AirWave 7.7.5 & IGC (Instant GUI Config)

 

It's now even easier to manage IAP deployments with AirWave!

 

With the release of AirWave 7.7.5 (now on the Aruba Networks support site - http://support.arubanetworks.com/DOWNLOADSOFTWARE/tabid/75/DMXModule/510/Default.aspx?EntryId=12177 ) , its now possible to leverage AirWave to configure the IAP GUI as an alternative to using templates as part of the group configuration. The premise is the same, however you'll now notice that you cycle thru the familiar IAP GUI screens versus importing an initial template to the AirWave group which pushes the config to all subsequent IAP's in the group.

 

To do this, you need to enable this feature functionality in AirWave from the following screen:

Then you cycle through the common screens like you would on an individual cluster config. The benefit of this is that you are able to leverage the same zero touch capability of Aruba's Activate provisioning portal in conjunction with Airwave - but now with the common look and feel of the IAP GUI.

 

First click "NEW" from the IAP CONFIG screen:

then onto VLANS:

then onto Security:

....and finally onto Access:

And we're done!

Note that you can edit any of the configuration parameters once created much like you can in the IAP GUI so if you want to modify something post the initial wizard, its easily done.

 

A couple of notes:

 

1) You cannot combine IGC with template config, you either use one or the other.

2) There is a slight delay in feature parity on Airwave and IAP code. Currently supported IAP code for this is 6.2.1.0_3.2.x (whereas GA is 3.4)

Re: AirWave 7.7.5 & IGC (Instant GUI Config)

I had been experimenting with the ICG Instant config gui on AMP version 7.7.4.

I was happy to see that 7.7.5 came out and I quickly upgraded AMP versions.

Once the system came up I got this message....

IGC engine is not currently running. It may be disabled. Enable it on the Groups Basic page. The engine may take a few minutes to start after it is enabled.


The instant GUI is enabled on the particular IAP cluster group I am using.

When I went to the event log this is what I see.

Sat Oct 19 14:59:25 2013SystemSystemRestarting service IGC   
Sat Oct 19 14:59:11 2013SystemSystemRestarting service IGC   
Sat Oct 19 14:58:55 2013SystemSystemRestarting service IGC   
Sat Oct 19 14:58:41 2013SystemSystemRestarting service IGC   
Sat Oct 19 14:58:25 2013SystemSystemRestarting service IGC   
Sat Oct 19 14:58:10 2013SystemSystemRestarting service IGC   
Sat Oct 19 14:57:56 2013SystemSystemRestarting service IGC   
Sat Oct 19 14:57:41 2013SystemSystemRestarting service IGC   
Sat Oct 19 14:57:25 2013SystemSystemRestarting service IGC   
Sat Oct 19 14:57:10 2013SystemSystemRestarting service IGC   
Sat Oct 19 14:56:56 2013SystemSystemRestarting service IGC   
Sat Oct 19 14:56:40 2013SystemSystemRestarting service IGC   
Sat Oct 19 14:56:25 2013SystemSystemRestarting service IGC   
Sat Oct 19 14:56:10 2013SystemSystemRestarting service IGC

 

It seems that the Instant GUI service cannot start.

Pretty Awesome Huh... I rebooted my system.  Deleted all groups that ever used ICG  on ver. 7.7.4.

I had a TAC tech look at it with no success.  It has been elevated but no info yet.

 

So maybe wait to upgrade to 7.7.5.

Re: AirWave 7.7.5 & IGC (Instant GUI Config)

What could be happening that it's not possible to download Airwave from licensing.aruba.com ?

We need to download it now while waiting our user to get access to support to be approved 

 

The result after clicking the download link is:

 

The application could not process you request. The error occured has been logged.

 

 

Any help about that ?

thanks

Re: AirWave 7.7.5 & IGC (Instant GUI Config)

Adam:

 

thanks for your quick response.

the matter is that I can reach the page, get logged in, but after clicking on My Airwave, and then Download, a message is prompted:

 

The application could not process you request. The error occured has been logged.

 

Our client was registered, we got the licenses for the controller, and we even bought an Airwave license to them, but no way to download it.

 

Are we missing something ?

If you need any data pls. let me know.

thanks,

Regards,

Nelson
