Re: Aruba Central and Stacking

It should be now supported since software release WB.16.04.0008:

 

"Management of 2920 stacks on Aruba Central

Besides enabling the stacking REST APIs, 16.04 also allows for 2920 stacks to be fully managed by Aruba Central.

Please refer to the Aruba Central release notes for information on availability on the feature. For more information, see the ArubaOS-Switch Management and

Configuration Guide for your switch."

Re: Aruba Central and Stacking

As a warning, when you add any switches (stacked or otherwise) to Aruba Central, prepare to lose your VLAN port configurations.  That's what happened to us when adding single switches, though we haven't added any stacks yet.

 

Also, web management goes away, though you may have already expected that.

Not to speak that ArubaOS-Switch Management and Configuration Guide for WB.16.04 (edition: September 2014) still reports that Aruba Central feature is not supported on (frontplane/backplane) Stacks

 

Documentation probably needs to be properly updated (and keep aligned with) about existing/removed restrictions.

 

Could it be that Aruba Central implementation for (frontplane/backplane) Stacking configurations is still in development (so there are bugs that need to be fixed)?
