Question: How do I push a configuration to Aruba Instant APs?
Product and Software: This article applies to Aruba Instant.
Configuration of Instant is supported via AirWave. This is different from controller-based configurations because there is no template-to-GUI configuration facility.
The idea is that you keep one or two Instant APs in the lab to build and test a configuration. When the configuration is ready to be pushed to production, import the configuration into AirWave, which forms a template configuration. (When the Aruba Instant AP is configured in the AirWave server, Aruba Instant sends the configuration template to the AirWave server using HTTP for every 5 minutes). However, this template configuration cannot be edited in AirWave. Then you push this template out to the remote Instant clusters.
Any changes to the configuration require a repeat of the process. The change must be made on the lab Instant APs, the configuration is imported into AirWave, and then the template is distributed to the production clusters.
