What happens when we configure "Uplink Vlan" in AP provisioning profile?
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 Provisioning profile "default" ------------------------------ Parameter Value --------- ----- Remote-AP No Master IP/FQDN N/A PPPOE User Name N/A PPPOE Password N/A PPPOE Service Name N/A USB User Name N/A USB Password N/A USB Device Type none USB CSR-Key Storage No USB Device Identifier N/A USB Dial String N/A USB Initialization String N/A USB TTY device data path N/A USB TTY device control path N/A USB modeswitch parameters N/A Link Priority Ethernet 0 Link Priority Cellular 0 Cellular modem network preference auto Username of AP so that AP can authenticate to 802.1x using PEAP N/A Password of AP so that AP can authenticate to 802.1x using PEAP N/A Uplink VLAN 0 USB power mode auto AP POE Power optimization disabled (Aruba) #
How to configure Uplink VLAN is as below:
(Aruba) # (Aruba) #configure terminal Enter Configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z (Aruba) (config) #ap provisioning-profile default (Aruba) (Provisioning profile "default") #uplink-vlan 10 (Aruba) (Provisioning profile "default") #! (Aruba) (config) # (Aruba) #
