Hello, all, I've just started at a company in China and I'm trying to help fix our horrendous wireless. The trouble is the exisitng IT department has no idea which APs are named what. No they're not labeled. Is there any way for me to use ArubaOS 6.x on an Aruba 3400 with Aruba 93 APs to determine each AP's name.
For instance, in the webgui am I able to select "ap1" and send a signal that will turn all the LEDs red or something just for identifying?

If you have a smartphone app like wifianalyzer, it will tell you the bssid, but not the AP-name that you are seeing the signal strength of. To show the AP that you are standing under do this:
(host) # show ap bss-table | include 00:1a:1e:20:82:e2 00:1a:1e:20:82:e2 Guest 1/3 192.168.1.251 g-HT ap 11/20.5/20.5 0 AP125 0 1d:4h:17m:11s 1500 - 65 T
The AP name connected to that bssid is "AP125". You can just put the last 4 digits of the mac address with a colon between them (case sensitive) and it will give you the same output.
