2 Obtain License(s)
The Mobility Management System requires that you install a valid
Managed Access Point capacity license before you can use full
management functions. You can incrementally add Managed
Access Point capacity licenses to increase the management
capacity of your Mobility Management System.
Two categories of licenses are available:
•
Evaluation License: License intended for temporary use, which
can be used for up to 30 days from date of issue. An evaluation
license is disabled upon reaching midnight of the expiration
date. An evaluation license may be renewed up to two times; at
the end of the 90-day period, a permanent license must be
applied to re-enable functionality on the Mobility Management
System. Evaluation license certificates are electronic only and
are emailed to you. These licenses cannot be deleted from the
system.
•
Permanent License: License that has no expiration date.
Permanent licenses are only obtained through the sales order
process. Permanent license certificates are printed documents
that are mailed to you; an email confirmation is also sent.
To obtain either a permanent or evaluation license, contact your
sales account manager or authorized reseller. They will process
your order for a permanent license certificate or email an evaluation
license certificate to you as desired.
Licenses are unique alphanumerical strings created for individual
Mobility Management Systems and are only valid for the
designated MM-100 Appliance or dedicated server. To obtain a
license:
1.
Obtain a valid Aruba license certificate.
2.
Determine the serial number or MAC address of the MM-100
Appliance, or the MAC address of the dedicated server.
3.
Visit the Aruba Software License Management website at
http://licensing.arubanetworks.com/. Log in and use the
license certificate ID and the serial number/MAC address to
activate a software license key.
NOTE:
If you are a first time user of the licensing site, use the
software license certificate ID to log in initially to request a
user account. If you already have a user account, log into
the site.
For information or support with licensing issues, contact your
Aruba sales representative or log onto the Aruba license support
website at http://www.arubanetworks.com/support/.
