Clearpass Cluster Licensing scheme

Hi,

 

We've got only one clearpass in our environment and the plan is to have a subscriber node and also install some policy manager nodes for remote branches.

The question is, how does the licensing work in Clearpass cluster and can we share the existing guest, Policy manager and enternprise licences among all nodes or we have to buy new licences per node?

All application licenses are shared throughout the cluster (Access, OnGuard, Onboard). Only platform licenses are required for the new nodes.

Correct. License summary shows licenses in use. Application shows how many are installed.

Hmm, 

 

so why i have 5000 in my summary and 100 in application?

Re: Clearpass Cluster Licensing scheme

5000 is a policy manager license which longer exists in 6.7+. You should upgrade before adding additional nodes.

Thans mate,

 

I assume you meant no longer exist.

so if upgrade to 6.7 I'll only have 100 licences in totall per application refering to my screen shot.

Promise it's my last question. :)

Yes, but you will have a new Access license that will have 5,000.
