Unable to disable a particular SSID/Rouge AP...

Hi guys,

We have deployed this setup with A620 and AP105s on ArubaOS 5.0.3.3.
We found this SSID (A's iMac) in Interfering AP, and disabled this rouge AP.

However, after the user turned off and then turned on the rouge AP, Aruba was unable to disable the Rouge AP with SSID, A's iMac.

Any settings to check?
Pls help :)

Thanks.

You would only be able to disable a rogue consistently with a dedicated Air monitor.

Thanks bro.

Shouldn't an AP be sufficient to disable the rouge AP?
Is it due to the nature of the AP that an AP only does the air monitoring only in a small fraction of time?

Thanks in advance!

Only an Air monitor spends enough time on the channel of a rogue to contain it sufficiently. An AP can do it if you have enough density, but an AP's priority is to serve clients.
