Cisco CSR 1000V “license boot level” broken

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017

So you’re trying to install a Cisco Cloud Services Router 1000V. You try to install the Evaluation license that you got from Cisco.

router# conf t
router(config)# license boot level ax

You can only install an eval license on a BYOL version. You’re probably trying to install it on a “License Included” version.

There’s lots of different things that can cause this error. The one that I was hitting was rather unintuitive.
