Transitioning from Trial URL Filtering to Paid

L3 Networker

I am currently using a trial of the URL filtering license and have made the purchase for the full license.  Does anyone happen to know if it's a seamless transition from the expired trial to the full license with out any interruption?  To initially enable the service I had to reboot my firewalls one at a time, It doesn't make sense that I'd have to do that again, but wondered what the experience was in this transition.

Hello cmateam,

The transition should be pretty smooth and a reboot is not required.

1.) You can delete the expired license using :

> delete license key <key name for the the expired license>

2.) From the web interface, you can Fetch the license under Device > License tab.This should fetch the purchased licenses with new expiration key.

If you are using PAN-DB, you activate it using the following documents:

Hope that helps!

Hello Cmateam,

It should be in a seamless manner.

Please refer below mentioned DOC:

What Happens When Licenses Expire?

Is the Firewall Automatically Aware of License Renewals?

For valid license upgrade you dont have to reboot firewall, Devce > License > Retrieve key from Server, will pull new licenses on firewall.

Apply New auth code to Serial No.

Thanks - So I'm a little confused.  Is the BrightCloud only use for the trail license, and then when you actually buy its a PAN-DB license for content filtering? I don't see any options under the Trail license to select the Database Download location. This is what I see.
