Enabling Pre-Standard POE detection for AP-22x series
Requirement:

Enabling Pre-Standard POE detection for AP-22x series.



Solution:

There are 2 POE + detectors on the AP. One is the standard 802.3at detector & other is voltage comparator (pre-standard).

In 6.4.4.8, there was a change made to disregard the result of pre-standard detector as it can give a false positive result. So, due to this change E1 port on the AP was showing as disabled post upgrade.

In case you still need the pre-standard detection, we have introduced a knob in AP provisioning profile which can enable that detection.

This knob is available only via CLi beginning 6.4.4.10.

 

 



Configuration:

 

(Primary) (config) #show ap provisioning-profile default  ( The output below is just a snippet).

Provisioning profile "default"
------------------------------
Parameter                                                             Value
---------                                                                      -----
Remote-AP                                                             No
Master IP/FQDN                                                    N/A
PPPOE User Name                                                N/A
PPPOE Password                                                   N/A
USB power mode                                                  auto
AP2xx prestandard POE detection                Disabled

 

Please use the following steps:

 

1. Creation the AP provisioning profile & enabling legacy POE detection.

 

(Aruba7010) (config) #ap provisioning-profile test

(Aruba7010) (Provisioning profile "test") #ap2xx-prestandard-poe-detection

(Aruba7010) (Provisioning profile "test") #exit

 

2.  We can create AP -specific profile if we want to test for 1 AP.

 

(Aruba7010) (config) #ap-name <name of AP>

(Aruba7010) (AP name "AOS-1") #provisioning-profile test

(Aruba7010) (AP name "AOS-1") #exit

 



Verification
