centralized license master local question

I just want to confirm this

 

If i got one controller(controller A) which got 16 ap and policy enforment licenses and also 16 APS in one site

 

The client will be adding one more controller(Controller B) in a remote site, which he willl put as a local controlller of the controller A

He willl move 7 of those 16 APS to the remote site with the new controller

 

In this scenario is not necesary to buy Licenses to the other controller as ill be able to activate centralized licenses on the master controller and share the pool of that licesnses with the local controller?

 

The client will not buy more APS he will just move those APS to the remote SITE with the new local controller in which he will not buy any license... we want to activate the centrilized license so the licesnses on the master controller are shared to the NEW local controller.

 

I am right, and you can do that? as far i read it would work just fine

 

Cheers

Carlos

Yes, that's fine, as long as the controller A is not built-in ap licences.

 

Obviously (and i'm sure you already know) needs to be min 6.3.

Re: centralized license master local question

Yes i know that :)

 

Just double checking...

we are quoting this to a client right now and i just wanted to double check... as i never have used centralized license before.   This will be my first deployment using them.

 

Cheers

Re: centralized license master local question

To add to this...yes, the AP termination point is irrelevant in terms of licensing wieh 6.3 and centralized licensing available.  You also have a 30 day grace period should the master controller (licensing server) goes down

Re: centralized license master local question

When you asked the question about the AP license being built-in does this mean that controllers that were purchased with pre-installed licenses cannot participate in license pooling?

Re: centralized license master local question

No they can but for any APs on this local, the built in licenses are consumed before the pooled

Re: centralized license master local question

And will a master with pre-installed licenses pool them out to a local with no licenses?

Re: centralized license master local question

yes...the master will become the centralized licensing server and any available licenses will be available to all locals
