Syntax Description

detail Specifies showing detailed license information. ExtremeSwitching Universal switches only.



Usage Guidelines

The command displays information on the software license level and feature packs enabled on the switch or nodes on a stack, including the trial license or factory default license and days left to expiry.

To see the license information on a SummitStack node, run the command while logged into that node.



See the specific chapter of the Switch Engine 32.3 User Guide that discusses each feature to determine if a license is required for some functionality. If not noted, all functionality is available, and license is not required.

For ExtremeSwitching Universal switches, the DEF-EVAL-PRMR is a 30-day evaluation license that is enabled on the switch from the factory, or after changing the network operating to Switch Engine from Fabric Engine, or after a rescue boot.


The following command displays the license level configuration:

show licenses

On a SummitStack, the output from this command looks similar to the following:

Slot-3 Stack.12 > show licenses
Enabled License Level:
Advanced Edge
Enabled Feature Packs:
Effective License Level:Edge

The show output also includes the current status of the non-Extreme optical device license:

# show license 
Enabled License Level:       
        Advanced Core
Enabled Feature Packs:        
        MPLS ServiceProviderEdge  3rdPartyOptics

To see all license levels on a stack:
