My Zone Director have just crashed. I understand that the zone director by standard comes with 5 access points licences. Why should I buy a zonedirector if I can deploy unleased network of about 25 access points

Unleashed is pretty awesome, but  I feel like there is a level of professionalism and availability added when you have a Zone Director. I use it to control APs at multiple sites, ZD or VSCG helps me maintain multisite visibility, and allows me to have glandular admin access controls for various admins.
Question - How many APs do you have per site and are they unleashed compatible models?

Thanks for your answer. As of Now:
At the HQ I have 5 access points
3 Zone Offices with 3 access points maximum.
I'm using the R310 and R320 which are believe to be unleashed compatible models

I would test 310 and 320's on unleashed very carefully. There are some people who feel there are  WPA performance issues once you add the overhead of running unleashed OS and https/http services.
I hope that helps.

Andrew many thanks for your quick support. One more question: I have downloaded OVA virtual Smart Zone. Before deploying it I would like to know from your experience guys if it is required to have  license for that OVA?

Hi Jose,

vSZ OVA comes with 90 days default validity for trial usage along with full features enabled. Post 90 days if you do not purchase the product, all the APs will go down and system will not be functional.

Hi Jose,

Does the vSZ has enough AP license to manage?

If yes, from the GUI >> Access Points >> Click on the AP >> Scroll down and check for the "Configuration Status". 

Does it show "Up-To-date"?

If yes, check the WLAN group you have set for the AP\AP-Group\Zone.
Make sure the SSIDs are added to the WLAN group to be broadcasted on the AP.

You can also check on the AP CLI if the SSIDs are broadcasted using the command "get wlanlist".

If you have a Ruckus Rep, don't hesitate to email that person/var to let them know where your at, VSCG requires some work, if you've not already selected a "TYPE" I highly recommend VZ-E. if you go VZ-H all isn't lost, but the system overall is more difficult to admin/understand.
