Hi Matthew,

this is listed in the Q&A:

*Q. *What are the license requirements for a Cisco Catalyst 3650 switch
*A. *In a Cisco Catalyst 3650 stack, all switches should be at the same
image-based license (IP Services/IP Base/LAN Base) level. The active switch
license level is considered as the reference, and the member switch
licenses are compared against it. If there is a mismatch, the active switch
with the syslog message “license mismatch error” indicates that the
stacking was unsuccessful.
*Q. *How is a “license mismatch error” fixed in a Cisco Catalyst 3650 stack?
*A. *The license level of the mismatched stack member switch can be changed
with the license right-to-use activate <license> all acceptEULA CLI command
(entire stack should have the same wired license level) and reloaded from
the active switch console. This will enable the member switch to join the
stack successfully. The customer has to purchase a license before moving to
a specific license level.
