License disappears after upgrade to 5.1
« on: September 22, 2005, 08:38:58 am »
Hello,

I upgraded my SA-1000 appliance software from 5.0 to 5.1, and lost all installed licenses. Though Juniper said that they will be automatically converted to new format, I didnt see it. Only 2-user demo license was present. So I had to rollback.

So what shall I do to get box with both 5.1 and licenses?

Thanks,
Peter

You need to generate a new license, and the new license key is tied to the hardware unit serial number (just like NS firewall).

Contact the JTAC or your local distributor.

Upgrades from 4.2 to 5.x should automatically generate the licensing, I assume 5.0 will also do likewise. This is how I generated both production & lab licenses.

I doubt they will issue a license for the SA1000 - they will tell you to upgrade.

Also I suggest you wait until 5.1R3 if you can.

If you had a non permanent licence, i.e. a test licence that would expire, this is not converted to 5.1 code, i am told by Juniper. So if you have a "full time" licence and upgrade to 5.1 all should be ok.

Best regards,
M.

i think mirom is correct, mine is 2-week trial license, so converting from 5.0 to latest version and the trial key won't automatically been upgraded.

Thanks for the replies.  I have a one-year license. Is it what you call 'permanent'? Anywaty I think I'll contact Juniper's support.

One more question: what happens when the installed license expires? Do all the features stop functioning?

Regards,
Peter

Yes, it looks like it was a trial license and it is not converted when upgrading 5.0->5.1.
 
Thanks for replies!

NFR Version

for me it looks like that you own a NFR Box. 25Users on a 1005 Adv.. The lic. are gernerated for one year and will be extended by you Channel-Manager.

For the new plattform or OS it may be that you only get a "10User all Features" lic. for one year.
