We have a clients office who currently has their controllers licensing set as the following:
They currently have 7 AP's. I want to verify there is no drop in connectivity. Once the evaluation period is over in 12 weeks will the other license kick in? Since its only for 5 AP's what will happen to the other two??
Solved! Go to Solution.
One more thing worth mentioning is that should your eval license expire it won't kick your AP's immediately off the WLC. When the WLC reloads and comes back online, that's when the AP's will stop associating. So not ideal if you are in a scenario where there is a power failure and your eval license has expired.
To prevent disruptions in operation, the controller does not switch licenses when an evaluation license expires. You must reboot the controller in order to return to a permanent license. Following a reboot, the controller defaults to the same feature set level as the expired evaluation license. If no permanent license at the same feature set level is installed, the controller uses a permanent license at another level or an unexpired evaluation license.
Thus, WLC gets 5 base-AP-count license as active and supports only 5 APs.
Hope this answers your question.
