Limit Single SSID to a Certain AP in Aruba Network

How can you Limit a Single SSID to an AP , Example Guest SSID available in Conference Room AP only.

Create a new AP-Group (configuration> Wireless> AP Configuration).  Go to that new AP group under wireless lan> Virtual AP.  Click on Add to add the Guest Virtual AP.  Next, provision the access point you want to only broadcast the guest network to that AP-Group (configuration> Wireless> AP Installation> Provision.  Select the AP you want to change>  Change the AP Group and Click on Reprovision).  The AP will reboot into that AP group and only broadcast the Virtual APs you specified.

Re: Limit Single SSID to a Certain AP in Aruba Network

HI,

 

For an instant environment running on 6.4.2.

I can't find a configuration> Wireless> AP Configuration in the virtualcontroller webinterface. Has this changed? How is done now?

 

Basically I want to deactivate all SSIDs for the preferred master to reduce the load on that AP.

 

Thanks

With Instant, you'll need to use zones.

Re: Limit Single SSID to a Certain AP in Aruba Network

Did you create a new group with the Guest VAP only? Did you provision the AP with that AP Group afterwards? 

 

Could you please elaborate a bit more your query/question with more information so we can help you?

Re: Limit Single SSID to a Certain AP in Aruba Network

yes i did but the problem is i provision one AP with that AP group, that AP is now broadcasting only Guest SSID but still all AP are broadcasting that Guest SSID 

how can i stop all other AP to broadcast Guest SSID 

i need only one AP to broadcast Guest SSID, i have assigned all AP to Default AP group 

do i need to create again AP group and put all AP to that Group except That one particular AP

or ?

 

thanks.

Re: Limit Single SSID to a Certain AP in Aruba Network

So basically you have 2 AP-Groups :1 AP provisioned with AP-Group B (only Guest VAP) and the remaining APs with AP-Group A (some VAP's plus Guest VAP), right?

 

If you remove Guest VAP from AP-Group A, you will only broadcast Guest VAP on the AP provisioned with AP-Group B. 

 

If this is not clear, could you please let us know what VAP's you have under AP-Group A and B?

Re: Limit Single SSID to a Certain AP in Aruba Network

i need to delete or Remove that Guest SSID from Default AP-Group i guess , because i created New AP-Group and i put that particular AP to that AP-Group, 

now that AP is only broadcasting only that Guest SSID 

 

but when i go to Default-AP group i don't see either Remove or Delete that SSID from Default SSID 

any idea or i should create new AP-Group 

 

 

Thanks
