Virtual Mobility Controller?

Hi All,

 

Whilst grabbing a few eval licenses for my lab in preparation for my ACCX exam I noticed an option for "Virtual Mobility Controller".. See below.

Have I missed out on some news or something?

 

Cheers

James

The new AOS 8 architecture uses a virtualized services controller. This was
demoed at ATM16.

Thanks both. I wasn't aware. Haven't seen any ATM16 stuff yet but I'm going to the EMEA event so will catch up then!

Note as well that right now, with VMC, we only support VPN and VIA for specific US Dept of Defense applications.

Re: Virtual Mobility Controller?

Where can I download the VMC? I only see the MM-ova under ArubaOS 8 downloads.

Re: Virtual Mobility Controller?

An Ova is a VMWARE Virtual Machine.  Is that what you are talking about?

Re: Virtual Mobility Controller?

The ova is the Virtual Mobility Controller (mobility master) download.  Access Points cannot be terminated on the Virtual Mobility controller, however...

Re: Virtual Mobility Controller?

If they are the same, then why are there 2 installation guides:

VMC:

https://support.arubanetworks.com/Documentation/tabid/77/DMXModule/512/Command/Core_Download/Default.aspx?EntryId=22494

VMM:

https://support.arubanetworks.com/Documentation/tabid/77/DMXModule/512/Command/Core_Download/Default.aspx?EntryId=22495

 

If you skip to the add license section in both of the manuals you can see a difference where the VMC has a serial number and de VMM has not.

 

My deployed ova looks the example in the VMM manual and doesn't have a serial number. Can I generate a serial number somehow?

 

And will it be possible to terminate ap's in the future? Maybe just a few for a lab/learning environment.
