We have 2 W7220 (126.96.36.199) and just recently created an active-standby redundant system (I think). Aruba 1 has been in production for over a year we just got Aruba2.
Aruba 1 (10.99.135.1)

We have students on campus 24/7 so my window to test redundancy is not till Mid November but I would like to have some clarity before then.Thanks again.

The standby master cannot terminate APs or clients or give out licenses when there is an active master. What you are seeing is correct. When failover happens, the standby master should have the same info as the master. Did you type "show license server-redundancy" on the backup?

Output: "show license server-redundancy" on the aruba2 the backup
(aruba2.nmmi.edu) #show license server-redundancy
License Server redundancy configuration:
License VRRP Id 99 current state is BACKUP
License Peer's IP Address is 10.99.135.1
