Backup profiles

LEt say i got a Aruba 620 Controller

I get an Aruba 650 Controller

 

I want that the new Aruba be the master in this master-local scenario

 

Right now the 620 controller is the master

the 650 got no config its on factory default

 

There is a way to backup and restore  just the profiles  and i manually configure the part of the networking so i dont have ton configure the profiles i the new Wireless controller?

 

As i wont be able to backup and upload the full config.

 

Does anyone know a way to do it otherway besides manually configuring all the thing in the new aruba manually?

Re: Backup profiles

You could make the 650 a backup master first. That way it gets the config from the 620. Once you are satisfied that everything has synchronized properly, you could then make the 620 a local to the 650.

 

That's probably what I would do.

Re: Backup profiles

Following are the steps to achieve the swap 

 

1. Create a VRRP instance between 620 and 650 with 620 being the master 

On 620 controller 

vrrp <vrid> 

priority 255 -> this will make sure that this is the master always 

ip address <vrrp ip address> 

vlan <vlan id> 

no shut 

 

On 650 controller 

The same commands as above but do not enter the command to set the priority 

Default priority is set to 100

 

2. Configure master-redundancy between the two controllers 620 - master / 650 - standby

On both controllers 

 

On both controllers 

master-redundancy

     master-vrrp <vrrp id>

     peer-ip-address <peer-ip> ipsec <ipsec-key>

 

 

 

3. Configure database synchronize and set the period to 1 minute, so that it syncs the database every 1 minute.

database synchronize period 1 

 

4. Also, sysnchronize the rf-data-plan if you have one 

database synchronize rf-plan-data 

 

Once the Sync is complete, check the databases on 650 controller to make sure it has all the information. 

 

After confirmation, 

5. Remove master-redundancy 

6. Remove VRRP 

7. Configure master-ip on the 620 controller and point it to the IP address of 650 controller 

8. Configure local-ip on the 650 controller and point it to the IP address of 620 controller.
