The procedure for loading a license on a stack system is as follows:
  1. Apply for a license and upload the license file to the master switch of the stack system.

    The 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 multiple switches in a stack or for each switch.

  2. In the user view, run the license active file-name command 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.

If you load the licenses on multiple devices and then set up a stack system, the features activated for the stack are a combination of features activated for these member devices. Even if a license is uploaded to only one of these devices, the license is effective for the stack system. If the stack system breaks up, the licenses loaded to the devices respectively take effect. In addition, the activated licensed features can still be used on the devices even if these features are not activated using the devices' own license.

If the license of Switch1 supports feature A and the license of Switch2 supports feature B, the two switches support features A and B after they set up a stack. If the stack splits, feature B on Switch1 can still run even after Switch1 restarts but new configurations cannot be added to feature B.
