Starting with IOS 16.10, Cisco requires Smart Licensing registration for Cisco CUBE. Failure to register the device with a Smart Licensing token will result in the evaluation period expiring and CUBE rejecting all inbound and outbound calls traversing the system.
To register CUBE with your Smart Licensing account, create a token as you would any other system, then copy the token and login to CUBE to execute the following commands (ignore comment lines beginning with !–):
!-- bind http to a specific interface ip http client source-interface GigabitEthernet0/0/0 !-- add the smart license token license smart register id_token <token ID pasted>
To ensure CUBE and Smart licensing accurately calculate license usage in relation to entitlements, configure the CUBE license capacities.
!-- example to enable 50 session licenses voice service voip mode border-element license capacity 50
Verify the CUBE registration status with the following command:
