Connecting a 2nd Mobility Controller

Hello,

 

I currently have an old Aruba 2400 mobility controller running version 5.0.3.1.  I would like to add a 2nd 2400 controller simply so that I can save money and add more access points.  I would like to use the configuration in my original 2400 and somehow have it be the master.  Can someone point me to documentation on how to do this? 

 

Thanks!

Re: Connecting a 2nd Mobility Controller

 

If the current controller is a local do the following to make it a master  :

 

(controller) (config) #no masterip

 

And then it is going to ask you to reboot the controller (save the config)

 

After that add the new 2400 as a local on the current 2400 (master) do the following :

 

(controller) (config) #localip 10.10.10.2 ipsec "KEY"

 

And finally on the new 2400 (local) add the current 2400 (master)

 

(controller) (config) #masterip 10.10.10.1 ipsec "KEY"

 

Both have to be the same key

 

Thank you

Re: ARe: Connecting a 2nd Mobility Controller

So far so good... I have the 2nd controller connected and set to read from the master. 

 

I'm still however showing unlicensed access points above 48.  How do I fix this?

 

Thanks!

run  a show licenses ?

 

and check if you have enough AP licenses installed on your controller.

 

you can also do a show ap licenses

Re: ARe: Connecting a 2nd Mobility Controller

I'm showing 47 used 1 unused licenses on the master and 48 unused on the slave.

 

Thanks

What do you see if you run show ap license-usage ?

When you do show licenses , check if there's a flag indicating that you have to restart the controller .

 

flags: A - auto-generated; E - enabled; R - reboot required to activate

 

 

Thank you

The 1st controller does not show that a re-boot is needed either.
