Setting up licensing on the ASAv Appliance

Since ASAv no longer supports the manual 'activation-key' type anymore we are required to license it via the smartcall feature.

In order to setup licensing we should firstly ensure that DNS has been setup:

conf t
dns domain-lookup outside enable

and then simply specify the DNS server:

dns name-server 8.8.8.8

We can now issue the following commands to setup smartcall:

conf t
call-home
profile License
destination address http https://tools.cisco.com/its/service/oddce/services/DDCEService

and specify the license type ('Standard' is currently the only type that is supported!):

license smart
feature tier standard
throughput level 100M

finally exit out of configuration mode to apply the changes.
