Product and Software: This article applies to all Aruba controllers and ArubaOS 3.x. 

Currently the default ssid-profile, called default, is being used, and it is available in the controller. Create a new ssid-profile and call it default_clone. 

1)  Show the list of ssid-profiles available on the controller by issuing the following command: 

 

(Aruba800) #show wlan ssid-profile 

SSID Profile List 
----------------- 
Name           References  Profile Status 
----           ----------  -------------- 
default        2 

2)  Show the ssid-profile default by issuing the following command: 

(Aruba) #show wlan ssid-profile default 

The following output is displayed: 

SSID Profile "default" 
---------------------- 
Parameter                                         Value 
---------                                         -----

High-throughput SSID Profile                      default 


3)  Create a new ssid-profile, default_clone, which will have the same settings as default by issuing the following commands: 

(Aruba800) #configure terminal 
Enter Configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z 

(Aruba800) (config) #wlan ssid-profile clone 
(Aruba800) (SSID Profile "clone") #exit 
(Aruba800) (config) #no wlan ssid-profile clone 
(Aruba800) (config) #wlan ssid-profile default_clone 
(Aruba800) (SSID Profile "default_clone") #clone default 
(Aruba800) (SSID Profile "default_clone") #exit 
(Aruba800) (config) #write memory 
Saving Configuration... 

Configuration Saved. 

 

 

4)  Show the updated list of ssid-profiles by issuing the following command: 

(Aruba) #show wlan ssid-profile 

The following output is displayed: 

SSID Profile List 
----------------- 
Name           References  Profile Status 
----           ----------  -------------- 
default        2 
default_clone  0 

5)  Show the ssid-profile, default_clone, by issuing the following command: 

(Aruba800) #show wlan ssid-profile default_clone 

The following output is displayed:
