Please consider to have the COTD page rejuvenates!

Getting access to useful commands is the bread and butter of any network engineer’s life.

I have learned so many tricks in COTD.

Hi All,

maybe it just exsist and i miss it,


it's possible to have a mailing list that inform us when a new arubaos/meshos comes out with attached release notes?


lot's of time i know that there's a new release only when i've issue and i look for that, maybe have a ml can help to prevent issues and keep us update on new release feature.

How about a "Start Here" Section

Status: Reviewing
by ‎11-21-2011 05:59 AM

So, I find myself posting instructions at least once a week on how to put a user's device into debug mode on the controllers. I'm thinking it might be nice to have a Start Here section with information on how to do things like this. This would be a place where we could post a list of things to do before calling TAC or posting in the forum about a bug/issue. There is probably a way to have moderator approval prior to it being posted in that section, which would probably be a good idea as well.


Just a thought.

It has happened on a few occasions where for example an IAP firmware was pulled from the support site without notifications even though we or maybe others have upgraded to use this version.

For example, IAP and was pulled.


I would like to see a notification, I don't need details, just a simple notification that it was pulled. If we/I want details I'll ask my SE or TAC.


Can this be possible? Through Airheads? Through some other means?

When I go to my profile, I can show all of my posts, but I'd like to be able to filter, or click on something so that it only shows 'Post started by me' and also maybe my posts that have been accepted as solutions.

Text is too light

I'm not sure what happened on the web, but some art director somewhere decided that light grey text on a white background looked cool.


That may be true, but for some of us, it makes the text very hard to read. I've got to say that this site is one of the worst I've ever seen. The text of posts is just too light. Can you darken it up a bit (or a lot)?


Thank you.

Community shared documents

Status: New
by MVP MVP ‎11-04-2015 10:29 AM

Thought came to me after seeing a @cappali document on comparing juniper vs cisco vs aruba switches.


Why not have a central place here where community members can share these types of documents. Separate obviously from Aruba.

It will lead to more discussion about networking in general and help us Airheads make better use of the tools we have in front of us

There is a Japan Forum in Airheads !

Why don't open a French Forum ?

A forum APP for Windows phone

Status: New
by MVP MVP ‎01-29-2014 06:21 AM - edited ‎01-29-2014 06:22 AM

I have a Windows phone and I would like to have an APP that would permit me to get notifications on posts that I'm interested.

In the previous AIrheads forum, we were able to receive emails from the system when there was a new post, as this system is also able to do, but on the old system from that email we were able to respond with the text between two lines and have that response posted directly to the existing thread.It would be great if we could get that functionality back...

Status: Accepted
Hey Harold, This functionality will be released in the future. We will let you know when it has been implemented. Thanks, Meghan

When someone submits an article, they need to subscribe to see new comments or approved/published status over email. Automatically subscribing each poster to the articles they have created will avoid this extra step. 


I have been seeing a lot of questions related to Aruba Instant, and hence I would suggest having a single bucket where all the questions related to Instant can fall into. 


Thanks for considering. 

Status: Implemented
The Aruba Instant board is located here

Blacklist Notification.

Status: Read
by e1d ‎03-07-2012 12:53 AM

Hi guys,

I think it would be awesome if in the next ArubaOS updates, blacklisted users are notified whenever they are blacklisted.

If they're blacklisted because of failed login or any other suspision, then they should know about it to take action.

If they're manually blacklisted, I think they should know it too.


The blacklist notification would be really helpful to wifi administrator.

Since a blacklisted user cannot pass any traffic, this is not possible.

Subject column width is too short

Status: Reviewing
by hthakker ‎11-18-2011 08:01 AM

 The current subject column is too short which makes it hard to read. It would be great if you could increase the column width for subject. so that it appears on a single line.

Posts with No Response Link

It'd be fantastic if we could get a link that automatically shows all posts with no response posted yet.




Blue text

Maybe this is just me, but the blue text used for the topic headers and other items around the site is very hard on the eyes.  Anyone find that to be the case?

Enhancement request community button

Status: New
by MVP MVP ‎03-05-2014 08:04 AM

It would be a great idea to have that button in here!

As we cannot post idea for new products or to suggest things for the ones that arubanetworks already got, well could be a good idea putting that button here, like create case, and download firmware.
