ACI License

The Application Centric Infrastructure platform does not use traditional licenses like you would see in the IOS or NXOS platforms. In ACI model, licenses are honor-based for the fabric and are bundled with the product when it’s purchased. So if you own the product and purchased it from a valid source, then you are entitled to configure and use it as you wish.
