I was send the follwoing today
Advisory ID: ARUBA-PSA-2016-004
Publication Date: 2016-May-04
Please can someone explain the Aruba firmware release pattern / naming convention.
The advisory says that Aruba Instant (all versions up to, but not including, 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52) are affected but sorry to sound stupid but the current relased is 184.108.40.206-220.127.116.11_54637 and this is for 4.xxxx. Also when was the 'safe' version of Aruba instant firmware relased?
Solved! Go to Solution.

My guess is that the 4.x.x.x refers to the middle part of the full version number. I.e. 18.104.22.168-22.214.171.124_54637 = 126.96.36.199. And 188.8.131.52-184.108.40.206 is the latest release in the Early Deployment branch.
But that still doesn't explain where 220.127.116.11 can be downloaded. The latest release in the General Availability branch is 18.104.22.168-22.214.171.124 (I.e. 126.96.36.199 if my theory is correct) and the Early Deployment branch only have 4.2.x.x versions.

The full Aruba Instant version numbers is built up like: <ArubaOS base version>-<Aruba Instant version>_<build number>.
The ArubaOS base version defines from which Controller release this Instant version has been derived, and is there for information purposes only; the same for the Build Number.
So in most cases you only take the middle part 4.x.x.x into account.
Aruba Instant firmware is available without support contract from the 'Check new version' in the Maintenance tab in the virtual controller, or via the support website under Life time warranty software: http://support.arubanetworks.com/LifetimeWarrantyS
Version 188.8.131.52 has not been released yet, you may work with Aruba TAC to get an estimated release date.
If you have urgent issues, please contact your Aruba partner or Aruba TAC.

I'm sitting on 184.108.40.206 and have been checking for firmware since the bulletins have come out under Maintenance. It won't pull any updates down.
You can update manually by URL. What URL should we be using?
