Enable a controller license in AOS8.5

  • 1.  Enable a controller license in AOS8.5

    Posted Aug 06, 2019 12:15 PM

    I upgraded a 7005 controller from AOS 6.4 to AOS 8.5 standalone mode. I can't enable the licenses using the CLI command "license-pool-profile-root" even in the /mm directory. The command is not supported. It works with the GUI but I have lots of controllers and prefer CLI.  I would appreciate any advice on how to use CLI if possible or why it's not possible.

    From the (MM) [mynode]# prompt or if this is a standalone or MCM controller, you should be able to simply add the license by using the following command from the CLI prompt of the MM, standalone, or MCM master.


    # license add <paste license key here)


    You can then see the licenses using the following command

    (MM) [mynode]# show license


    I hope this helps,
