Working with Auto POE in Aruba Instant

 

Auto-POE Priority

When an IAP is plugged into a PoE enabled port on the MAS, the MAS automatically increases the PoE priority from low (default) to high. This only occurs if the poe-profile associated with the given port is using the poe-factory-initial profile and the default poe-priorty has not been manually changed.

GE0/0/6    Enable  2400             Low            On
GE0/0/7    Enable  0                Low            Off
<INTENTIONALLY SNIPPED>

From the output above, you can see that port 0/0/2 currently has a PoE priority of High. While this output alone does not necessarily indicate that there is an IAP plugged in there, you can verify it using the show lldp neighbors output as shown above.
