Stand alone controllers with HA and centralized licensing

Hello I have 2 controllers and i would like to put both in HA for redundancy, and also that i could do centrilized licensing 

 

In is important to note that in this scenario i got no mobility master and we are talking about 2 7010s

 

i got 3 questions

 

Can i configure those 2 7010s in HA?

Can i configure centrilized licensing so they can share license even if they both in stand alone ? just in like version 6?

When they are in HA in active and stand by are they syncronizing all the config? just like in version 6?

 

Thanks

Here are a couple of recent posts that may help you understand the configuration better.

Re: Stand alone controllers with HA and centralized licensing

Thank you for your reply wescott, im guessing that the configuration will replicate on the stand by controller right? just like in v6?

those links were really helpful, i saw that collin said that you are able to enable the centrilized license so you dont need to buy the licenses again for example if i got licenses for 20 aps  i dont need to buy 20 licenses again.

 

Thanks

Re: Stand alone controllers with HA and centralized licensing

Yes, you would have to do the standalone controller with a VRRP standby. Almost identical to a master-master in v6. And yes, you only need one set of 20 licenses.

Re: Stand alone controllers with HA and centralized licensing

hello Westcott

I have the fallowing scenario:

1 controller  with 128 License( on master mode)

1 controller  with 128 license( on master mode)

 

Both controller on stand alone  Active / passive with VRRP

 

If i activate the centrlized license  it will sum 256  even if its 128 in each controller?  or i need to install  the 256 license in one controller?

 

I ask this becuase im migrating a master master active stand by  and the license are installed like that.  Right now its working fine in  v6 but i was wondering if in v8 its like that too 

 

 

Second question

 

If i got 

1 7210 on master mode

1 7210 on master mode

 

both  on active / stand by 

 

If i want to migrate from 6.x to 8.x  can i use the migration tool even if im on master mode on 6.x and ill be on stand alone mode on 8.x?
