Restore a configuration files on an Aruba controller

Hi,

 

I try to restore a configuration file on a controller using FTP, TFTP or SCP. Always the same errors, the controller can't copy the file or it is directly connected to the server.

 

Any idea.

 

Thankx guys

Re: Restore a configuration files on an Aruba controller

Restoring a configuration is a three step process:

 

- Copy the file to the controller

- Set the boot config to that file

- Reboot.

Hi,

 

I know this. I said that i have a problem with COPYING the file on the controller. The server (TFTP, FTP, SCP) is directly connected to the controller. However it doesn't copy it saying that there a problem of timeout!!!

 

Thankx

Ok.  Well we have to apply the rules of networking, then:

 

Can the controller and the SCP/TFTP server ping each other?

I hate to say it, but this is a networking issue.  If you do not have your client running or you have your firewall on your host/laptop it is not going to work.  If you have already established that the controller and the host can ping each other, it is a networking issue, NOT an Aruba issue...

It is strange. Because if it is really a network issue at this moment they can't ping each other !!! I looked for the firewall hosted in the server it is already stopped !!

 

Thank you anyway.

Re: Restore a configuration files on an Aruba controller

Have you ever used TFTP on that server before?  Can you use the "netstat -an" command on the server to see if there is traffic coming from the controller?

Yes i used this TFTP server Before. No there are no TFTP traffic coming from the controller. Does it may depend of the firewall on the controller it self?

 

Thankx

Re: Restore a configuration files on an Aruba controller

By default there is no firewall stopping traffic to and from the controller.

 

Is the server and the controller on the same subnet?  Is there a device that could be blocking the traffic between them?
