Q:

What is the functionality of "AllowAll" service under airgroup in Instant OS?



A:

In Instant OS, we can enable Airgroup and below are the pre-configured services available:

18:64:72:c6:d7:28# show airgroup status
----------------------------------------------------------
airplay     
airprint    
itunes      
remotemgmt  
sharing     
chat        
googlecast  
DIAL        
DLNA Media  
DLNA Print  
allowall    

 

When we select allowall, it doesnt mean that all the services will be enabled. When "allowall" Airgroup service is enabled, device that advertises services which are not configured in the IAP and are dynamically added to allow all Airgroup service.

To ensure that the Airgroup service is functioning properly make sure to select what all service/service-id's are applicable and allow them all. 

 

18:64:72:c6:d7:28# show airgroupservice


AirGroupService Details
-----------------------
Service      Description                      Status      Disallowed-Role  Disallowed-VLAN  ID
----------     --------------------------           -----------     ---------------------     -----------------------  ---
allowall   Remaining-Services      Disabled
 

Note: On Aruba OS(controllers), the functionality is slightly different. If "allowall" is enabled, irrespective of any configured service being disabled, it will still work/be allowed.
