What is Auto device Config on MAS and how to configure it?





This article is applicable from 7.4.0 and above 




Auto Device detection and Configuration dynamically configure ports based on the type of device detected on the port.




When the MAS detects a new device on a port, it will apply appropriate configuration based on the predefined configuration for that device type. 




Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) is used to detect devices.










Enable  Auto device Config




(ArubaS1500-24P) (config) #device-group ap


(ArubaS1500-24P) (device-group access-point) #enable






Configure device-group based config 




show device-group-config <device-type>




(ArubaS1500-24P) #show device-group-config ap




device-group access-point (N/A)

The way device-group works is that, once an aruba ap is detected on an interface via lldp; configuration of the interface will be overwritten by what is specified in deivce-group, so lets say initially the interface-config was switch-profile xyz and pvst-profile abc however in device-group there is switching-profile u and pvst-profile w till a device is connected to the interface which is not an aruba ap, the interface config is valid on that once ap is detected, the interface config gets overwritten




Note: Currently supported only for Aruba AP/IAP that can send Aruba’s Proprietary LLDP TLV
