I have 8 x Dell Aruba IAP-93 and 4 x Linksys AP connected to a switch/router for internet. I have get another 4 pcs of Aruba IAP-105 (Note: NOT FROM DELL) to replace the existing Linksys AP. After configure through console set IP, netmask, gateway and dns. Than access http set SSID, change login password (apply to all 4 Aruba IAP-105). But when I remove the Linksys AP and connect the Aruba IAP-105, it seen the Dell Instant Virtual Controller do not include those AP inside. The Aruba IAP-105 LED: PWR-solid green, ENET-blinking/solid green, 11A/N and 11B/G/N solid orange. Any suggestion? Thank you

Technically mixing Dell and Aruba branded is not a supported configuration. That being said.......start by checking the version of SW running on the 93s and 105s when running in separate groups. If there is a mismatch you may need to manually upgrade one of the groups of APs to match the other.

I just confirmed that a Dell branded IAP and an Aruba branded IAP cannot join the same cluster. Further, they must have separate management Vlans so the Dell VC does not see the Aruba VC.
