Aruba IAP-315 not join Central


I have Aruba IAP-315-RW (firmware and need to join Central eval (90days).

In Global settings I can see IAP-315-RW as subscribed and it has group assigned.

 When I go to Wireles Management I can not see any device assigned.

I tried browse that IAP by browser, I welcomes me Instant (Virtual Controller). What I need to setup to get IAP available on Central device list ? Not sure what I am doing wrong.

My IAP is plugged into the LAN, got DHCP address.

If any additional setup needed ?

Re: Aruba IAP-315 not join Central

Is the IAP in factory-default state? A device with an existing configuration would actually appear on Central in the "Unprovisioned" group. You would see a red notification bar at the bottom of the window:


Generally speaking, there are a few things that need to be working on the LAN for the IAP to connect to Central successfully:


  1. DHCP on Uplink interface (untagged)
  2. DNS Resolution (specifically for ZTP)
  3. NTP ( by default, AP needs accurate time for certificate validation)
  4. HTTPS Outbound (no proxy)

You can read details in the Aruba Central Help:


I would start by verifiying those prerquisites.
