What would limit # of AP's on a controller

Just upgraded an M3 to 6.1.3.2 - and it would not allow more than 100 active AP's.   I have licensing to support upto 512.

I did have cpsec enabled - but auto-provisioning was on as well (also didn't appear to help when I turned it off)

I reverted back to 5.0.4.3 - but same limit appeared.   Some cryptic elemnts in the logs and  I've grabbed some logs and opened a case with TAC - but wondering if I got something in the config that didn;t take effect unitl my reboot.   But I'm not aware of a config option that would limit # of active AP's below your license limit....   looks like the AP's are comming up OK on my N+1 controller - also upgraded to 6.1.3.2 today...

though some AP's appears to be having trouble with certificates

 

Anything to check as I wait for TAC?

Do you have all the licenses required?  If you have PEF-NG or RFP licenses, you will be limited to the smallest number of licenses.

 

If you do "show ap database" from the CLI, do you see more than 100 APs?  If so, do they have flags in the far right column?

I am using PEF licenses - but have 512 of those installed.
sho ap database - shows 380 devices - these ones that were up while cpsec enabled had the expected 2 flag
the others were down and had no flags
I did notice that I was seeing AP ip addresses in the user table - with no MAC - in the logon role with an auth of "TRANSPORT-VPN"   which I have not seen before

There are no aps on that server.  Is that the one you are having problems with?  What version of ArubaOS is this?

Re: What would limit # of AP's on a controller

Currently I have the AP's on their backup LMS -   I'm running 6.1.3.2 on this controller.

 

Am I running into issues with having cpsec enabled - but no whitelist syncing between my LMS and backup LMS?

I was thinking that auto-cert provisioning should handle things, although a bit slower than having the campus ap whitelist synced between the LMS and backup LMS that are setup as stand-alone masters - since the cert provisioning will force a reboot.

tschick,

 

If you are working with support, please continue to work with support and let us know how far you get.  This seems to be a bit more than a routine licensing issue.
