Product and Software: This article applies to all ArubaOS versions.
Sometimes you need to test MUX function, but there is no MUX controller available. You can convert an A2400 or A800 into a MUX controller, but this needs to be done via Shell mode, which is only available to the Aruba TAC team.
Within Shell mode:
Convert an A2400 into an A2400E:
#platid -c A24E
Convert an A800 into an A800E:
#platid -c A8E
To convert them back to an A2400 or an A800, you can do:
#platid -c A2400
#platid -c A800
