The following thing happened to my virtual mobility controller:
I have a standalone mobility controller running on an Esxi in a vlan 30 virtual switch. I moved the controller to the vlan 40, and gave it an ip adress from that ip range, and changed the default gateway too. After doing some tests, I moved the controller back into the vlan 30, and changed the ip adress back to the vlan 30 range (actually the same ip as before). Then I tried connecting an AP to it (the same AP that was once provisioned by that controller) and the AP wouldn't broadcast its SSID-s. After checking the AP I discovered that the controller is unlicenced.
I still had 10 days on my eval licence. I tried to reupload the eval licence I got for the controller, when it gave me a passphrase mismatch. So by moving the controller to a different vlan, the passphrase somehow changed.
The question is, why did the controller loose its licences, and why did the passphrase change?
Its a demo controller, so applying for a new eval licence is no biggie, but in a production environment this would be a problem.
Could someone help?
Simular issue in that a valid trial license is no longer installed and cant reinstall it as the passpahse has changed.
The Passphrase is generated using UUID parameter which is supposed to be unique for each VM device. Each virtual machine is automatically assigned a universally unique identifier (UUID). Did the UUID change when you was swapping between VLAN's?
