Does anyone know if phones imported for TAPS us a device license in CCM 5.x. This would be phones with dummy macs. So if I have a BAT phone and an auto registered phone are 2 license required and does one get returned after TAPS has been completed for that phone?
With CUCM 5.x each (Autoregistered) phone/device consumes a "license" (based on the MAC-address.
This is also true for a TAPS profile with a dummy MAC-address :-(
So yes, you'll need extra licenses if you want to use TAPS. You may want to use "small" batches of dummy-profiles to prevent the need for 200% of the number of "physical" phones/devices.
PS. Upto now I don't know for sure if this behaviour is changed with the CUCM 6.x.
