ICX7xxx Licensing

For the ICX7xxx series, no actual licenses are required. Around the release of FastIron v8060, they enabled honor-based licensing. This means you can simply install and unlock a valid license yourself with the license install command. That's it! Congratulations Ruckus, you did it. Just be sure to be running the recent firmware from this guide first.

If you are using these switches in a commercial environment, or to otherwise turn a profit, you should really purchase a license entitlement from Ruckus - it's only fair!

Other ICX7xxx Models

If you have a 7-series switch not listed here and would like to license it, ensure you're at the enable CLI level. Then just type in license install perpetual 1 and hit tab a few times, it will show all the auto-complete options (license options). Just run the license install command above for every one of them, same as for the switches above. Then just write mem and reload
