Enabling control plane security

Currently I have an Aruba 3200 (non XM) that tunnels all WLAN traffic to the controller.  I want to switch to bridge forwarding.  I need control plane security enabled and for the APs to re-join and get accepted by the controller for bridge forwarding correct?  I will enable auto-cert provisioning so that any AP that contacts my controller will be accepted. 

 

If I need to enable control plane security I should plan for downtime, correct?  If so, any idea how long the whole process should take? Just one 3200 and 18 AP-105s in this network.

 

Thanks

You should plan for a downtime for 30-45 minutes because APs need to reboot after you enabled CPSec, it may take less then that but just in case..

Re: Enabling control plane security

This is based on an M3 controller but this gives you an idea:
