Licensing

Starting in Junos OS Release 19.2R1, Juniper Agile Licensing introduces a new capability that significantly improves the ease of license management network wide. The Juniper Agile License Manager is a software application that runs on your network and provides an on-premise repository of licenses that are dynamically consumed by Juniper Networks devices and applications as required. Integration with Juniper's Entitlement Management System and Portal provides an intuitive extension of the existing user experience that enables you to manage all your licenses.

  • The Agile License Manager is a new option that provides more efficient management of licenses, but you can continue to use individual license keys for each device if required.

  • To use vMX or vBNG feature licenses in Junos OS Release 19.2R1 version, you need new license keys. Previous license keys will continue to be supported for previous Junos OS releases, but for the Junos OS 19.2R1 Release and later you need to carry out a one-time migration of existing licenses. Contact Customer Care to exchange previous licenses. Note that you can choose to use individual license keys for each device, or to deploy Agile License Manager for more efficient management of licenses.

  • For more information about Agile Licensing keys and capabilities, see Juniper Agile Licensing portal FAQ.

See Juniper Agile Licensing Guide for more details on how to obtain, install, and use the License Manager.

Upgrade Instructions

You cannot upgrade Junos OS for the vMX router from earlier releases using the request system software add command.

Remember to prepare for upgrades with new license keys and/or deploying Agile License Manager.
