Aruba Employee
Requirement:

Prior to 4.2 code, the SSID name will be same as SSID profile name.

Need  to make SSID name to be different than the  SSID profile name.



Solution:

Prior to 4.2 code, the SSID name will be same as SSID profile name.

From 4.2 code we can change the SSID name to be different than the SSID profile name.

A new knob "ESSID" is been added in the SSID profile.

IAP (config) # wlan ssid-profile test
