Cumulus Linux License Key

Cumulus Linux 4.3 and earlier uses a generic license key to enable the front-panel ports on the Mellanox switch. You use the same license key for all your licensed Cumulus Linux switches.

To retrieve the license key:

  1. Log in to the NVIDIA Enterprise support portal.
  2. From the Downloads tab, click Switches and Gateways.
  3. Under Switch Software, click All downloads next to Cumulus Linux for Mellanox Switches.
  4. Click the More files button.
  5. Click on the download icon for the Generic Cumulus License to display the generic key.

To install the license key, see Install the License in the Quick Start Guide.
