Boot up the first AP in a L2 network where there is no existing Instant cluster and no existing Aruba controller. Also ensure that there that the Unified AP is not provisioned in Central, and no DHCP options has been provisioned to redirect the AP to AirWave. Upon failure to detect existing Instant cluster, existing Aruba controller, and no relevant Central/AirWave configruation, Unified AP will broadcast a SSID SetMeUP-xx:xx:xx, connect to this SSID, then open https://setmeup.arubanetworks.com, login with admin/admin. There will be instructions provided on how to convert this Unified AP as the first Instant AP/virtual controller. Subsequent APs (including Unified AP) boot up in the same L2 network will join this VC as long as the AP belongs to the same hardware family or the AP is having the same firmware release if they belong to different hardware family.
