AP won't License

I am having a problem adding an AP to a 3600 controller running software.


I connected a new AP to the network and it shows up on the controller with a IL flags (Inactive and unlicensed)


There are 24 unused licenses on the controller. (See screenshots)


I've tried a couple different new AP's but they all show up the same way.


Control plane security is off.


I've rebooted the controller as well.... no luck.


Any ideas????




Re: AP won't License

Can't tell from your limited screen shot if you have other feature licenses on the same controller.

For instance, do you have PEF/PEFNG and/or WIP/RFP licenses as well ?


If you do, are they quantity = 128 or quantity = 152 ?

Re: AP won't License

A 3600 will only support 128 Campus APs.  Aruba allows more AP licenses because a 3600 can support up to 512 remote APs (RAPs).


If these are all in Campus AP (CAP) mode, you have hit the limit of the 3600.

Wow.... i should have known that. It must be a Friday.... time to go home I think.




Re: AP won't License

Friday is good :)

WIth the full snapshot of the licensing output it can been seen that you have all APs in campus mode.


Notice the 'number of remote APs available: 0' output...   zero is zero ;)
