Is the unit originally an Aruba unit that you somehow converted to Alcatel or is it actually an Alcatel unit? It's my understanding that they do not convert.

If you had the license before you first converted it, you should be able to paste that license in after you convert it back.  It typically does not erase the license, but there is no guarantee that it would not sometime in the future.   "Converting" is not supported by TAC, but you probably know that already.

Hi all, the controller is still original and is Alcatel OAW4306G with a license (called PoE port or something like that) it comes with built in 8 ap lic.

I want to convert it to Aruba and use Aruba licenses.

Rebrand should better be called convert. Sorry for that.

When I have done it in the distant past, the licenses were still there. There is nothing that says something has not been put in to stop converting a controller.

Is it as simple as loading the Aruba firmware? And if converting it loses licenses can it be loaded with Aruba licenses?

Thanks Colin,

 

Sorry for the late reply.

 

The 650 (Alcatel) is running with Aruba OS with the build in licenses.

 

It is even setup as master with a original Aruba 3200XM with central licenses.
