I have a Cisco 5520 HA pair and want to increase the license count so that additional AP's can register.  I have an RTU license, please see the output below.  I want to know how I can increase AP count to without "breaking" (reaching the limit of)  the license count.

Hi

 Cisco licensing system is always a mess in my opinion. RTU is not different.

Yes, you can just add more license by edit the counter on the WLC and the question you may ask is, how can I pay for that and how does Cisco know I did?

 Of course, you must contact a Cisco partner, buy the right to use licensing and then adjust your wlc.

 

-If I helped you somehow, please, rate it as useful.-

Thank you for the response.

 

So can I increase the count to 150 without any issues?

yes you can .

 

from 130 to 150...

 

But later you need to buy addition 20 AP addere license from partnet.

Thank you Sandeep.

 

Which brings me back to Flavio's question.  How would Cisco know? If I change this back to 130 at a later date would that impact my license?

 

Thank you

Hi,

Even I was having the same question in mind. Last week spoke to cisco TAC engineer and he told me that it's only based on trust that we only use what we buy ;)

If you want to save yourself the headache of rebooting just set the controllers to full 1500 RTU. 

It's up to you at that point to keep track of how many licenses you are using. 

 

I just had TAC tell me to convert back to RTU after we tried using smart licensing on 4 controllers as 8.2.166 and 8.3.143 have a bug with the proxy which causes the controllers to not sync up with the server and default to evaluation mode..
