    Hi There,


    I've got an Aruba 3200 controller and it's licensed up to 16 APs, something i've only just noticed after purchasing another 10 APs. Currently I'm using 11 but looking to add another 10 APs.


    Do i need to replace the 16AP license with a 24 or 32AP license, or can i buy another 6AP license for them to combine and cover my needs? That may seem a bit of a daft question but i want to be sure.


    Also i don't understand what i need to buy out of "AP licenses" and "Remote AP Licenses" here's the information from my controller:

    Yes , you can buy an additional 6 AP licenses but also you will need 6 PEF licenses (Firewall) as well.


    Make sure you contact your local Sales team for additional info
