Airwave and Instant AP

Hello,

 

Sorry for this noobish question but after reading docs about Airwave and Instant AP, I am still confuse about this : is it possible to manage wifi parameters of the AP in Airwave ?

 

Is it in the Aruba Configuration ? I have set up Groups and WLANs but there is no reflect in the AP. Is it the correct way or not ?

 

Thanks for your help.

Read the last page in the PDF I attached to my previous post - it will answer your question (also on the HOW TO?)

Re: Airwave and Instant AP

The short answer is that Instant APs are currently managed in AMP via templates.  There's a feature being worked on to allow for GUI config like we do for other Aruba APs.  This feature is targetted for AMP 7.7 (this summer, 2013).

Re: Airwave and Instant AP

Thanks for the both replies and the document.

 

One more question following this, what is the use of "Aruba Configuration" (Groups and Wlan's)  in "Device Setup" ? Does it work with Instant AP ?

 

Thanks again.

Re: Airwave and Instant AP

I add an other question : I have a global group with subscriber groups. In the template of the global group, there are 2 wlan ssid-profile, one that must not change in the subscriber template and the other will change (SSID and encryption key). Reading the doc, I have understand that I must use Template Variables to do this but I need a bit of help to start this.

 

Thanks a lot.

Re: Airwave and Instant AP

The Aruba Configuration tab under Device Setup is for campus controller / access points, not IAPs.  IAPs only adhere to the Group -> select group where instant APs are in -> template.  Instant APs will get a tab similar to Aruba Config in AMP 7.7.

 

For templates, the variables are listed along the right hand side.  There are about a dozen built in variables, and then another 10 "custom variables" which you will sub in the template as %custom_variable_1%.  Then on the VC's manage page, you will update custom_variable_1 to the desired setting.  Typically, I skip the first custom variable since it allows a larger text in case I need to add a larger template change.  If you assign a custom variable in the template, all VCs in the group must have a value for that value on their manage page otherwise a mismatch will be reported.
