Prime Infrastructure (NCS 1.1 and LMS 4.2) Installation and licensing

Hi Board,

I want to order a Cisco NCS 1.1 and LMS 4.2, which is combined in Cisco Prime Infrastructure bundle.

The problem is, that I'm a litte bit confused regarding ordering and licensing.

So for example:

I want to have an appliance model (no VMWare, No 3rd party servers and O/S)

400 APs

100 Switches and Routers

So from my understanding, I'll have to order two NCS appliances (PRIME-NCS-APL-K9), because NCS and LMS cannot run on the same HW. One appliance for NCS and one for LMS.

Then I need to order separate licenses for NCS and LMS. In fact, they use the same product number (R-PI-1.1-x-K9), but the device count licenses are not shared between the products, right?

This means: 1x R-PI-1.1-500-K9 (500 Devices for APs) for NCS and another 1x R-PI-1.1-100-K9 (100 Devices Switches/Routers ...) for LMS.

It's also planned to place NCS in High Availability Mode:

The question is, if I have to order the device count license per appliance or if the licenses are shared between the HA cluster.

I guess no licenses are needed on the second NCS, right?

In fact this is the same question as in

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards

A single license is necessary for a given HA cluster - please note the answer in this thread.
