Centralized Licensing

    The 6.3 User Guide states the following:

     

    "New licenses can be added to any controller managed by a centralized licensing system, although best practices recommends adding them to the primary licensing server, for easier management and tracking of licenses across a wide network. Licenses can only be deleted from the controller on which the license is installed."

     

    So, in a typical master-local setup with master/master-backup redundancy using VRRP and the master controller acting as the primary licensing server, is there any benefit ("easier management and tracking of licenses across a wide network") to first doing a license transfer of all transferable licenses from the locals to the primary master?

     

    Thanks

    I would say leave it as is.  They will all be part of the aggregate pool.  However, if any controllers are being upgraded or replaced, then I would transfer those...
