Don't know if this has been discussed before, sorry if it already had.
I'm planning to factory reset my Aruba 6000 and write all the configuration again, but I wonder what happen with my 100 APs already installed throughout the campus ?
Will they attach to the controller after I set the same IP address on it ?
or Do I have to factory reset all APs too ?
Thanks for any help.

There are multiple mechanisms that can be used by the APs...
a) if the controller advertises (ADP) its IP address throughout the campus.
b) they will also reattach if each AP already has programming to point to the controller's IP address .
c) they will also reattach if the controllers IP is in your DNS server and/or DHCP scope that the APs get
As the APs reattach they will look for their old AP-groups...so make sure you rebuild the controller with the same AP-group names ;)

So I have to keep same IP's, AP-Group names in the controller.
I have static IPs on each AP.
I'm planning to change the VLAN's scheme in the new configuration I hope that won't cause any trouble.
