POE license on aftermarket WS-5004 controller

[ Edited ]

I recently purchased a WS-5004 controller to add to my homelab so I can learn how Aruba controllers work. When I got the controller had some licenses on it, but no POE license. I would like to be able to run my AP's right off of the POE ports on the controller.

 

The license in the controller says disabled I was wondering how might I go about either buying a license or reinstalling the license that may have been on the unit at one point?

 

Thanks!

The WS-5004 does not have any licensed POE ports.  Either it is a POE module, or it is not.

 

EDIT:  To be clear, the only controllers with licensed POE were the 600 series controllers.  If you have a module that has POE, by default it should be on.  There were no licensed POE parts on the WS-5004.
