Cisco Licensing is very strange and I spent over 4 hours reading about its obfuscated software licensing plan. My question is simple. Do I have to purchase 5 different licenses of Cisco DNA Premier (C9300-DNA-P-24-3) to connect 5 Switches (C9300-24P) to the DNA Center, Cisco ISE and Cisco Stealthwatch? Some of those switches will be connected in a ring.
As far I understand, the company already owns DNA Center and ISE. Do I additional licenses to connect them? How many licenses? 5 different licenses, one for each switch? Or none?
Any input would be grateful. The difference is substantial between $10k to $15k
