Just wanted to make a quick post about Smart Licensing for the ASAv. It seems every time I have to go through it, I look it up all over again.
Head over to your Smart Licensing Account (https://software.cisco.com/#SmartLicensing-Inventory) and Click “New-Token”. Fill out the form with the description and expiration date and Create Token. Once this is complete, you should get a dialog back with a long string.
You must change your hostname from the default of ‘ciscoasa’ or ‘asav’ in order for smart licensing to work.
On the ASAv, let’s enable DNS on the outside interface.
dns domain-lookup outside dns server-group DefaultDNS name-server 184.108.40.206
Alright. Let’s setup the throughput level for smart licensing. Input what level for the specific license you have.
license smart feature tier standard throughput level 100M
Okay. Let’s generate the license.
license smart register idtoken <insert token value from above>
You should be good to go.
