Licensing

  • Juniper Agile Licensing (EX2300, EX2300-MP, EX2300-C, EX3400, EX4300, EX4300-MP, EX4400-24P, EX4400-24T, EX4400-48F, EX4400-48P, and EX4400-48T)—Starting in Junos OS Release 21.1R1, the listed EX Series switches support Juniper Agile Licensing.

    Juniper Agile Licensing provides simplified and centralized license administration and deployment. You can use Juniper Agile Licensing to install and manage licenses for hardware and software features.

    Juniper Agile Licensing supports soft enforcement and hard enforcement of hardware and software feature licenses.

    • With soft enforcement, if you configure a feature without a license, Junos OS displays a warning when you commit the configuration. However, the feature remains operational. In addition, Junos OS generates periodic alarms indicating that you need the license to use the feature. You can see the list of alarms at System Log Explorer.

    • With hard enforcement, if you configure a feature without a license, Junos OS displays a warning when you commit the configuration. The feature is not operational until the license is installed. In addition, Junos OS generates periodic alarms indicating that you need the license to use the feature. You can see the list of alarms at System Log Explorer.
