Q:

Does the Aruba controller support subscription based license?



A:

Prior to 6.5, Aruba controller will support only permanent license. Startinng from 6.5 code, controller supports permanent license and subscription based license.

Below given are the few condition and use-case,

  • we support subscription based license only for WebCC.
  • We also have Webcc eval license which valid for 30 days similar to other eval license like (AP,PEFNG etc).
  • Subscription timer period starts from the time license key is generated from the LMS site.
  • Reboot requires after installing the webcc license for first instance and reload doesn’t require for next instance onwards of webcc license install.
  • Webcc related config only populates after installing the license.
  • Every subscription license which customer buys will be valid only for a specific time period. Once that     time period expires, the license will be marked disabled.
  • No explicit mechanism of license renewal. To renew a license, customer need to buy another license to use Webcc feature.
  • To have uninterrupted services, customer are expected to renew license before the expiry.
  • Also 120 days, grace period will be given with each license to facilitate customer to have some time to renew the license.
