Re: Adding access point to WLC 2504

75 is the maximum count support by 2500 model controller.

 

Currently you have 7 no. of license in your controller. 

 

Issue the command show udi on the cli of WLC and share the Product ID of it.

 

May be this WLC procured with 5 AP license and later 2 more adder license where installed on it.

NAME: "Chassis"    , DESCR: "Cisco 2500 Series Wireless LAN Controller"

PID: AIR-CT2504-K9,  VID: V06,  SN: PSZ20101HQ5

 

 

I was hoping to be able to use the additional 5 licences or add one more to the existing 7 

Otherwise, what would be my options?

 

 

Re: Adding access point to WLC 2504

Seems at the initial stage controller was having the 5 AP license installed and then additional 2 license (So its showing 5 + 2 = 7)were installed on that. Currently the 7 license is in active.

 

If you want to add more than 7 APs, You have to purchase license and have to install in on the WLC.

As this product is EOS, I think you can't anymore buy licenses for it, but better check that with your Cisco Reseller.
You require an "Adder License" for the amount of additional APs you want.
Don't forget to reboot the WLC after adding a new license.
