Upgraded 7200 controller to Aruba Os 8.0 and cant connect anymore

Hello, 

 

We purchased two Aruba 7205 controllers to use as Master-Backup in a client´s network. I have made a very short config and then upgraded the firmware to OS 8.0 and now when trying to access the default IP that wasn´t changed (172.16.0.254) I can´t connect to the controller. 

 

Does the OS changes the default IP? 

 When connecting through console port it stops in auto-provisioning waiting for dhcp and activate servers. If i try the mini-setup it asks me for master_switch MAC addreses and some information i dont have as this should be the master. 

 

2) I have read the release notes and found something I was not very clear. That mobility masters can´t handle APs directly. In this solution the client has 80 APs connected to the controllers on a VRRP config. No extra local controllers. This will not be possible anymore? 

 

Thanks!

AOS 8 is a major change in architecture. You should consider using 6.5 or
reach out to your Aruba SE for assistance with planning and deploying this
new architecture.

Switch to the other partition at the boot loader.
