How is a license loaded for SVF
When a license is loaded for SVF, you only need to load the license on the parent switch, not on the leaf switch. Perform the following operations: 1. Apply for a license and upload it to the parent switch. You only need to apply for a license for the parent switch, not for the leaf switch. If the parent switch is a standalone device, you can use its ESN to apply for a license. If the parent switch is a stack of two devices, you can apply for a common license with the ESNs of both devices, or apply for a license for each ESN. 2. Run the license active file-name command in the user view to activate the license file you uploaded. - If there are multiple license files, run the license active file-name command multiple times and specify different values for file-name. The system will then find the matching ESN 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 a license file has been loaded.

Functions available only after licenses are loaded to S series switch
S series fixed switches: In V200R007 and earlier versions, fixed switches, except S5720HI, do not support license files. All functions are available without the need of license. The S5720HI can increase the number of IPv4 FIB entries or connected APs by loading different licenses. In V200R007, the SVF function is provided by S5720HI after a license is loaded. Other basic functions do not need licenses. S series modular switches: The MPLS, NQA, IPv6, traffic distribution, and SVF features of the S7700&S9700&S12700 are controlled by licenses. Without the corresponding licenses loaded, the commands can be executed, but the functions do not take effect. After the corresponding licenses are loaded, X1E boards can support more FIB entries, PPPoE users, or APs. The MPLS, NQA, IPv6, traffic distribution, and service port cluster features of the S9300 are controlled by licenses. Without the corresponding licenses loaded, the commands can be executed, but the functions do not take effect. In addition, by using different licenses, X1E boards can extend FIB entries. Note: On an S9300, before a service port cluster is established, load licenses to both active/standby chassis.
