Centralized licensing on a Master / local setup

I have a 7210 Master controller with 20 local APs and 40 local controllers with 1200 APs.

We are on 6.3 and soon to be going to 6.4.

Purchaced licenses to start using centralized licensing.

I have to activate over 700 ap licenses 1200 plus RF Proctect and PEFNG licenses.

Can these licenses be activated and installed on one controller?

We do not at this point have a redundant.

Activate and install them all on the master and then turn on centralized licensing.  OR you can install them on individual controllers, then turn on centralized licensing....  Either way.

Thank you for the quick reply...



Re: Centralized licensing on a Master / local setup

Consider your upgrade/replacement plans - if you'll be moving locals around, re-tasking or replacing them, it'll be easier later to manage the licenses all in one place. Then be sure to nominate one of the other controllers as the backup for licencing and you should be good.
