Raouf,

Every user of the new MyNetworking portal can request 90-day evaluation licenses for ClearPass or ALE. To do so, go to MyNetworking then to My Licenses and select the option for free or evaluation licenses (the exact naming will depend on your language).

For other licenses, at least for the moment, you will need to ask your Aruba SE or Aruba Channel SE to get you a registration ID for an evaluation license.

I do understand that this feature is a step back for HPE Aruba partners that were familiar with the legacy Aruba licensing portal; however the benefits and efficiency of having all HPE Aruba software and licenses merged in one portal were also taken into account. There was no possibility to copy the partner eval request functionality at this moment. I cannot comment if that feature will return on a short term (or longer term).

Hi

 

I experience the same problem, this is kind of a huge setback.

I have tried several times to transfer licenses from an old 3400 to a new 7205, but the HPE licensing page comes up with an error.

 

At the same time i'm unable to create an eval license for the system, so i'm basically stuck.

Being a partner with Aruba/HPE, this is kind of frustrating as licenses on Aruba has been very easy and effective.

I have tried managing licenses for other vendors, and it could be a pain in the a**. I sincerely hope Aruba/HPE is not falling into the same trap.

Roar,

Please work with your local Aruba SE. The more feedback that comes in through that channel the more likely things will be changing more rapidly than already planned.

Hi, Herman,

 

Hope it will be fixed soon.

Need some for a POC

Re: Is is possible to generate an Aruba Eval License using the new HPE Portal

Thierry,

I don't want to spread false hope.. If you need eval licenses for controllers, you can contact Rene van Dorst or any of the other Aruba SEs. They can help you to get a registration ID; so while it is not as convenient as in the past, it should be doable (and is like many other vendors do evaluation licenses, without meaning that that is how it should be, it is not).

In addition, you can contact Aruba TAC as well to get you evaluation licenses, and you will NEED to contact TAC in the case you want to add an eval license on a controller that has already production licenses installed.

Please escalate through Rene any issues that you have, so they can be resolved. This forum is not monitored by the people that run the MyNetworking portal.

I believe this link takes you to the eval linceses. It request your company information first.

It doesn't look like there is the PEFNG license in the list does this come under a differnet name now or is it not available.

Re: Is is possible to generate an Aruba Eval License using the new HPE Portal

Please check under the following J-numbers for the three basic controller per-AP licenses:

 

JW472AAE Aruba Cntrlr Per AP Capacity Lic E-LTU
JW473AAE Aruba Cntrlr Per AP PEF Lic E-LTU
JW474AAE Aruba Cntrlr RFProtect 1 AP Lic E-LTU

 

So, yes, it looks like in the new system it is known as PEF, not PEF-NG. Pretty sure it is the same..
