To me it seems like your primary does have license of 25 and your HA doesn't.  Now if the HA unit is indeed an HA sku, then you don't need to have any license and all you have to do is enable secondary unit: config redundancy unit secondary.  If the HA unit is not an HA sku, then you need a minimum of 50 ap license.  The sku on the box for the HA should have this part number: air-ct5508-ha-k9.  This will only be found on the box and not on the unit itself.

Maintenance cause=

Maintenance cause= Incompatible Software license

Uhhhh ... That's because both units are running 500 AP license.   

 

I think you need to contact your authorized Cisco SE/AM because if you're going to "convert" one (of the two WLC) to HA SKU then you're going to LOOSE 450 APs in license.  

 

The HA unit must only have 50 AP license in order to be converted with an HA license.

To allow additional usage of

To allow additional usage of hardware, beyond the 10 year certificate date, Cisco is providing a software maintenance release with a feature to ignore the validity period of the certificates in the CAPWAP authentication process.

Maintenance releases with the feature to ignore the validity period of the certificates are being created for AireOS 7.0, 7.4 and 8.0.

Cisco has released the fix to Cisco.com in AireOS 7.0.252.0 and 7.4.140.0

Cisco will release to Cisco.com a rebuild of AireOS 8.0 (as version 8.0.120.0) before July 2015.

*Note: Cisco has a beta version of AirOS 8.0 MR2 that does contain the needed commands to work around this issue and can be used until the official AireOS 8.0 MR2 (8.0.120.0) is released on Cisco.com, see the following URL for details:
