Starting from 8.x all the Sharable License are installed on the Mobility Master(MM) and it acts as the License Server. The controller Specific License are installed on the respective Managed Device(MD).

From AOS: 8.x the feature MM remotely adding an MD’s box(Controller Specific) license to MD introduced when MD’s console access is blocked from configuration.

The licenses which are applied only to the controller on which it is installed. It is not sharable through the centralized licensing feature. One of the Controller Specific License is PEFV

PEFV:

The Policy Enforcement Firewall for VPN users( PEFV ) license allows a network administrator to apply firewall policies to clients using a VPN to connect to the controller.

The PEFV license is purchased as a single license that enables the functionality up to the full user capacity of the controller.
