ISE Failover Device Licensing

I am working on getting ISE licensing requirements put together for the upcoming budget. 

I am confused on licensing for a failover appliance. Do we need to get another set of licenses for the failover appliance, or will the licenses for the primary device cover the failover?

Hi,Prior to ISE Release 1.2,

Hi,

Prior to ISE Release 1.2, customers could only specify ISE licenses to be registered to a single ISE Administration Node (i.e., the Primary Administration Node). Now, ISE Release 1.2 delivers the capability to register ISE licenses to two Administration Nodes (i.e., Primary and Secondary Administration Nodes). The registration of an ISE license to the Primary Administration Node remains mandatory, but the option to register a Secondary Administrative Node is available.

The appliance models will not

The appliance models will not matter.  Be sure to have both appliances licensed, though.  Here is how to do that:
