IAP-345 USB-to-MicroB Console Cable

Apologies if this has been answered before, but I'm at a bit of a loss on finding a functional USB to MicroB console cable for the new IAP-345.  

I've tried two vendors standard cables, neither of which functioned correctly.  

I found the AP-CBL-SERU article which indicates that a different pin order was used. The document found indicated that Arubas (orange) console cable is using Red/Black/Green/White USB-A to Micro-B. 

 

However, Industry standard looks to be Red/White/Green/Black.

 

Does anyone know where I can acquire this console cable?  I've got staging vendors I'm trying to make sure are outfitted to provision/t-shoot these APs but it doesn't really matter unless I can find a console cable that works.

Any leads appreciated!

The console port on the AP-345 (and most other indoor Aruba AP platforms) is NOT industry standard.

To use the interface you'll need the custom/proprietary Aruba console cable AP-CBL-SERU (JY728A).

Thank you for confirming that!

 

When I look up that part number and all I find is a USB-MicroB cable that feeds into an automotive power adapter looking thing.

I've been leery of purchasing that cable due to the fact that I can't find what looks like a "normal" usb console cable.  If this is the correct one, I'll get it ordered.

That's definitely not a picture of the part number I just shared. Where did you find that one?

Amazon of all places!  I've already reported the image as incorrect. 

 

Luckily a fellow cable seeker posted the correct picture in a comment (aruba orange as described).

It's great to hear that the cable can be obtained on Amazon, but I hope they indeed ship the correct orange cable..

The same image is featured on numerous other vendors websites.

Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/JY728A-Aruba-Micro-USB-Console-Adapter/dp/B071YNFZBG 

 

Lead times with HPE are just too long for me to wait for a single cable as I have imminent projects with my 345s so I sourced from somewhere else.

 

Additonally, HPE could really benefit with putting a picture of the cable on their own pages.
