7220 Redundancy created but where is the license info on the standby?

We have 2 W7220 (6.4.2.12) 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)

master -redundancy
master-vrrp 99
peer-ip-address 10.99.135.2 ipsec **********
!
vrrp 130
priority 110
ip address 10.99.135.8
description "Preferred-Master"
vlan 99
tracking master-up-time 30 add 20
no shutdown
!
database synchronize period 30
 
Aruba 2 (10.99.135.2)
master-redundancy
master-vrrp 99
peer-ip-address 10.99.135.1 ipsec **********
!
vrrp 99
ip address 10.99.135.8
description "Standby-Master"
vlan 99
tracking master-up-time 30 add 20
no shutdown
!
database synchronize period 30
 
Under configuration --> system settings both 
 
Aruba 1 and Aruba 2 roles are showing Master and slave respectively and show a master IP address of 10.99.135.8 (the VRRP IP)
I have not tried to fail over the master because I don't think this is totally correct because.
 
Monitoring -->WLAN controllers
Aruba 1 sees both controllers and Aruba 2 only sees itself and under.
Configuration -->licenses
Aruba1 has all the licensing and Aruba2 has none.
 
Now under 
Configuration -->centralized licenses
Licensed redundacy is checked and 
Aruba 1 and Aruba 2 For VRRP ID 99 are showing Master and backup respectivley and have peer IP addresses of the other controllers.
 
How will Aruba 2 update licensing information if Aruba 1 goes downand Aruba 2 does not already have that information.  
 
Should Aruba 2 see Aruba 1 as a controller under 
Monitoring -->All WLAN controllers?
 
Why is there no traffic being populated in Aruba2?
 
I can go to Aruba 1 or the VR IP and see all traffic there.
 
 
Thanks in advance, I will gladly provide information if there are any questions.  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.

Re: 7220 Redundancy created but where is the license info on the standby?

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

Note: This config will be used only if this box is a master/backup license server
