Objective
To apply any license key on a WiNG controller via the CLI
Environment
  • WiNG
  • RFS controller series

  • Any license
  • CLI
Procedure
Prerequisites:
  • SSH (Secure Shell) client such as Putty.exe

#show licenses
Other license types are highlighted in yellow. Those are controller model dependant, hence not all license types are supported on every controller.

  For details on the types of licences used in WiNG, please follow this link: What types of licenses are used in WiNG?

Important note:
If a license key is already configured and needs to be replaced (in case of license increase), it is imperative to remove the old one first before applying the new license key. Here's an example of an AAP license: 
>en
#self
#no license aap
#license aap 1b123456789238a40e123456789ac75974a4406b31768a0496581234567895edd72ebc
#com wr
#show licenses

 
Additional notes
Nsight Advance license (NSIGHT-adv) will be included in future releases of the firmware and will be mentioned in the release notes at that time. As of firmware version 5.9.2.0 this license type was still not supported.
