Controller Based WLANs

Which serial number should I use for generating licenses for different types of controllers?What is the difference between the SC serial number and the system serial

Question:  Which serial number should I use for generating licenses for different types of controllers?What is the difference between the SC serial number and the system serial

 

 

Product and Software: This article applies to all Aruba controllers and ArubaOS versions.

When you activate the licenses for all chassis-based controllers, use the SC serial number and NOT the system serial number.
The Aruba M3 Controller Module, Aruba Supervisor Card II (SC2), and Aruba Supervisor Card I (SC1) are all chassis-based controller platforms. The SC serial number from the 'show inventory' command must be used to activate their licenses.

For all the other controllers, Aruba 200, Aruba 800, Aruba 2400, Aruba 3000 series, and Aruba 600 series, use the system serial# for activating the licenses and NOT the SC Serial#.
If you use the SC serial# instead of the System Serial#, a "Failed to decrypt key" error is displayed. In this example, an evaluation certificate for a 3200 has been activated using SC serial number and not the system serial number:
#license add n8k+gd8T-F81cRzuf-WgIfRCyZ-edzjWq8u-7L5QfdTv-drM
Failed to decrypt key

For all license generation and activation using ArubaOS 5.0 and later, the LMS issues a warning message if you use the SC serial for a non-chassis based controller. The error message states that the system does not exist. In this case, since the controller is a 620 (non-chassis based), you must use the system serial number and not the SC serial number.
