Experts,

When I attempt to copy with the following commands I get the following error:

(destination path is identical)

yourname#cop usbflash0: fla
yourname#cop usbflash0: flash:
Source filename [usbflash0]? FCZ1716933D_20130513014106144.lic

You've got your USB flash mapped as the bootflash.

Try using usbflash1 as the source.  Or do a "dir usbflash1" and see if that's where it is.

Thanks again for responding.

I don't have usbflash1, see below:

yourname#dir ?
  /all             List all files
  /recursive       List files recursively
  all-filesystems  List files on all filesystems
  archive:         Directory or file name
  cns:             Directory or file name
  flash:           Directory or file name
  null:            Directory or file name
  nvram:           Directory or file name
  system:          Directory or file name
  tar:             Directory or file name
  tmpsys:          Directory or file name
  usbflash0:       Directory or file name
  xmodem:          Directory or file name
  ymodem:          Directory or file name
  |                Output modifiers
  <cr>

And when I try to force usbflash1 as the source I get the following error:

yourname#cop usbflash1:?
% Unrecognized command
yourname#cop usbflash1:

Ah... It would appear that you don't have any compact flash and the system is using the USB flash as it's bootflash.

You could remove the USB flash, put it in your computer, copy the license file onto it, then reinsert it back into the router.

It's ugly, but it would work.
