Does Slave IAP contact Aruba Activate?
Q:

When does the slave IAP contact Aruba Activate?



A:

When IAP's of different model are added as part of the cluster and when the slave IAP's has image mismatch from the master then the slave IAP will contact Aruba Activate to upgrade to the image of the master IAP. 

From the master system logs, we can see the slave IAP image doesn't match with Master IAP.

From the slave system logs, we can see the slave IAP downloading the image from the Image server - http://d2vxf1j0rhr3p0.cloudfront.net

From the Activate, in the device history we will see the type as Firmware-upgrade for the slave IAP.
