How can I add the new AP license to HA 5508 WLC?

Hi,

 

My customer has two 5508 WLC in HA mode and these devices have 250 AP license. Customer bought 50 AP and 50 AP license. But I could not add the license to WLC! When I check the Management>Software Activation> tab there are only two options under the tab these are "Licenses" "License Usage". There is no "Command" option in there. Also I tried add on CLI but this error log appeared " !!!! Blocked: Changing License configurations on Secondary unit is blocked !!!! " 

I think this is possible when disable the HA but is there anybody know this how can I add the new 50 AP license to HA WLC without disable the HA?

 

Thanks,

Burhan

Hi,You dont need to disable

Hi,

You dont need to disable HA.

For controllers when you enable HA, the controllers  synchronize with the enabled license count of the primary controller and support  high availability for up to the license count enabled on the primary controller.

You just need to add license on primary and there is no need to add license on secondary.

Hi, Thank you for your reply.

Hi,

 

Thank you for your reply. 

Yes I know the controllers synchronize with the enabled license and the 250 AP license bundled with two device there is no problem.

I want to add new 50 AP license in addition 250 AP license. Because customer has 300 AP's.

As I said, When I check the Management>Software Activation> tab there are only two options under the tab these are "Licenses" "License Usage". There is no "Command" option in there.

Hi,I think you are on

Hi,

I think you are on secondary WLC.

 

Try to login to primary WLC and check this "Command " option.

Hello Sandeep.

Hello Sandeep.

I have to add new licenses to a HA pair. I was going to do the way you say, but, I found this link:

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/interfaces-modules/wireless-services-module-2-wism2/117729-configure-wlan-00.html

This document says that you need to disable HA. Are you sure that it is not necessary??

Thank you.
