To make it happened, you need to upgrade to latest software pack 8.2.
Yes, the new licensing will apply to both new and existing units already purchased... If they are running Software Pack 8.2.0 or newer.
I've upgraded mine, but it still reflects only 16 licenses. Is there something else to do to tell the system to update the quantity?
Index 1 Feature: uc-user
Period left: Life time
License Type: Permanent
License State: Active, In Use
License Count: 16/16/0 (Active/In-use/Violation)
License Priority: Medium
running Version 15.1(2)T4
Try these commands in the IOS exec commands
"show lic detail"
"show platform software lic"
They will show the right count

Re: UC 560 Getting License Increase (from 16 to 24 included)????
created by Michael Jewell
SBCS - UC500 - View the full discussion
If I am not mistaken, the UC-540 is also getting some rework done to the licensing as well right?
The UC540 box will start with 24 base licenses instead of 16, I believe and still top out at 32.with one 8U PAK upgrade.
and remember the license math with allowance for analog ports and CIPC..:
24 + 6 = 30 Max licenses capability.
If you add the license PAK my understanfing is you get 2 more extra freebies..???
32 + 8 = 40
As Steve has correctly pointed out, the max licenses for UC540 is 40 (including analog and CIPC) and for UC560 it's 138 (including analog ports and CIPC).
i have a small question , if i do not have any analog phone can i use this 4 license for ip phone , and does it apply the same for CIPC ,please clarify this important as it is confusing and i can not answer client most of the time
Absolutely. The licenses for the UC500 arent tied to a particular model of phone. As long as the analog ports arent set to use skinny those licenses will be freed up for other uses.
