APs detecting netgear master instead of aruba master

Hi All,

We have a scenario where any AP plugged into the network do not apear on the controller. When connected via SOE I can see that the AP is finding the IP address of a netgear controller via ADP instead of the aruba controller.

In what order to APs attempt to find the aruba controller on the network?

I know they use ADP, DHCP and DNS but in what order?

I was under the impression it was DHCP, DNS then ADP..
Cheers
James

Re: APs detecting netgear master instead of aruba master

I am aware that the netgear controllers run a licensed version of the aruba OS..

Broadcast




Broadcast will override everything else. If you have more than one Aruba Controller on a subnet, there is no telling which one an AP will choose if it boots up on that subnet.

Just use:


(Aruba800-4) (config) #adp igmp-join disable

(Aruba800-4) (config) #adp discovery disable


On the controller that you don't want the AP discover via broadcast.
