I am new to Aruba please be kind :). I have an existing Dell W-AP225 (Dell PowerConnect W-ArubaOS Controller Software) as a Virtual controller for 2 existing Dell AP with Aruba OS. The firmware is 188.8.131.52-184.108.40.206_41049.
And I have an Aruba IAP 220 with firmware 220.127.116.11-18.104.22.168_50009 to join the mesh.
My questions are;
1. Is Dell W-AP series compatible with Aruba IAP?
2. I understand that in order for Aruba IAP to join a mesh, the firmware needs to match. Should I downgrade the Aruba IAP or upgrade the Dell?
3. Where do one go to download these firmwares?
Thank you very much in advance.

1. It is not.
2. You should not run those two devices together.
3. Please read#2

I am guessing from your reply, Aruba IAP 225 will not join the mesh with Dell W-AP225 Virtual Controller?
If this is the case then there will be 2 mesh (1 with Dell Virtual controller and 1 with the new Aruba IAP) on the same wireless LAN, and the same broadcast domain for management IP.
Is this OK?
