Q:

How would I configure to get an email trigger, when a virtual controller disconnects from Aruba central?



A:

As we know, Virtual Controller is the one who communicates with Aruba Central and keeps reporting on the statistics and status of the other IAPs in the cluster. Therefore, it becomes extremely important to have a notification configured when VC does not talk to Aruba central any more.

Virtual controller may stop communicating to central in two instances. One is due to a network issue, which could be routing of internet connectivity at the site from ISP.  Secondly, the IAP could be restarted due to any reason, either controllable or un-controllable. In both cases, it is necessary that an administrator gets notified so immediate action can be put in place to restore the situation.

Follow the steps below to configure a notification for Virtual Controller disconnect:

 

  1. Click on the notification at the top-right and go to Settings.
  2. If you already have notifications, then scroll down to bottom and click on "Add Notification"
  3. Select event as "Virtual Controller disconnected and fill in additional details as shown below:

 

 

NOTE:  Enter the group that you would like to monitor and the email address that you would like to receive emails on.

 

       4.  Click on Save and close the notification dialog box.
