What is Internal deauth from Aruba access point to client?

Aruba Employee

Answer- Internal deauth is nothing but When driver detects the client ageout of sta, or tx failure, driver sends up SAPCP_AGEOUT to ask stm to clean up the client.
STM forms an internal deauth to tell driver to clean up the node without sending deauth OTA. 
 
From below logs, we could notice client is been de-authed due to reason Internal.
