AP packet capture failing?

I've been trying to get a packet capture from an AP via Monitoring > all AP's and then selecting an AP here and clicking Packet Capture.
After selecting the right ssid I've added a stream with target ip being my pc's wired interface and then starting this stream.

In Wireshark (latest version: 1.6.0) I've set up aruba_erm (under preferences) to look at port 5555 and am sniffing my wired interface.

All firewalls and virusscanners have been disabled yet I do not get ANY aruba_erm traffic.
I've tried this with controllers running versions 6.0.1.2 and 6.1.1.0 without success.

Has anyone else encountered this?


EDIT: found the issue. The AP is sending the capture data so its role (ap-role) needs to allow for traffic towards port tcp 5555. As soon as I edited this role my capture works.
