The Aruba license is a feature of the Aruba software that allows you to use the licensed features. You can purchase an Aruba license from a reseller or directly from Aruba. When you buy an Aruba license, you get access to all the features that are included in your license package.

Whether you’re new to the world of Aruba or have been using it for years, there’s always something new to learn about how it works. With Aruba licenses, you can find out how to use your platform in ways that will benefit your business and make it easier for you to do your job efficiently. Aruba licenses are a great way to get the most out of your Aruba platform. They offer features and benefits that can help you get more done faster and with less hassle.

Each license can be either an evaluation or a permanent license. A permanent license permanently enables the desired software module on a specific Aruba controller. You obtain permanent licenses through the sales order process only. Permanent software license keys are sent to you via email.

An evaluation license allows you to evaluate the unrestricted functionality of a software module on a specific controller for 90 days (in three 30-day increments). Evaluation licenses are added to Mobility Master and made sharable within a licensing pool. An expired evaluation license will remain in the license database until the controller is reset using the command write erase all, where all license keys are removed. An expired evaluation license has no impact on the normal operation of the controller, but it is kept in the license database to prevent abuse.

Many licenses are consumed on a per-AP, or per-user basis, and are not unique to any specific hardware device. These sharable license types can be assigned to a licensing pool and used by any device within a group of managed devices. A non-sharable license is generated using a controller serial number and can only be used by the individual controller for which it was generated. Both sharable and non-sharable licenses are installed using Mobility Master, allowing network administrators with root-level access to remotely add licenses to any licensing pool or managed devices on the network.

Aruba's licensing model is designed to give you the flexibility you need to make the best decision for your business.
