Access Points Inactive and Unlicensed

Hi Guys!

 

I'm new to Aruba and am having some problems during my testing phase.

 

We have designed a wireless solution for small branch locations, with the MM and a MC cluster in a datacenter. 

 

We've setup the connectivity between a branch and the datacenter. The AP connects to the MC's through DHCP and is seen online in the MM. 

 

We can provision it but after the reload it shows up as inactive and unlicensed in the ap database. I've tried disabling control plane security but to no avail. 

 

(XXX-DC-MC02) #show ap database

 

AP Database

-----------

Name                  Group               AP Type  IP Address  Status    Flags  Switch IP     Standby IP

----                  -----               -------  ----------  ------    -----  ---------     ----------

XXX-AP-V1-02  AP-GRP-XXX  305      10.xx.xx.51   Up 6m:9s  2IL    10.xxx.xxx.232  0.0.0.0

 

 

 

I have installed the licenses on the MM. (see attached)

I have 127 AP and PEF licenses installed. the total amount is higher due to me not being able to delete the expired trial licenses. 

 

The AP keeps on rebootstrapping and rebooting every 8 minutes or so. 

 

Could you guys please point me in the right direction as I am very confused as to why the AP stays unlicensed. 

 

Many thanks,

 

I've attached some relevant logging from "ap debug system-status" and "show log all 100"

Re: Access Points Inactive and Unlicensed

Remove the RFP license if you have any more than 64 APs.  If not, the RFP license will not allow you to add anymore.

Re: Access Points Inactive and Unlicensed

Hi Joseph, 

 

These licenses are expired trial licenses, can these expired lic's interfere with active ones?

Re: Access Points Inactive and Unlicensed

Hi Joseph, 

 

I still had the RFP licenses enabled from when we were testing, I've disabled them and now the AP wil license correctly. 

 

Thank you for your help!

 

Kind Regards, 

 

Michael.
