Does country code of all the Instant APs need to be same in order to form a cluster ?
Environment : This article applies to all Aruba Instant Access Points running any version of Aruba InstantOS.
Yes, the country code of all the IAPs in the cluster should be the same in order to form the cluster. Instant APs are available in the following variants:
- IAP-XX-US : Restricted to US Regulatory Domain
- IAP-XX-JP : Restricted to Japan Regulatory Domain
- IAP-XX-IL : Restricted to Israel Regulatory Domain
- IAP-XX : Rest of World
(Where XX is the Model of the IAP, such as 92, 93, 105 etc..)
Regulatory domain of the Master and the new joining Instant AP should be same. If the regulatory domains do not match then you will see a message in “AP Log System” saying "AP regulatory domain don’t match the master".
Note: Country Code comes into account even when IAP is being converted to Campus AP (CAP) or Remote AP (RAP). The country code of the IAP and the controller needs to be same for the AP to come up on controller.
