Hi friend,


Try this,


To transfer licenses from a old controller to the replacement controller, follow these steps:


1) Log into


2) Select Transfer a personal certificate.




3) Click Transfer next to the license that needs to be transferred.

4) Enter the serial number of the replacement unit and click Transfer.

5) Use either CLI or WebUI to apply the new license key to the replacement controller.


Using CLI


(Aruba) #license add <license_key>

Note: This is not a configuration command and it needs to be executed in privileged mode.

Using WebUI

Navigate to Configuration > Network> Controller > Licenses.

Scroll to the bottom of the screen, copy and paste the license key into the Add New License Key field and click Add.


6) After the license has been added, the controller may require a reboot to activate the license. To determine if the controller needs a reboot, issue the 'show license' command and look for the R flag in the Flags column.


(Aruba) #show license
