Cisco WLC License Add for APs

I am using Cisco WLC 5520

Currently I have licenses for 100 APs

I need to add another 50 AP license. Let me know how to do it ?

What is the procedure ?

Does it require WLC reboot for license upgrade ?

Thanks.

My understanding from the link is that I need to Add the count as shown in the attached GUI screenshot. Is my understanding right ?

There is no license file required -  Am i right ?

 

No requirement to reboot the WLC ?

As per Scott's post, you do not have to install any license file as it is 'right-to-use' (RTU) licensing (so add it as per your picture).

 

You still have to buy the licenses from Cisco as RTU is a trust model. It looks like you still have it in evaluation mode so make sure yo click on ap_count and accept the EULA.

- Yes I will be buying the license from Cisco. I have bought it.

But technically no relevant when I add the count . Is my understand right .?

- Regarding the above, I need to follow the step which you mentioned after I add the count. - Once I add the count will it be automatically added under ap_count(adder) - Is it right,

Hi,

 

But technically no relevant when I add the count . Is my understand right .?

Yes you are right. Technically you can just add the license the count in WLC  but dont forget to buy the license from cisco.

 

Regarding the above, I need to follow the step which you mentioned after I add the count. - Once I add the count will it be automatically added under ap_count(adder) - Is it right,
