What happens when we configure "Uplink Vlan" in AP provisioning profile?
Q:
What happens when we configure "Uplink Vlan" in AP provisioning profile?


A:
AP provisioning profile has various configuration in order to push/provision few parameters to Access Point in which We can configure an Uplink VLAN so that the AP connected to a port in trunk mode can send and receive frames tagged with the specified VLAN on its Ethernet uplink.  By default, an AP has an Uplink vlan of 0, which disables this feature.
If an AP is provisioned with an Uplink VLAN, it must be connected to a trunk mode port or the AP’s frames will be dropped.
 
Below is the provisioning profile configuration for reference:
(Aruba) #   show ap provisioning-profile default
