We can take wireless packet captures of specific wireless client
|Question||how can we take the wireless captures of a specific wireless client using CLI, which would help us in client specific troubleshooting.|
|Environment||This article applies to AOS 6.3 and above|
In order to troubleshoot client specific issues, in AOS 6.3 we could take the packet capture of a specifc client. below are the commands to enable the captures
(Aruba) #packet-capture datapath wifi-client ?
<mac-address> MAC address of the client
(Aruba) #packet-capture datapath wifi-client <mac-address> ?
all Capture both decrypted and encrypted packets
decrypted Capture decrypted packets only
encrypted Capture encrypted packets only
Capture destinations can be one of the following:
- local-filesystem : Packets are stored on the controller and can be seen inside the tech support logs.
- ip-address : Packets are GRE-encapsulated and mirrored to a remote destination.
- interface : Packets are mirrored to an interface on the controller.
(Aruba) #packet-capture destination ?
interface Send captured packets to an interface
ip-address Send captured packets to a remote destination
local-filesystem Store captured packets on the controller in pcap files
(Aruba) #packet-capture destination interface ?
<slot/port> Interface in <slot>/<port> format
(Aruba) #packet-capture destination ip-address ?
<ipaddr> A.B.C.D IP address
(Aruba) #packet-capture destination local-filesystem ?
