How to push IAP names in bulk from Airwave to IAPs using CSV file

Q:

How to push IAP names in bulk from Airwave to IAPs using CSV file ?

 



A:

We can push  device names from Airwave to IAPs in bulk using CSV file, when we are adding the IAPs VC manually to Airwave. 

Note: Name will not get pushed to IAP which is acting as VCs, it will get pushed to all other IAPs in the cluster.

 

Follow below steps to push names in bulk from Airwave

 

Step 1 :  In AMP Setup > General page  , navigate to Automatic Authorization section 

Set Automatically Authorized Virtual Controller Mode in Manage mode and  Authorize Aruba Instant APs & Aruba Switches to AirWave in Whitelist  and click save 

 

Step 2 :  Upload CSV file to whitelist the devices in APs/Devices > New page in Airwave

Select Import Instant AP & Aruba Switch Whitelist from CSV option and upload the CSV file. We have sample CSV file available to download in new page itself.

 

 

Once we upload the CSV file , we see the IAP devices  whitelisted in new page.

Step 3 : Add Airwave details manually in IAP's system section

Wait for two to three minutes for airwave to discover the IAPs,. Once devices discovered the devices which are listed in whitelist in Airwave will automatically move to respective group/folder based on organization name which we provided in IAP.

Since we set Automatically Authorized Virtual Controller Mode in Manage mode , Airwave will push the device names which we have updated in CSV file.

In screen shot we could see name Aruba and Aruba123 pushed to IAPs which are in cluster but it is not get pushed to device which is acting as VCs, it still show name as test. We need to manually  edit the name in Airwave and push the config change for VCs alone.
