If I purcahse the "CSACS-5-LRG-LIC" license, how many AAA clients does this allow me to support on a pair of ACS appliances? My client may have more that 500 clients so they want to know how far it can scale.
Large Deployment LicenseAllows deployment to support more than 500 network devices (AAA clients that are counted by configured IP addresses). That is, the Large Deployment license enables the ACS deployment to support an unlimited number of network devices in the enterprise.
Now I know that the ACS appliance 1121 has been tested up to 35k devices so i would asssume that it can cope up to 35000 devices.
Above this number the performance has not been tested (so not recomended).
The 500 is based on IP addressed devices. But does this affect quantity of users being authenticated - I assume not but would be nice to get confirmation. I.e. 100 devices and 1000 users (authenticated via back-end AD/LDAP) would not require the large deployment license.
