Thanks for the fast reply.

 

however i cannot find the certificate option within Aruba Central. 

The problem is when the Instant accesspoints are managed with Aruba Central the options in Aruba Instant are very limited and you can only configure it with Aruba Central.

Joshua,

 

You can contact Central TAC in the short term and they can push a certificate to your sites that is not revoked.

I have indeed conacted Aruba Networks for the solution.

 

The solution was an custom build firmware:

Is it necessary that the version is shown (6.4.4.4-4.2.3.3_56794)?

I have in my Aruba Central the 6.5.0.0-4.3.0.0_56428 latest version and when I try the downgrade to the 6.4.4.4-4.2.3.3_56794 version, then I get the following message:

<<Firmware available but no supported. Please proceed with caution.>>

caution with firmware

 

Although I when try the downgrade to other version, like 6.4.4.8-4.2.4.2_56164, only I get the "Available" message, without extra warning messages.

I downgrade with "Custom Build" type at the 6.4.4.8-4.2.4.2_56164 firmware, and then, I upgrade to the 6.5.0.0-4.3.0.0_56428 latest firmware that I had at first with "Custom Build" type too, but I still have the revoked cert problem in Google Chrome browser.

The message <<Firmware available but no supported. Please proceed with caution.>> is right. This is an firmware custom build for this problem in combination woth Aruba Central. 

 

In the screenshot below you can see my accesspoint running at the firmware. The message for the newer firmware can be ignored until there is an update where the certificate is renewed of maby an option is build into Aruba Central to upload one.

Can you try it with the custom firmware: 6.4.4.4-4.2.3.3_56794.

Re: How can i upload a new portal certificate in Aruba Central?

Hi,
Just an update on how we solved our issue.
After the custom build downgrade we got login error messages at cloud splash page.
The thing that solved our issue was to create a new empty group and after you create the empty group, add the AP to the group. TAC informed us that this will cause the AP to drop all their existing configuration and peak the new one.
For us this was the missing ingredient.
After that everything works we without the need for an public certificate.
A second issue that we had, is that with the above solution we lost the ability to do bandwidth limit, it just didn't work anymore. We got that solved with the creation of a security/access rule for bandwidth limit in the network profile.
