I was wondering if this is possible here?
At least in other brands i install that helps a lot when you got corrupted images...
i was wondering if its possible to format both partitions and then upload the fimrware to the aruba controller and starting everything from zero...
It is possible? any got a procedure for this?
The other question
Where do you configure the DNS server the wireless controller its pointing? i would like it to point my internal DNS servers so it can resolve internal addresses... also putting the dns suffix....
i do can ping stuff like internet www.google.com but im unable to find where do you configure this dns...

Look into that option. But save your license keys first!!!!! The 650 has a PoE license that will be erased when you do a write erase all. Also, it is not a license that shows up on your Aruba licensing page.

To enable the controller to resolve addresses, enter the following CLI commands:
ip domain-name x.com
ip domain lookup
ip name-server x.x.x.x
This would only allow the controller to resolve addresses and wont affect the WLAN clients at all.
Is that what you were looking for?

This is possible, yes, from the CPBoot. It requires you have a TFPT server to pull the new image from.
It would be good to do this in concert with an SE, as if done incorrectly can lead to a bricked controller. It's not as strong as a 'zeroize' which is what you are looking for, but will result in the entire flash card being erased and re-partitioned.
If you still need the procedure, IM me here.

I recieved a Sup II card for a 6000 controller that was "wiped" The tech performed a Write-Erase-All command and now all we get when it runs up is the "cpboot>" prompt. I've run the "setup" command where it ask for the "AP Ip address" and the TFTP server address. I can even ping the tftp server. However I cannot ping the controller. And when I try to ping its own assigned ip address it doesnt work. When I try to run the "TFTPboot " command I can see the request on the server but it errors out. Obviously.
I see the "ethernet" command for ethernet sub-system configuration. What are the commands that enable that management port or for me to assign an ip address to that interface.

Hi Jerrod, I see your post and I think I need format the flash of my ARUBA 650 controller.
Please, you can send me the procedure to format and partition the flash to reinstall the firmware.
The image version of my AURBA 650 controller is:
"ArubaOS Version 184.108.40.206 (build 42618 / label #42618)"
