    Please contact your local Aruba Partner to generate some VMC trail licences for you. Or you can contact Aruba TAC support to help you.

    Note that for normal operations with the AP-515 you don't need a VMC. There is a virtual controller build-in to the APs for wireless.

    A (V)MC (and licenses) is only needed for controller-based operations, and the (V)MC+licenses are purchased separately. Did your friend purchase a VMC and licenses?
