I have 2 APs 175 in a mesh configuration and everything works fine. If I login to the controller I can display the connected users on the Mesh Portal and Mesh Point. However, when I display the APs in Airwave it always have an user status of 0. I'm not sure why the Airwave isn't logging user data for the mesh link.
If I click on the Mesh Point AP, it displays the AP being a mesh link and lists the Mesh Portal AP as the uplink, so I think I added the APs in Airwave correctly.

Yes, the A radio that is in mesh mode is also serving the clients. Even though Airwave is displaying the APs as a mesh, the entire mesh configure is not in Airwave for the APs. Like the mesh cluster profile, AP group and etc.. I was going to import the controller configuration into Airwave, and then delete and re-add the APs in Airwave. Do you think that might help?
Also before the I changed the role of the wired AP to a Mesh portal, it was collecting user data fine.

There is a bug in ArubaOS 126.96.36.199 and 1 where if you are monitoring a controller through Airwave that has mesh Aps, it will not show any clients. Due to be fixed in ArubaOS 188.8.131.52.
If you want to open a support case, please do so that they can confirm.

You should not need to import configuration specifically mesh for AirWave to monitor clients on mesh radios. I think you are running into the limitation that AirWave is not showing client information on mesh radios. I will investigate that and get back to you.

I did import of the Aruba configs and re-added the mesh APs in Airwave, and you were correct, it didn't make a difference. We are currently running version 7.2.1 of Airwave and 184.108.40.206 on the controllers. Over the summer we will upgrade Airwave to the latest release and probably 6.x on the controllers. If the problem still persists after the upgrade, I can open a support case with Aruba.

We were able to reproduce the issue on a mesh+access radio and will keep you posted on the fix. I am hoping I should have an answer in a day or two. Thanks for being patient.
