Pointing Aruba controller to external DNS

Greetings,

 

I have been tasked with changing the DNS on our Aruba Controller to an external DNS server.

 

Does anyone know where I would make this change on the controller?

 

Controller is in Los Angeles and external DNS server is in AZ.

 

Any help would be appreicated.

Hi.

I'am not sure if it will do it (And if i understand your question right)

But,If this is controller-based, you need to be running the latest ArubaOs 6.1.3.x and turn on DNS name resolution:

Via CLI:

config t

ip dns-server 8.8.8.8

 

 

-----------------------------------

Give it a try.

Re: Pointing Aruba controller to external DNS

Hi Kdisc - We are currently on 6.1.2.4. We had issues upgrading in the past and had to revert back to this version. Looks like there have been a few updates so I will probably revisit the update.

 

So this option is not available on 6.1.2.4?

 

Thanks!

Re: Pointing Aruba controller to external DNS

Just to clarify, are you trying to change the DNS your controller uses to look up records, or the DNS your wireless clients use?
