Controller Based WLANs

What is the ARM rogue-ap-aware parameter used for?

Product and Software: This article applies to Aruba controllers A200, A800, A804, A2400, A5000, and A6000 running Aruba AirOS 2.x and 3.x.

 

The ARM rogue-ap-aware parameter is used for ARM configuration.

 

If the rogue-ap-aware ARM option is disabled, an AP will contain a rogue only when the rogue AP is on the same channel used by the monitoring AP. If the option is enabled, the AP will switch to the channel that the rogue is on and contain by continually sending deauths. The ARM option assignment must be enabled. (Please be warned that the ARM options client-aware, voice-aware, and ps-aware have priority over rogue-AP-aware. If scanning is paused for them, the AP will not switch channels to the channel that the rogue is on in order to contain it.). This channel switching is also limited to the valid-channel settings from the ap regulatory-domain, i.e. if only channel 1,6,11 are permitted in regulatory-domain, the AP will not switch to channel 8 even a rogue AP is deteceted. Also, if a rogue AP is already on the channel the AP is on, the AP will not switch to another channel where another rogue might reside.

 

AirOS 2.x

To enable or disable rogue-ap-aware, enter this command:

(Aruba5000) (sap-config location x.y.z) #arm rogue-ap-aware <enable, disable>
