Bridge mode not avaliable on VMC (VMware) Web Interface

Hello,

 

I´m trying to understand why fordward-mode bridge is not avaliable on the web interface (blank). At the CLI is working perfectly.

 

wlan ssid-profile "01"
    essid "01"
    opmode wpa2-aes

 

wlan virtual-ap "01"
    aaa-profile "01"
    vlan 2972
    forward-mode bridge
    ssid-profile "01"

 

Also, there are SSIDs on CLI that are no present on Web interface.

I deployed a new VM and got the same issue.

Re: Bridge mode not avaliable on VMC (VMware) Web Interface

Bridge SSIDs are deprecated on controllers and can only be configured through CLI for backward compatibility reasons.

This is a capture from a 8.2.1.0 VMC that shows bridge mode available through web GUI.

gvala,

 

Did you change anythging on VMC that would have changed this behavior?

 

I have installed 3 time (including PoCs) and got the same issue. No bridge mode. Just on CLI.

Just upgraded from 8.2.0.2. Nothing else.

This option shows up when i tried to edit the WLAN. The drop down menu has four options: Tunneled, unencrypted tunnel, bridged and split-tunnel.

I don't know what happens if i try to create a new WLAN because in this case I get a message that says that a PEF license is needed to add a WLAN

I´ve just upgraded the VMC.

 

Creating a WLAN requires a PEF license. Please verify that PEF license is installed and active

 

Is PEF license required for creating WLAN? Is thar right?

 

I thought LIC-AP would be enough.

Hi Herman,

I hadn't heard of that so went to chec some release notes.

 

From the AOS 8.2.1.0 RN: 

"Support for WLAN Forwarding Mode Options
Starting from ArubaOS 8.2.1.0, new options, Split-Tunnel and Bridge, are added to the Forwarding mode drop-down list in the WLANs > General
page."

 

Can I conclude that bridge will still be supported going forward?  Or are we talking about something different here?

Could you check and comment please?
