  • Juniper Agile Licensing (QFX5110-48S, QFX5110-32Q, QFX5120-32C, QFX5120-48T, and QFX5210-64C)—Starting in Junos OS Release Evolved 21.2R1, the QFX 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 software features.

    Juniper Agile Licensing supports soft enforcement of software feature licenses. With soft enforcement, if you configure a feature without a license, Junos OS displays a warning when you commit the configuration except for PTP feature. However, the feature is operational. In addition, Junos os generated periodic alarms indicating that you need the license to use the feature. You can see the list of alarms at System Log Explorer.

    Table 1 describes the licensing support with use case examples for QFX5110-48S, QFX5110-32Q, QFX5120-32C, QFX5120-48T, and QFX5210-64C.
