Cloud activation key for Aruba OS switches

Aruba Employee
Q:

How can we find the cloud activation key for Aruba switches?



A:

We can use the following command to find the cloud activation key :

 

Aruba# show activate provision

 

 Configuration and Status - Activate Provision Service

 Activate Provision Service   : Enabled

  Activate Server Address      : device.arubanetworks.com

  Activation Key               : LKMNOPAB

 

The above command applies to the following switches:

 

Aruba 2920 Switch Series—WB.16.02.0012 or later

Aruba 2930F Switch Series—WC.16.02.0012 or later

Aruba 2540 Switch Series—YC.16.02.0012 or later

Guys, any idea about why activation key is missing on the switch and how can I get it? I'm trying to register a 2930F to Central but the switch doesn't have the Activation Key. See command output below:

 

w2930F-8G_# show activate provision

Configuration and Status - Activate Provision Service

Activate Provision Service : Enabled
Activate Server Address : device.arubanetworks.com
Activation Key : Not Available
sw2930F-8G_#

Hi Ivonne,

 

Show activate provision shows activation key in the switch only when it  has successfully contacted activate

 

Please provide me the following information:

 

1. Is the clock reflecting correct time on the switch ?

2. Do you have DNS server configured on the switch ?

3. What is the firmware running on the switch ?

4. Attach the output for :

 

show log -r

I 12/18/17 15:31:14 05226 activate: Successfully resolved the Activate server address device.arubanetworks.com to 104.36.249.201.
