Migrate AP licenses from an old controller to a new controller

Hi,

 

I would like to know if it's correct to use AP licenses, we bought and added on a WLC, on a new controller that will replace the old one.

I think I can do it as it's declarative on new WLC but is it correct from a Cisco point of view ?

 

Thanks,

For now I don't have the model of the old WLC but it's old .. And the new will probably be a 3504.

Nope sorry I got the model it's 2504 to 3504

I don't believe you can transfer licences between generations like that.

2504 is the same era as 5508/8510, whereas 3504 is the same age as 5520/8540.

You'd have to talk to your account manager, but I suspect you'll have to buy new licences for the new controller.

Normally it's not possible. Ask your Cisco AM if they maybe can offer you a Cisco One licensing, sometimes it's possible with that.

From as technical point of view you can do it. From a legal point however it breaches Cisco licensing unless you purchased the old APs with Cisco 1 licensing in which case they are transferrable.
