Aruba Instant AP (apboot) Commands and Environment Variables

[ Edited ]

Dear Forum,

 

I'm tired of looking up these commands every time they are needed. Extracted and placed these in a forum post so one can reference them when out in the field. NONE of this information can be found in the KB documents. Enjoy!! =D

 

Pre-boot Commands:

 

apboot> help
?              - alias for 'help'
boot           - boot the OS image
clear          - clear the OS image or other information
date           - get/set/reset date & time
dhcp           - invoke DHCP client to obtain IP/boot params
factory_reset  - reset to factory defaults
help           - print online help
mfginfo        - show manufacturing info
ping           - send ICMP ECHO_REQUEST to network host
printenv       - print environment variables
purgeenv       - restore default environment variables
reset          - Perform RESET of the CPU
saveenv        - save environment variables to persistent storage
setenv         - set environment variables
tftpboot       - boot image via network using TFTP protocol
upgrade        - upgrade the APBoot or OS image
version        - display version

 

Environment Variables:

 

bootdelay=2
baudrate=9600
autoload=n
boardname=Talisker
servername=aruba-master
bootcmd=boot ap
autostart=yes
bootfile=mips32.ari
