Example of Manually Activating a License
To bring the concept from the general to the specific, the next few pages show an example of the installation of a Data license on a model 2901 router. The example begins by showing the current state of the licenses in a sample router, and then shows how to change the licenses.
Showing the Current License Status
The example begins with Router R1, with only the IP Base feature enabled. No other licenses have been enabled on this router. Example 21-2 shows the status of the available features, with the enabled IP Base highlighted and the three technology package licenses highlighted, as well: Security, Voice, and Data.
