Product and Software: This article applies to ArubaOS 5.0 and later.
During an upgrade from ArubaOS 3.x to 5.0, licenses are converted like this:
1) The Aruba license database in ArubaOS 3.x is preserved within the Aruba controller for future use in case of software downgrade.
2) Licenses are migrated to their ArubaOS 5.0 counterparts automatically, without any administrator intervention and without requiring any additional cost.
3) Temporary licenses in ArubaOS 3.x are erased during the upgrade to ArubaOS 5.0.
4) A separate ArubaOS 5.0 licensing database is created, which contains the new license keys.
