is it possible to set the option "advertise ap name" on an instant AP? I know that there is an option on AOS but I can't find it in an IAP (WebIF nor CLI). -> Sorry in advance if I haven't seen the command or option! :)
Can anyone give me a hint if this is possible or not?
Background: I just opened a case at Ekahau (ESS) because the auto radio combinement isn't working for me. The told me that the logic is based on the AP name.
thanks for your answers

This is still the case. If you have Airwave, you can use the Aruba Utilities Android App to tie into Airwave and see the names of APs on an Android Device.
Advertising AP name only works with a handful of high-priced survey tools. Android utilities works with inexpensive Android Devices...

Thanks for the answer. It's really too bad. I use Ekahau and without the name advertising, 2.4 and 5 GHz radios are shown as seperate APs.
I then have to go combine each of the radios manually...time consuming.
Here is another one missing this feature! I'm using a Netscout AirCheck G2 that claims it has support for Aruba AP-names, but wondered why I wasn't seeing them in my Instant networks and stumbled upon this post.
Also testing The Bald One's excellent "WiFi Ping" tool [*] and was going to suggest as an improvment to auto-detect AP-Names from the Aruba Vendor Tag, but again, it's not going to help me as I mainly work with Instant networks.
So, I'm really hoping to see this feature in future releases, as it would be really useful when throubleshooting roaming issues.
