According to ref guide, it's a value in Controller>General in the GUI or "config ap max-count count" CLI command, but neither option is present or supported.

Any ideas?

Upgrade the software release.

To configure the maximum number of access points supported by the Cisco Wireless LAN Controller (WLC), use the config ap max-count command.

config ap max-count <number>

The above command works with software release 7.5 or higher.

Hope that works.

Please upgrade the WLC software release to 7.5 or later.

You can order Cisco 5500 Series Controllers with support for 12, 25, 50, 100, 250 or 500 access points as the controller’s base capacity. You can add additional access point capacity through capacity adder licenses available at 25, 50, 100 and 250 access point capacities. You can add the capacity adder licenses to any base license in any combination to arrive at the maximum capacity of 500 access points. The base and adder licenses are supported through both rehosting and RMAs.

You can configure the maximum number APs that can be supported on a controller. The controller limits the number of APs that are supported based on the licensing information and the controller model. The maximum number of APs supported that is specified in the licensing information overrides the number that you configure if the configured value is greater than the licensed value. By default, this feature is disabled. You must reboot the controller if you change the configuration.

" The base and adder licenses are supported through both rehosting and RMAs."

This is only partially correct.  You can get your base and adder licenses rehosted in the case of RMA.  You can get your adder license rehosted if you are moving it to the same model of AireOS controller.

Example an AIR-CT5508-250 with a 250 adder.  You can move the 250 adder to another 5508, but you cannot move the base.  You can not move the 250 adder to a WiSM2/7510/8510.  You cannot move them to an IOS-XE controller.
