ArubaOS 8 virtual - minimum topology

What is the minimum topology size to get started terminating APs with ArubaOS 8 with purely virtual devices?

 

Is a MM required? Can it operate by itself and terminate APs?

 

Or can we just use a VMC by itself?

Re: ArubaOS 8 virtual - minimum topology

MM isn't a VMC or MC.

In other words a MM doesn't terminate AP's if I am not wrong.

You will need also a VMC if you want to stick to virtual devices.

May I ask why?

Can a VMC operate by itself or do we need a MM too?

Its for an internal lab, so we'd like to keep it 100% virtual if possible.

Just a VMC is the minimum I believe.

MM can't terminate APs.

I think you will need the mm to test stuff like Airmatch

VMC can run standalone, but you will not get clustering, airmatch, or any other 8.0 MM specific features. To support the advanced 8.0 featureset, you will need a Mobility Master.
