It would be awesome if the flexibility exist to load the Aruba OS onto a Virtual machine for training and deployment purposes.

I would like to know if in some future, there could be a chance to pursue Aruba Certification, by going the self study route?

I plan on studying for the ACMX test and really wished Aruba had a home lab kit for Aruba certified engineers.


I already have a instant AP and would like for Aruba to offer a VM controller/AirWave with a training limitation of 3 AP's and 10 devices that all tie to your certication #. Would be great of configuring policies, testing roaming performance, and configuring templates for instants AP's.

Training on "What is open source?"

I am VIA developer works on Mac and Windows OS (i.e. Love both Bill gates and Steve jobs).  I read code, take idea from open source projects.


While reading open source projects, I always confuse whether it is correct to take idea from open source project. Moreover there are many open source licenses, judiciary  laws, impact on close code systems and "what is correct definition of open source?".


Could you please arrange one comprehensive training over open source?


Thanks and Regards,

Anand Choubey

I reallly like this and thats how i sell when i have to but i need more practice and more good whiteboarding selling videos would be really nice :)

would be possible?   For now there is just one for BYOD which is GREAT! it would be nice having for IAP, CAMPUS WLAN, Airwaves, and you know all the products!

Certification and Training Forum

It would be great if Aruba can start a separate forum focused on people studying for Aruba Certifications.  This way everyone can discuss, collaborate, ask questions etc related to Aruba Training and Certs.

It will be good to have an ACDX renew exam (like ACMX renew exam).

I think that if we could link the accounts and be able to exchange the certifications (have the CWNP cert's saved on Aruba site) would be a good idea. Everything would be managed easier. Cisco and Microsoft do have that enabled on their sites.


Also, added CWNP badges as well.

Question regarding Guest design for IAPs.

In a controller environment, a hardened Ethernet port gets directed to a firewall port, or DMZ for guest traffic. Thus, physically separating the guest traffic from the corporate LAN.  But with IAP’s/ virtual controllers I don’t have that option.


How do I prevent guest traffic from hitting the LAN, other than using Firewall rules to prevent that specific destination? What’s the best approach?


Thanks Stefan
