index   Package Name              Lid          Slot    License Type    Status     License Period
1       IP_ROUTE_SCALE            $x  M       normal          active     unlimited

 

Else you need to copy it via TFTP

copy tftp license $TFTPSERVER $FILE

 

System-max:

system-max ip-cache 1200000
system-max ip-route 1200000
system-max ipv6-cache 120000
system-max ipv6-route 120000

Thanks for the quick reply -

 

here is how it shows up:

 

NetIron CER 2048CX#show license
Index   Package Name              Lid          Slot    License Type    Status     License Period
1       NI-CER-2048-ADV            ###   M       normal          active     unlimited
2       IP_ROUTE_SCALE           ###   M       normal          active     unlimited

 

Does that help?

Thanks a lot Joerg.   The guy who used to handle our Brocade configs is no longer here - is there a command/prompt needed to raise the system max?   Appreciate the help!

enable
conf t
system-max ip-cache 1200000
system-max ip-route 1200000
system-max ipv6-cache 120000
system-max ipv6-route 120000
wr mem

and then if you are ready, reload the router with reload

Hoping the techs are missing something as they just sent this:

 

system-max ip-cache 1200000
Error - Parameter ip-cache should be between 4096 and 524288

system-max ip-route 1200000
Error - Parameter ip-route should be between 4096 and 524288

Do you have support on that box? Because it seems you need to change the chassis type, that is stored inside the EEPROM to solve this issue and make the license being fully accepted.

Unfortunately there is no support on the unit..  Sounds like we may be out of luck on this?     Thanks for all of your help Joerg - it is greatly appreciated...
