WLC 5508-12 HA License Question

Hi,

I hope you guys could help me to answer this....

I am in the midst of designing a migration of existing Wlan. I have 2 units of 5508-12. I plan to convert one of the 5508-12 wlan controller to a standby controller for HA. As i understand, the controller needs to have 50 AP licenses. So i am going to purchase 2 x 25 AP adder license. My question is:

i) If I convert a normal 5508-12 Wlan controller to a standby controller by adding 2 x 25 AP adder licenses, what will happen to the adder licenses? As i understand, all the base licences will be hidden after convert, but what about the adder license?

ii)  Is the adder licenses still able to use on the primary controller (another 5508-12 as active) or I need to purchase additional licenses to use on the primary if the base license is not enough to cover all the APs (I have total 60 APs)?

Thanks a lot !!!

Warm Regards,

Fendi

WLC 5508-12 HA License Question

Hi Kashif,

  Thanks for your reply. I have gone through the docs. But one thing is not clear, can I convert the 5508 using AP adder license? Because i read that I need to have 50 base/permanent license.

Thanks & Regards,

Afendi

I believe the licenses on the HA WLC would go hidden.  if you ever broke HA, you would then have the 62 AP licenses avaiable on that WLC.
