    Can someone please elaborate on the need for that license,

    hence the fact that the cli commands is sticking. (without)

    The only reference in the manual  is this:

    Yes, stating Honor, is that it ??

    But maby not for long:

    Please note that HPE Aruba Networking will remove support for Honor mode in a
    future release and advanced features will only be operational if the applicable
    subscription fees are paid and a valid feature pack is installed.

    (included extended manual)

    please elaborate on "strict" mode, can only find:

    config)# feature-pack mode


      cloud-managed   Obtain subscription information from a cloud-based server
      file-based              Obtain subscription information from a local file (default)
      honor                     A valid subscription exists, but cannot be installed

    you don't see strict written rather you will see it as inactive and blocked + state as " no feature pack installed"

    as to my understanding a have added the "not available", in 10.10.0002 column

    and added the AOS MacSec features available in other Aruba switches license free.

    I have now successfully connect an AOS and AOS-CX switches and port with MacSec over

    an ISP MPLS network. (port 1/1/1). 

    With a 10, Gb Jumbo framed traffic flow. Also tested locally with direct fiber connection.(1/1/2)

    This assure a secure/encrypted, tamper free, confidential traffic connection.

    And fast: :)


    I have completed as far as my understanding the Feature pack requirement table based on this. (CX 10.10 not tested)

    And the running code and status for everybody to enjoy

    But I really hope Aruba finalize the document.

    Perfect, by utilizing one or more of these four options; an Advanced feature pack is required.
    This complete the requirement charts:
