TitleWhat is the Advanced Routing license for the C5-Series?
Question
What is the product (part number) needed to enable advance routing on the C5 switch?
Environment
  • Securestack C5K C5G
  • C5L3-LIC
Answer
In the C-Series C5 Documentation tab on the Data Sheet is the C5L3-LIC that when added to the C5 enables the use of OSPF, PIM-SM, DVMRP and VRRP, and IPv6 routing licensing (OSPF).
One license is needed per switch unit, with CLI as shown below.

Any applied license will overwrite any previously applied license (for that unit#). Thus, there is no need to use the 'clear' option unless a license is being removed with no replacement.

If taking an entire stack from an unlicensed-to-licensed state or a licensed-to-unlicensed state, please note this:
In a stacked topology, a separately activated license is applicable to each unit# in the stack, and all such license configuration commands are applied immediately to the running configuration. Because the manager unit will disable all unlicensed ethernet ports once it becomes license-aware, it is important to install the license of the Manager unit last if uninterrupted functionality of all ethernet ports is desired, or uninstall the license of the Manager unit first for the same reason.
