Question: Can I enable spectrum load balancing when band steering is enabled in ArubaOS 6.0?
Product and Software: This article applies to all Aruba controllers and ArubaOS 6.0.
It is not advisable to enable spectrum load balancing when band steering is enabled.
Band steering follows the 4:1 rule, which says when four clients are in a-radio, it tries to place the fifth client in g-radio. Hence, spectrum load balancing can cause a conflict because (starting in ArubaOS 6.0) it tries to place the users equally on both the radios.
For g-radio, we can enable both features.
