How would I go about setting up time-based bandwidth limiting for a guest WLAN? I already have the WLAN configured with a user-role with a bandwidth contract. I just need to be able to bump up the bandwidth during a certain time and cut it back down during another. I am aware of the "time-ranges" tab but I am unsure how to proceed.
I am running a 3400 controller with 126.96.36.199.
Thanks for your help!

I think in order to accomplish this you will need ClearPass to apply the policy based on the time and day.

The time ranges you can configure in ArubaOS can only be used in the Virtual-AP under the option "deny time range".
If you use a RADIUS server for MAC authentication or 802.1X you can create policies which will return different Aruba-User-Role attributes based on the current time. You also have to return a IETF - Session-Timeout attribute relative to the current time, you should return the amount of seconds until the time the bandwidth contract should change; this forces the client to reauthenticate so the user will fall into a new user-role.
You could also use RADIUS CoA to achieve this, changing the user-role of the connected clients at certain time.
