ArubaCare License Support

I'm trying to figure out what the benefit is of having ArubaCare on licenses (AP, PEFNG and RFP).  For example:

 

  1. Will the licenses expire if I don't have license support
  2. Can I still transfer licenses on the LMS without license support
  3. Will I have access to software upgrades with ArubaCare on controller but no license support

I have heard many different things and would like a concrete answer.  Any input would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance!

1. If you have normal/perpetual licenses they will not expire. Only the trail ones do. You can use them without support as long as you don't upgrade*

 

2. As far as i know you can, not 100% certain.

 

3. Yes, that might be possible, but*

 

* Please look carefully at the EULA of Aruba Networks. It states that you must have valid support in order to upgrade and possibly use the software. So sometimes it is not an question if something is possible, but more if it is legal to do so.

 

Hope this helps
