Centralized Licensing enabled

We have recently enabled centralised licensing as we installed a new controller. and I need some clarification on how this works with our existing controllers.


We have a master/local controller environment.  


When we installed the existing controllers, we installed AP licenses on each of the controllers. This would allow a specific number (e.g. 128) APs per controller. We installed a new controller and with the new licensing model, enabled centralised licensing on the master controller. We installed a 128 license on the master controller.


Are these new licenses available to all controllers or just the new controller? Or will all controllers make use of the centralised licensing?

The controllers will share applied PEF licenses when centralized licensing is enabled.
