RAP/AP license question

Hello all!

 

As we grow our ap/rap count I was looking at the license page on the controller and see that my current limits for aps is 24 and raps is 24 - when I scroll down to the usage, I see total ap licenses at 24, remote-nod ap licenses used at 0 and ap licenses used at 17 - So just wondering how to get the RAPs to actually use a remote node license or if it never really does. (Just getting close to maxing out the 24 licenses with the 5 new RAP 5s I need to deply, and the 3 new RAP 2s.

 

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

 

(if it helps - they remote ap box is checked on them in the ap configuration/provioning page, and the flags on all of them are Rc2) So am I just missing something or is that the way it really is?

Lirria, 

 

As it is seen from the output, we do see that there are 5 Remote AP licenses used and 11 Campus AP licenses used. 

Licenses used for Remote AP's           : 5

Licenses used for Campus AP's           : 11


You should be able to add 8 APs to the network without requiring additional licenses. 

Unused AP Licenses                      : 8



Also, could you please post the ArubaOS version that you are running on the 3400 controller. 

 

Thanks,

Re: RAP/AP license question

We are running ArubaOS 6.1.2.6

 

So here's my confusion - when looking at the web interface - It shows 24 licenses for ap and 24 for rap - I'm guessing that isn't what it means

Service Status and Current Limits
Access Points24
Remote Access Points24

Total AP Licenses24
Remote-Node AP Licenses Used0

802.11n-124abg Licenses Used0
Total 802.11n-125abg Licenses0
802.11n-125abg Licenses Used

0

 

So I'm guessing we only get to add 24 aps of either Remote or campus before needing to purchase more licenses, right?

Re: RAP/AP license question

Lirria,

 

That is correct. You can have up to 24 APs connected, whether they be RAPs, APs or any mix is up to you.

Re: RAP/AP license question

Thank you - the way the interface presents that is well rather confusing - thank you for the clarification.
