    I have an MX104 with the following license:

     

    herbertp@edge1.ld6> show system license

    License usage:

                                     Licenses     Licenses    Licenses    Expiry

      .

    .

      MX104-2x10Gig-port-0-1                0            1           0    permanent

     

    Licenses installed:

      License identifier: E407853128

      License version: 4

      Features:

        MX104-2x10Gig-port-0-1 - MX104 2X10Gig Builtin Port(xe-2/0/0 & xe-2/0/1) upgrade

          permanent

     

    I want to use xe-2/0/2 but I am unclear on which license I need, the only two I can see are:

    Product Number                             Product Description

    S-MX104-UPG-2x10GE                   Upgrade licence to activate 2 x 10Gbe fixed ports

    S-MX104-UPG-4x10GE                   Upgrade licence to activate 4 x 10Gbe fixed ports

     

    Can I just buy another S-MX104-UPG-2x10GE or do I need a S-MX104-UPG-4x10GE?

     

    I don't want to buy a license that doesn't work but don't want to overspend either.

     

    Thanks

    Hi Regalis,

    You can add another 2X10Gbe license i.e. S-MX104-UPG-2x10GE

    To verify license once installed, use the CLI commands:
    show system license
    show system license installed and
    show system license keys

    Example:
    show system license
    License usage:
    Licenses Licenses Licenses Expiry
    Feature name used installed needed
    scale-subscriber 0 10 0 permanent
    scale-l2tp 0 1000 0 permanent
    scale-mobile-ip 0 1000 0 permanent
    MX104-2x10Gig-port-0-1 0 1 0 permanent
    MX104-2x10Gig-port-2-3 0 1 0 permanent

    Licenses installed:
    License identifier: E408040024
    License version: 4
    Features:
    MX104-2x10Gig-port-0-1 - MX104 2X10Gig Builtin Port(xe-2/0/0 & xe-2/0/1) upgrade
    permanent
    MX104-2x10Gig-port-2-3 - MX104 2X10Gig Builtin Port(xe-2/0/2 & xe-2/0/3) upgrade
    Permanent


    Hope this helps.

    Hi Regalis,

     

    Here’s another older post I found, just to double confirm this for you:

    That is helpful, thank you.

     

    So if you were to install two S-MX104-UPG-2x10GE licenses , the first would automatically show as:

    MX104-2x10Gig-port-0-1 

    And the second would show as:

    MX104-2x10Gig-port-2-3

     

    Does that sound right?

    I raised a case with JTAC at the same time as this post and they came back with something different:

     

    Upgrade license to activate 2x10GE P2&3 MX104 S-MX104-ADD-2X10GE
    Upgrade license to activate 2X10GE P0&1 MX104 S-MX104-UPG-2X10GE
    Upgrade license to activate 4X10GE fixed ports on MX104 MX104 S-MX104-UPG-4X10GE

     

    So if you want to go from 2 to 4 ports it would appear you have to use the "ADD" license.

     

    Thanks

    Hi Regalis,

     

    So you added "S-MX104-ADD-2X10GE" right? I'm not seeing how this is "different" from our discussion.

     

    Glad you've resolved it though :).

    Hi, sorry for the delayed response. I have not been on here for a while.

     

    The distinction is between:
    S-MX104-UPG-2x10GE (which adds just port 0&1) and
    S-MX104-ADD-2X10GE (which adds just port 2&3 based on having S-MX104-UPG-2x10G)

     

    I may have misunderstood but I thought you were suggesting by a second S-MX104-UPG-2x10GE rather than a S-MX104-ADD-2X10GE.
