WLC 5508 license in-use vs. capacity

Hi All,

we are currently migrating AP1231 and deploying AP1131 on a site with WLC 5508. We do have a 100 ap base license, which seems to be exceeded since new APs could not register anymore. We do only have one controller, migrated around 100 aps with IOS to LWAPP/CAPWAP. But some APs are dismissed from the site so that we should have enough ap licenses on the WLC.
How can we "remove" the dismissed aps from the controller? Or is there any other way to free up the ap count license?

(Cisco Controller) >show license capacity
Licensed Feature    Max Count         Current Count     Remaining Count
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
AP Count            100               66                34

-> 34 remaining? But:

(Cisco Controller) >show license in-use
StoreIndex:  0  Feature: base   Version: 1.0
License Type: Permanent
License State: Active, In Use
License Count: Non-Counted
License Priority: Medium
StoreIndex:  1  Feature: base-ap-count   Version: 1.0
License Type: Permanent
License State: Active, In Use
License Count: 100/100/0
License Priority: Medium

-> 100 of 100 in use?

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards
Mathias

Either you turn HREAP to some of your APs or take the excess APs off the network.

The unused aps are allready completly shutdown (via switchport set to shut). Thats also what the WLC reports via "show lic capacity" (34 of 100 remaining) but what it is not showing for the per ap base license counter which still sits as 100 of 100.

Also tested the H-REAP idea, didn't worked either. The license counter doesn't change.

Finally solved, completely other circumstances. Got some batches of IOS-based APs insteap of LWAPP.

As for the counters: 100/100 means a licence of 100 and 100 of them activated. This doesn't mean anything about the usage itself.

Indeed. The only possibilities are 100/100 or 100/0.

100/100 means, it's a 100 ap license and it's activated.

100/0 means that it's a 100 ap liecnse but it's not activated on the WLC.

I don't see a way of only activating half of the AP count of one license (100/50 for example). I don't think that this is possible.
