We are using s2500 Series switch.
I have 7 Access points connected to the switch. I need to connect this switch to my other site via Fiber optics uplink .
I am using GUI interface and from there I am making port from birged to tunnel ( see attached Image “GUI”).
As soon I change the mode from briged to tunnel Wireless Access points goes dead not even powering up.
But when it is in bridged mode Access points are working but fiber link is dead.

Putting aside the PoE and Fiber issue a moment, an AP cannot be connected to a tunneled node port. The reason being, Aruba Campus APs use GRE to communicate with their Mobility Controller. Tunneled Node also uses GRE being that it turns a Mobility Access Switch into a Wired AP. When an AP is connected to a Tunneled Node port, it creates a GRE within a GRE tunnel which the Mobility Controller cannot handle.
All that said, the state of a tunneled node port should not affect either PoE or Fiber connectivity however the application you are trying to configure is not supported.
