On a new Sonicwall NSA220, on System | Licenses, I see this:

The SonicWALL is licensed for 5 Nodes/Users (0 in use).

But here:

It says this: Nodes Supported       Unrestricted

Do I need to buy node licenses to go above 5 nodes, or not?

    if you see 5 users sowing in nodes/user you need to call Sonicwall support.... you can also try upgrading your OS.
    the main page should eb similar to attached (atatcehd screen shot E5500)

    Following your suggestion, I did call Sonicwall support.  They said I need to click on the "upgrade registration" link on the device.

    Thank you for your suggestion.  I greatly appreciate that.

    I do have a problem clicking on that link, and I asked another question about that.

    Thanks again.
