QuestionWhat type of Licensing does my Controller use?
Customer EnvironmentAll Wireless Controllers
To determine the controllers licensing type, you must first find out what model of the controller you have. If you are unsure of the controller model, you can find it either on the controller label or by logging into the GUI.
On Physical controllers, you can determine the model by either looking at its label or by logging into the controller’s UI. And,
On Virtual controllers, you can determine the model by logging into the UI in a web browser and look at the model listed on the Dashboard
To find out how many AP licenses you currently have on the controller, you can do so by visiting https://support.ruckuswireless.com/asset/123456789012 (Replace 123456789012 with the controller SN)
