Question   How to verify who is logging in and out of the controller and from where ?
Environment   This article applies to Aruba Mobility Controllers running ArubaOS version 6.3.0.0.

 

 

The "show audit-trail" command can show you configuration commands that are typed on the command line or on the GUI.  It can also show you who is logging in and out.  but one limitation of this command is that it cannot by default show only  who is logging in and out of your controller.  In ArubaOS 6.3 there is a "show audit-trail login" command that shows ONLY logins and logouts
