In a small school building we have AP-93 but that device can't cover all classrooms . Someone decided to buy few TL-WA850RE to extend range of WiFi. Unfortunately I was unable to find how to connect both devices based on documentation "Aruba Instant User Guide". I had to switch off "ARM" functionality in AP-93 because with this functionality TL-WA850RE could not connect to AP-93. Now it looks that TL-WA850RE can connect to AP-93 but any other client can not connect to AP-93 through TL-WA850RE.
Maybe I should switch off IDS on AP-93 ?
Could you please help me and suggest how to configure AP-93 with four TL-WA850RE ?

Try the following. If this is an Instant AP, edit the network, choose advanced on the first tab at the bottom, then under the heading of Broadcast/Multicast set the drop down for "Broadcast Filtering" to none (default is arp). If this is campus AP, then there is a similar option under the ssid profile.

Thank you for your suggestion.
I described your advices to our administrator but it looks that our aruba is configured as a campus AP our admin can't find such options.
Do we have any other possibility?

uhh, sorry, I told you to look in the wrong place in the case of campus AP, it's under the virtual ap profile (not the SSID profile).
Please see attached image to give you a hint.
You should only turn these filters off on the virtual AP that you are using the bridge device, otherwise you may allow too much junk from the LAN to be broadcast out to the WLAN.

does the end device get an ip address?
is the DHCP allocation correct at the client (dns, def gw, etc.)
does it appear in the usertable (show user) on the controller with that IP address / mac address ?
can it ping the default gateway ?
ping the def gw and collect "show datapath session table <ip of client>" -- do you see the traffic
