SonicWave stuck in Licensing
03/26/2020 122 11772
SonicWave status will show as “Not Licensed” on Sonicwall for SonicWave while trying to apply key set.
- Apply manual key after disabling the "Enforce SonicWave license activation from secure trusted license manager" from Network | Zones | Configure WLAN zone , that should resolve the issue.
- Make sure you can ping licensemanager.sonicwall.com from System | Diagnostics page first
- From System | Licenses, apply the License Keyset manually: How to manually Register a SonicWall device?
If the Above workaround does not work, the issue might be related to custom NAT policy configuration.
CAUTION: If SonicWave has never been activated, this manual keyset option does not work.
Basically existing NAT policies can block the traffic between SonicWave and License Manager. In that case please, we will need to add a NAT policy as below (in this example, X2 is the WLAN interface).
