Hi Everyone,


Our question here is how to upload AP license, file .lic into AIR-CT5760 WLC?

The interface inside too much different with WLC 4400 and WLC 5500 series.

I have experienced before to add AP license for WLC 5508 series. And I thought the procedure is same.

I hope you guy can help me and if possible give me the procedures how to upload that file .lic.


Thank you very much for your help.

This should help you to get start with your 5760

These models (5760/3850/3650) all using "right-to-use license" & it is different to AireOS (5508.2504,etc)

So something like is required to activate AP count license on your 5760.

license right-to-use activate apcount <count> slot 1 acceptEULA

This post also may be useful (as it describe IOS upgrade, licence adding, etc) Do not worry about model 3850, those config same on 5760 as well.

Hi Rasika,


Thank you for your info. Very useful to me.

Below is done for our AIR-CT5760.

I got the result after do the 'command'.

Why the <COUNT> part is 0 even I already put 100 in the command.

Is it correct?

So what is next?

To adding the license .lic use command copy tftp:xxx.lic flash:   right?

Can I upload the file .lic into controller using GUI? If possible please guide me.


Sorry broken english. HiHiHiHi.....

What is the IOS-XE version on your 5760 ?

If you are running latest (3.6E) then you can activate it in using GUI (Administration -> Software Activation -> Licences) as well.

Pls provide "show version" & "show license right-to-use summary" output.
