New to Aruba networks and just got back from the bootcamp.
Have a quick question about something I though I remembered the instructor saying at the bootcamp that I have not been able to find in any user guide, release notes or through google.
Does controllers come with built in licenses for APs from the factory? Can one see these built-in licenses (if they exist) in the GUI or on the CLI? Is it correct that they are removed if one does write erase all? Is the amount and type of licenses included (if any indeed are included) detailed in some document somewhere?

Older controllers did have part numbers that had built-in AP licenses. The only way you would know is on the inventory page or by typing "show inventory" and the part number would be something like 3400-32. The licensing page would show the licenses, but would NOT differentiate. You would only know by looking at the part number.

show inventory on CLI
SC Model# : Aruba3200
Model according to https://licensing.arubanetworks.com
does this mean that there is or should be 8 AP licenses, but no WIP or PEFNG licenses, or are there no included licenses?

I know I'm reviving an old thread but in case anyone else searches and finds this like me, the only sure fire way I've found is to either do a "show slots"....
#show slots Slots ------ Slot Status Card Type ---- ------ --------- 1 Present A3400-32
...or if that doesn't please you do a show license and a show ap license-usage together to see if there are more AP licences available than installed.
#show license verbose License Table ------------- Key Installed Expires Flags Service Type --- --------- ------- ----- ------------ xxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxx-xxx 2015-01-01 Never E RF Protect: 32 12:39:24 xxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxx-xxx 2015-01-01 Never E Access Points: 32 12:39:42 xxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxx-xxx 2015-01-01 Never E Next Generation Policy Enforcement Firewall Module: 32 12:39:58 License Entries: 3 Flags: A - auto-generated; E - enabled; R - reboot required to activate #show ap license-usage Total AP Licenses : 64 Remote-Node AP Licenses Used : 0 AP Licenses Used : 19
as noted above, a show inventory doesn't actually do it, just returns the base model.

Just to clarify... the embedded license will not show up as an installed license (show license verbose). And the only way to verify that it is there is to see the difference in the limits, is this correct?

true, they do not show up as a normal license but false as you can verify them using the following command: "
show license client-table
This clearly states if there are built-in licenses or not:
#show license client-table
Built-in limit: 0
