How to configure Airmatch to set static configuration in an ArubaMM?
Requirement:
In some situations just to limit the coverage of the Access Point and on a specific channel.


Solution:
We can configure Airmatch to set the static value for transmit power/channel when needed and below is the configuration.


Configuration:

To set static configuration:
(ArubaMM) [mynode] #
(ArubaMM) [mynode] #airmatch ap freeze ap-name AP1 eirp 12 band 2ghz channel 11
(ArubaMM) [mynode] #airmatch ap freeze ap-name AP1 eirp 12 band 5ghz channel 36
(ArubaMM) [mynode] #
 
To remove static configuration:
(ArubaMM) [mynode] #
(ArubaMM) [mynode] (config) #airmatch ap unfreeze ap-name AP1 band 2ghz eirp
(ArubaMM) [mynode] (config) #airmatch ap unfreeze ap-name AP1 band 5ghz eirp 


Verification
Command to verify the static configuration:

(ArubaMM) [mynode] (config) #show airmatch debug static-radios 

Static Radios for Band 2GHz

Radio Base Mac    Chan EIRP Oper   /BW   /EIRP Static /BW    Flag Last Update Time    AP Name
                            Channel            Channel

Flag column indicates '*' if Operating Channel is different from Static Channel configured
Note: Operating Channel can be different from Static Channel during Radar event

Static Radios for Band 5GHz
Radio Base Mac    Chan EIRP Oper   /BW   /EIRP Static /BW    Flag Last Update Time    AP Name
                            Channel            Channel                                  
----------------- ---- ---- ------------------ ------------- ---- ------------------- -------
ac:a3:1e:58:03:d0 Yes  Yes       36/   20/  23      36/   20      2017-02-28 12:04:14 AP1

Flag column indicates '*' if Operating Channel is different from Static Channel configured
Note: Operating Channel can be different from Static Channel during Radar event

(ArubaMM) [mynode] (config) #
Below command executed after disabling the static configuration:
(ArubaMM) [mynode] #
(ArubaMM) [mynode] #show airmatch debug static-radios 

no static radios
(ArubaMM) [mynode] #
