Aps are not coming up on the Local controller when centralized licensing is enabled on the controller.

Aruba Employee

Environment Information : 

Main Master-Local with multiple Master-Local setup and there is no license installed on the Local controllers.


Main Master (Licensing server: 172.30.3.199)  ===> WAN  ====> Master - Local
            |                                                           |
Main Local                                                       |
                                                                       WAN  ====> Master - Local

                                                                        |
                                                                       WAN  ====> Master – Local
 

 

Aps terminating on the Local controller would need to consume a license from the Main Master to come up.
