Yes, we do have out-of-band management interface to access Aruba Mobility access switches, Out-of-band management involves the use of a dedicated management channel for device maintenance.
The management interface is located above the console port on the rear panel of the Mobility Access Switch. We can configure only the IP address and description for this interface. The management port can be used to access the Mobility Access Switch from any location and configure the system.
We can configure the management port only using the CLI.
