Controller Based WLANs

What do the Access Point Status LEDs on the A800 and A2400 controllers mean?

Product and Software: This article applies to Aruba A800 and A2400 controllers.

 

Each FE port on the A800 and A2400 controllers has an identically numbered Access Point Status LED that represents the status of APs connected to that port on the mobility controller. The location of these LEDs are shown in the following figures.

 

For A800

The Access Point Status LEDs are marked as 2.

 

 

During operation, these LEDs provide the following AP status information:

 

· Red (solid): An AP on this port has failed (highest precedence).

· Red (flashing): An air monitor on this port has detected an unsecured AP. The AP is attached to your network, but it is not listed in the security policies. If security policies are enabled, clients are not granted access to your network through the unsecured AP.

· Green (flashing): An air monitor on this port has detected interference. The interfering device (AP or other radio source) has been detected by your valid APs, but has no wired presence on your network.

· Amber (solid): Load balancing is enabled on this port or an AP has reached the maximum number of clients it is configured to support.

· Green (solid): All detected APs on this port are operating as expected.

· Off: No AP is detected on the port (lowest precedence).

The LED states are listed in order of precedence (highest to lowest). If more than one AP is connected to the port, the state with the highest precedence is displayed.
