Product and Software: This article applies to all Aruba Instant APs and Aruba Instant 1.1.0.0 and later.

 

When management access for Aruba Instant is configured to use RADIUS server (without fallback), there is a possible scenario of Aruba Instant AP (IAP) interface being inaccessible because the RADIUS server is unavailable to authenticate users.

 

Under this situation, use the default username / password (admin / forgetme!) to log into the IAP. Enable local access by issuing these commands:

 

iAP_Ptl# configure terminal

 

Warning: configuration via CLI is not supported!

 

iAP_Ptl (config) # no mgmt-auth-server << Radius Server Authentication removed

 

(or)

 

iAP_Ptl (config) #mgmt-auth-server-local-backup << Local Authentication is attempted when RADIUS server is unreachable

 

iAP_Ptl (config) # mgmt-user instant << Local Authentication enabled

Password:

 

Re-Type Password:

 

At this point, the user can access the IAP interface using the local credential created.
