Just want to understand better/confirm on the licensing for Cisco Catalyst 3850. I read that it is running on a RTU license, which means I only need to specify the license requirement during order (I.e, IP Base) and I'll get a paper license. Then, all I need to do is to activate IP Base for the 3850 via CLI. Is that right?
I have a requirement to deploy 2 units of 3850 in stack mode, thus for the image-based license, I'll need to order 2 paper license (IP Base) for it and activate it via CLI. Then, just setup both units under stack mode, correct? How about the AP Count license? Let's say I need to control 20 APs, please confirm which option below is feasible.
1) Purchase 20 AP Count license for SwitchA and activate via CLI. Upon joining the stack with SwitchB, total AP Count will be 20.
2) Purchase 10 AP Count license for SwitchA and SwitchB and activate via CLI. Upon joining the stack with SwitchB, total AP Count will be 20.
If I were to go with option 1, can I just move/activate the 20 AP Count license to SwitchB when SwitchA is faulty/down?
