Redundant WLC-5508 Deployment Licensing

I am deploying a redundant WLC-5508.  We purchased 2, each with the base license of 50 AP's.  After the survey, we determined that we need an additional 9 access points.  Do we have to purchase 2 upgrade licenses?  If so, can we get them in increments of 5, similar to the 2500 series WLC's?

Yes.  You need to purchase TWO (2) licenses.

Here's the difficulty with your scenario:

For unknown reason, someone in Cisco has determine that, in your case, you have an appliance with 50 bases license and you need to add 9 WAPs.  Logic dictates that you could potentially get a 25-base license right?  Not in this case.  Your minimum license you can get is 100-base license.

Because of this, I would recommend that you raise a TAC Case and potentially get both of the WLC RMA-ed.  Tell TAC that you want to get a 25-base license ADDED to both units.  (Bringing the total to 75.)
