Load a license for a stack of CE series switches

Load a license for a stack of CE series switches as follows:
1. Apply for a license and upload the license file to the master switch of the stack system.
A license is bound to the ESN of a physical device, and each stack member has an independent ESN. You can apply for a license for two switches in a stack or for each switch.
2. Run the license active file-name command in the user view to activate the uploaded license file.
- If there are two license files, run the license active file-name command twice and specify two different file names. The system will then find the matching ESNs to activate the license files.
- If there is only one license file, run the license active file-name command only once.

3. Run the display license command to check whether the license file has been successfully loaded.

If you load the licenses on two switches and then set up a stack system, the features activated for the stack are a combination of features activated for the two member switches. If a license is uploaded to only one of the two switches, the license is valid for the stack system.

If the stack system splits, the licenses loaded to the switches respectively take effect. In addition, the activated licensed features can still be used on the switches even if these features are not activated using the switches' own license.
