AP 325 LACP support with Bridge SSID

[ Edited ]

HI,

 

Does LACP suppport for Bridge SSID @ branch location.

Aruba 7200 Controller is in Datacenter & configured Tunnel & Bridge SSID in one of the branch. AP 325 is @ branch no local controller is used in branch.

Need to implement LACP for both tunnel & bridge SSID.

Tunnel SSID work perfect, but Bridge SSID is not working.

Re: AP 325 LACP support with Bridge SSID

Hi Sangram,

 

1. How many controllers do you have in the setup?

2. Is the bridge SSID working without LACP ?

3. Please  elaborate on the issue that is seen with bridge SSID when AP LACP is enabled.

 

Is the issue seen with for clients connecting 2.4 or 5 Ghz ?

Hi Nitesh,

 

Please find below reply.

 

1. How many controllers do you have in the setup?

-- only one  Controller

2. Is the bridge SSID working without LACP ?

-- Yes Brigde SSID work without LACP

3. Please  elaborate on the issue that is seen with bridge SSID when AP LACP is enabled.

--When AP LACP GRE stripping is configured bridge mode SSIDs will stop working. If we have one tunnel SSID and one bridge SSID, tunnel works fine and bridge clients will get affected.

 

Is the issue seen with for clients connecting 2.4 or 5 Ghz ?

Both client has issue.

Hi Sangram,

 

I tested with AP-325  running on 6.5.0.4 & did not encounter any issues with the bridge SSID.

AP was running in LACP mode.

 

 Files attached.

 

Please share the LACP config/port config & firmware version that you are running on the network.

Hi, Nitesh,

Thanks for quick reply.
Actually we need to brodcast both bridge SSID and tunnel SSID on same AP.
Please confirm whether LACP is possible with both.

What is the firmware version running on your controller ?

What is the exact issue seen for the client device ?

 

Is client connecting to open/PSK or 802.1x SSID ?

Is the issue observed at layer 2 (authentication related) or Layer 3 (DHCP/traffic) ?

Re: AP 325 LACP support with Bridge SSID

Hi Sangram:

 

We need the following configuration on the controller. I am just pasting the relevant config (dummy IP's).

 

ap-lacp-striping-ip
aplacp-enable
striping-ip 1.1.1.2 lms 1.1.1.1
!

ap system-profile "default"
lms-ip 1.1.1.1
!

 

Note: LMS IP in the LACP profile needs to match the LMS IP listed in the AP system profile

 

On the switch side where the AP is connected, LACP ports need to be in active mode.

 

if LACP is enabled, AP will show s flag in the ap database output.

Re: AP 325 LACP support with Bridge SSID

Hi Nitesh,

 

I will do the same configuration & update you.

 

We have around 100 live aruba 100, 200 series APs which broadcasting bridge & tunnel SSID. AP 325 is going to be live in new enviroment with LACP configuration. Please help to clarify below queries.

 

1.does it affect existing AP profiles or configuration which does not support LACP, if we change the configuration for perticular AP profile. 

2. can multiple AP profile with LACP & without LACP work in same scenario.

3. while doing this changes any reboot or any distrubance will accour?

 

while doing this below configuration existing live setup should not hamper. please confirm

Re: AP 325 LACP support with Bridge SSID

Hi Sangram,

 

LACP does not apply to 100 series AP.

 

If AP is not connected to LACP enabled ports, they will not form LACP & continue to function properly.

 

I will still suggest to put few 325's on different AP-group for testing.
