Dividing a purchased licence


I'm looking into purchasing some Aruba mobility controllers and access points.

Aruba's price list offers larger bundles of AP licences at a better price per AP.

If i had 8 controllers each managing 8 APs, would I be able to purchase a single 64AP licence bundle and apply one eighth of this bundle to each controller?


Re: Dividing a purchased licence

No, you cannot split licenses.   When you license a controller you match the Certificate ID sent from Aruba to the serial number of the controller; giving you an activation key (that is only valid on that controller).   You cannot split them up.  I suggest you talk to your local Aruba sales team or reseller about pricing.

In Aruba OS 6.3 pooling licensing is available and you can split licenses between controllers in master-local setup.
For details check 6.3 User guide.

the answer to your question is basically a no but unless you are having 8 controllers in a Master-local environment where you can utilise Central licensing:-
