Take advices from Leo and maldehne above. But I think you already got WCS so you can not decide now to replace it with NCS.

Installing the license on the WCS system is done from it's GUI, so it does not matter if hte WCS is installed on win2003 or on RHEL. (there are two flavors of WCS, one for windows and one for Linux. the license you have should work with both. the license is not a platform dependent).

If you are planning to use WCS, my recommendation is DON'T.

WCS is about to be replaced by the NCS

First of all WCS can be installed on windows 2003 server or Linux redhat.

The upgrade license can be used only if you have bse license with x aps and you want to add more

features like location tracking , you can buy a feature upgrade license like the one above with the same

number of x aps as your current base license.

once you have done that you can buy adder licenses for plus feature where you can increas the ap count on your WCS.

Thanks a lot for your comments; I already have the WCS-PLUS-UPG- 100 license, thus i don´t have the option to migrate to the NCS. The customer buy:

AIR-MSE-B5-C3-W25MSE 3355 Bundle: MSE 3355, 3K   CAS,25 WIPS,100AP WCS PLUS UPG
AIR-PWR-CORD-NAAIR Line Cord North America
SWMSE3355K9-70Cisco 3355 Series Mobility Services Engine SW Release 7.0
AIR-MSE-3355-K9ZMSE 3355 Bundle PID; EQUIVALENT TO AIR-MSE-3355-K9
AIR-CAS-3KC-K9Context Aware License For 3K Clients and Tags (RSSI based)
AIR-WIPS-AP-25Wireless IPS License, Supporting 25 Cisco Monitor Mode APs
WCS-PLUS-UPG-K9ZWCS PLUS BUNDLE PID; EQUIVALENT TO WCS-PLUS-UPG-K9
WCS-PLUS-UPG-100Cisco WCS PLUS Upgrade License for 100 APs, Windows/Linux

I think that the Mobility Service Engine 3355 has included the license WCS-PLUS-UPG-100 and i need to request a Windows 2003 server and then install the WCS software and connect this with the MSE (with the WCS-PLUS-UPG-100 license), is that correct?.

I need to have the Windows requirements like HD,memory, Processor, Service Pack, etc., Do you have this? i did not find the information.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Re: WCS-PLUS-UPG-100 license

thus i don´t have the option to migrate to the NCS.

For US$2,500 you can generate a WCS to NCS migration license.  One benefit of using NCS (aside from function) is licensing.  For example, if you want to do High-Availability of WCS you need to purchase TWO (2) licenses, right?

But with NCS, you just need ONE (1) license.

However, one of the biggest caveat is the flavour of NCS you want.

There are two:  Hardware or VMware.  If you want to run VMware, please take not that you require ESX or ESXi.  And nothing LESS.

Before I forget, one can get an evaluation 30-day (100 units only) license.

Thanks Leo, at this moment the client does not want to buy the migration license, I don’t know why, so I need to give them the Server Requirements to Install the WCS software in the Windows 2003 server (fisical server). Do you have the hardware/software requirements for the WCS in Windows 2003 server for 100 APs?

Here are the requirements of the WCS

Its better Migrate to NCS rather than using WCS as mentioned by Leo. WCS is out of support on Feb 2013.

Refer below link.

You can install WCS on Windows 2003 or Linux. To use WCS-PLUS-UPG-100 License you must have base license in WCS.
