Cannot rconsole to BP



I am having trouble logging into the BP console on an ADX 1000. When I try rconsole 1 1 I get a 'Invalid BP index '1' error. Anyone know what I can do to fix this?


SSH@adx1.lab#rconsole 1 1
Error: Invalid BP index '1'
SSH@adx1.lab#rconsole 1 2
Error: Invalid BP index '2'

I noticed this problem as a result of trying to capture packets and view them on the BP.


SSH@adx1.lab#debug filter
SSH@adx1.lab(debug-filter)#view bp 1 1
Error: Invalid cpu '1'

Hi Patrick,

Looks like there is an issue with the license on your ADX. Can you give output of following commands

1. show license

2. show bp-status

3. show version

Hi Mohit,


Well spotted. it looks like the license I have only supports switch code, but I'm running router code. I don't have the PREM license feature installed. That might be causing the problem.
