Airwave License - Controller

    Hi All,

     

    I am just getting started with Airwave.  I have added all of our APs into the system and I see that it adds the Instant controller separately.  From a licensing standpoint, does each AP need to be licensed as well as the controller, even though the Instant controller is actually running on one of the APs?

    The virtual controller won’t consume an AirWave license just the APs



    Thank you

    Awesome, thanks for the info.  the interface is a bit deceiving as I'm trying to get a licensing total.  I'm in demo mode and the total devices at the top shows 50 devices in Up status, but some of those are controllers so that doesn't reflect the number of licenses I'll need to buy.

     

    Its a bit confusing because I have some licenses, but some other devices have been added using the demo license.  there isn't a good way to see the difference without manually counting everything.

     

    example: 50 devices total - 22 existing licenses = 28 licenses needed.  some of those are controllers, so 28 - 10 controllers = 18 licenses needed, I think.  it would be nice if there was a page that listed ALL devices based on a category, such as # of APs, # of switchs, # of controllers.

     

    I guess it would be nice if there were an inventory total based on category of device: # of APs, # of switches, # of controllers, etc

    so, how are stacked switches handled?  is it licensed as one unit or does each master and slave consume a license?

    It is one license per stack

    This feature was introduced in 8.2.2. I.e. the whole stack consumes only one license. Prior to that each physical device consumes a license i.e. each switch consumed one license.

    Do dual 7XXX controllers in HA consume a single Airwave license or one per controller?

    one license for each controller.

    Each controller added will be consuming one license.
