Re: Add ap on airwave

since it is a aruba access point, is there any reason not to use ammon instead but SNMP?

Secondly do you have sufficient LIC-AW?

Instant APs do not use AMON.  They use https post between the IAP and Airwave:

  Instant APs should be added to Airwave throught the Instant VC gui like below.  They should not be added through the Airwave device add dialog.  They are also not monitored through airwave by setting an SNMP read string on the IAP.
