Disable Console Access in Aruba Controllers
Q:

How to disable console access in Aruba Controllers?



A:

This feature is supported starting from Aruba OS 6.5.0.0 and above. 

A new command, mgmt-user console-block, is introduced to disable the console-login.

The purpose of this command is to introduce an ability to lock down all console ports, for example, micro USB, mini USB on the controller to enable high-level security. 

This also ensures that no Secure Shell (SSH) access is allowed at the remote branch office. The SSH is only allowed from the headquarters through the IPsec tunnel.
