    Hi Dave,

    Which version of the SRE-V software are you using?



    Thanks,

    Radhika

    I have the eval license for SRE-V which has recently expired. I have purchased a copy of
    L-FL-SRE-V-HOST= and registered with VMWare but when I follow instructions in Quick Start Guide it says to hit the Edit button from vSphere client | Config |  Licensed Features. Unfortunately the Edit button is greyed out and the license key is showing as XXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX with Never expiry.   From IOS the service-module session correctly shows the expired license as I would expect.  I havent found a way of updating it from IOS and the Quick Start Guide doesnt give much info. "View Support Information"  doesnt make sense from an IOS perspective.

    What am I missing here?

    Dave,



    When you upgrade to 1.5.1, please be sure to use the ¿argument keep-ds¿ option in order to ensure your datastore is not erased. 



    Also, as a best practice, please back up your VMs before doing the upgrade.



    For more information see http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/interfaces_modules/services_modules/sre_v/1.5/user/guide/software.html#wp1072923



    Best Regards,



    John

    Dave,

    The licensing procedure is different for 1.1.1 and 1.5.1. The procedure you are following to apply the vmware license is for 1.5.1 and later versions. Since you are planning to upgrade

    To 1.5.1 please do that before you apply the license.



    Thanks,

    Radhika

    sre-v-k9.smv.1.1.1 as far as I can tell. Is there a definitive way?
    (I am going to upgrade to 1.5.1 but thought I would do that after sorting the licensing)
