AIR-CT5508-HA-K9 Licensing

Hi community!

We purchased a "AIR-CT5508-HA-K9" to be a HA backup to our current production controller. Needed some assistance with the licensing required. Documentation for AP SSO says that you don't need any further licensing for the HA box when purchased as air-ct5508-ha-k9.

My concern is in other HA posts talking about this solution users that issue a "show license" get something along the lines of "cannot perform this action as it is an HA server"

When I show license on our HA controller it give us:

(Cisco Controller) >show license sum

License Store: Primary License Storage

StoreIndex:  0  Feature: base                              Version: 1.0

        License Type: Permanent

        License State: Active, Not in Use

        License Count: Non-Counted

        License Priority: Medium

License Store: Evaluation License Storage

StoreIndex:  0  Feature: base-ap-count                     Version: 1.0

        License Type: Evaluation

        License State: Active, Not in Use, EULA not accepted

            Evaluation total period:  8 weeks  4 days

            Evaluation period left:  8 weeks  4 days

        License Count: 500 / 0 (Active/In-use)

        License Priority: None

Should there not be some sort of HA-SKU license listed? Or is this all we need?

Also in a "show inventory" the PID come back as just a regular AIR-CT5508-K9 (no HA mentioned) - This may be the way it works but just wanted confirmation.

Any tips/info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Yeah.. I too had various opinions on what you should see, but eventually was told that as long as its an HA sku, it doesn't matter.  What you see might vary from AP SSO to N+1 setup and if you enable the eval or not.

Just got off the phone with TAC.

If you purchase a "AIR-CT5508-HA-K9" the above license should be sufficient.

What you should look for to confirm your HA-only box is ready (HA SKU should be listed):

(Cisco Controller) >show redundancy summary

Unit = Secondary - HA SKU
