Centralized Licensing

I have a question about the "Centralized Licensing".


I have 1 Master controller, which is license server, and two Local controllers as license clients with a license pool of 32 ap licenses.

The Master controller (license server) fails and then I add a new 8 ap license to the first Local controller.


What would happened with the new installed license?

Re: Centralized Licensing

If your licensing master fails, you have 30 days to replace it before the centralized licenses stop working. Any licenses installed on a physical controller will work in perpetuity on that controller if the centralized licensing master is inaccessible.

Re: Centralized Licensing

Hi Colin,


thanks for your  quick answer.


So the 8 ap license I have installed on the first local controller, after the license server failed, could only be used by this local controller?

The second local controller can not used this 8 ap license, he only uses the centralized licenses for 30 days, right?


If the license server is reachable again, would he add the 8 ap license to the centralized license pool?
