The ICX 7150 uses Self-Authenticated Upgrade (SAU) licensing feature that allows you to upgrade or downgrade to a licensed feature set with a single command.
NOTE: The SAU license install command replaces other licensing commands for installing or deleting a licensed feature. More importantly, you no longer need to install a license file using TFTP or SCP, or delete a license using the license delete command.
