Smart Licensing and Smart Account Recommendation
• Create a new Smart Account (SA) or get access to current Smart Account
• Agree and establish a Smart Account structure, roles and standard naming convention
for the various virtual accounts
• Take a holistic view when creating the account structure (legal requirements, liabilities,
asset management, budget alignment, policy, overhead, tax, etc.)
• Recommend separation for production and lab virtual accounts for entitlement
• Socialize the structure, roles and purchase process to assign licenses to the proper
Smart Account and Virtual Account(s)
• Communicate with partner on organization SA structure and license assignment
for typical orders
• Consider assigning “Smart Account User” role to trusted partner to move
licenses to the correct SA and virtual account for orders that are not assigned
properly
• For orders without SA and virtual account assignment, the license(s) will go into
the “Default” virtual account. Keep monitoring this virtual account and track
licenses back to “Order Number” by using “Transaction History”

PCD Considerations and Planning
• Consider appropriate version and edition of hypervisor to run PCD
• Lab testing with or without NAT feature
• Allow network traffic to and from PCD
• SU/RU upgrade does not automate COP file installation. PCD 12.5 can batch COP files
installation and upgrade with Task Chaining
- ciscocm.version3-keys.cop.sgn
- ciscocm.refresh_upgrade_v1.3.cop.sgn
• Inspect PCD logs via activelog tomcat/logs/ucmap/log4j/ucmap*.log
