Licenses

Advanced features (such as dynamic routing protocols) require a feature license.

Each feature license is tied to the serial number of the FortiSwitch unit. Therefore, a feature license is valid on one system.

This section covers the following topics:

Adding a license

NOTE: Adding license keys causes the system to log you out.

Using the GUI:
  1. Go to System > Config > Licenses.
  2. Select Add License.
  3. Enter your license key.
  4. Select Add.
Using the CLI:

execute license add <key>

Removing a license

Using the GUI:
  1. Go to System > Config > Licenses.
  2. Select Delete for the license to remove
  3. Select Delete to acknowledge the warning.

NOTE: Deleting license keys causes the system to log you out before rebooting. You will lose all configurations related to the license.

Using the CLI:

execute license type <type> clear
