Forcing a client to a specific AP

I have an Aruba AP 224 with an ANT-16 antenna on it.  This area is a large open Gym space at our College.  To test, I would like to force specific clients to this new 224 AP.  It is likely the clients will connect to the wrong AP by default.  My question is:

 

Is it possible to force specific clients to this specific AP224 temporarily?

If it is possible, how do you do this via command line, and how do you do it via the controller GUI? 

 

Thank you for any assistance you can provide Airheads Community!

Re: Forcing a client to a specific AP

You have two options :
- configure an AP specific with new SSID
- configure a new ap-group with the new SSID

This can be done via GUI or CLI

Re: Forcing a client to a specific AP

Thank you for the response, so there is no easy way in the existing SSID setup to get a client "stuck" to a specific AP?

Back in the day some windows intel drivers used to allow to point the wireless client to connect to an specific BSSID, not sure if that option still exist
