Resolution


The warning message The maximum number of devices that your current license supports has been reached is displayed when you try adding a ZoneDirector and there are no free/available licenses on the FM.

For example: If we have a Flex master(FM) with 100 license and ZoneDirectors(100 AP license) with Smart Redundancy enabled:

The FM need 101 license (which means he need additional license on the FM), because the redundant ZD consumes one more license. If we try to join the SR ZD with the FM, the error The maximum number of devices that your current license supports has been reached pops out.

In this case you need to purchase additional licenses on the FM, activate them and upload the same on the FM, by logging into FM UI and navigating to Administer -> License 

If the you try adding a standalone ZoneDirector (No SR enabled) with 100 AP license, the ZoneDirector should join the FM without any issues.
