Turn off built in AP on 651 controller

Hi All,

 

Quick question. Is it possible to turn off the built in AP on a 651 controller?

 

This is for licensing purposes.

 

Thanks

James

Cheers
James

Re: Turn off built in AP on 651 controller

Yes. It is possible to turn off the build in AP on the 651 controller. You can find the instructions in 6.1.3.4 Release Notes and I have pasted the same below:
In the CLI
1. Create a dot11g radio profile and disable the radio
(Aruba651) #configure terminal
(Aruba651) (config) # rf dot11g-radio-profile disable-radio
(Aruba651) (802.11g radio profile "disable-radio") #no radio-enable
(Aruba651) (802.11g radio profile "disable-radio") #exit
2. Apply the radio profile to a specific AP.
(Aruba651) (config) #ap-name <ap-name>
(Aruba651) (AP name "<ap-name>") #dot11g-radio-profile disable-radio
(Aruba651) (AP name "<ap-name>") #end

3. Save the configuration
(Aruba651) #write memory

Thanks for the info! 


I've does this but the built in AP is still using an AP and PEF license.

Internal AP of 651 controller is always licensed i.e. even when you do not have any AP count licenses installed on the controller. 

 

This license cannot be freed to be used for a campus AP. Hope that answers your quesiton.
