Lack of licenses for APs

Hello i've recently upgraded my aruba controller to 5.0.2.1 to be able to use
AP93 and AP92. I have more AP licenses than i need, but there are APs that have the L flag.

Is it related to the limits of
Wireless Intrusion Protection Module 40
?

See my service status output:

Yes, it's the WIP license, the rule is:

AP == WIP == PEF

The smallest of these licenses is the limit, which is why they need to match. The system doesn't have a method to apply licenses to only certain APs, so you'll need to up the WIP license to match the AP license in your case.

Thanks I've deleted the WIP license and now it works.
Now my roof is on the PEF licenses.
I'll have to buy more of both.

Thanks alot

It looks like your AP and PEF are the same, so you'll actually need more of all three if you're going beyond the current 56 number, and remember for 6.0 that things like tarpit and spectrum analysis require the RFProtect (WIP) license. Your WIP licenses will get converted when you upgrade to RFProtect. Your current network:

Access Points 56
