Zero touch configuration works on Remote APS not on campus APS.
Basically you configure the RAP configuration ont he controller.
Now on the remote site you can even SEND the AP withotu configuring to the remote site.
On the remote site you just need to connect the AP and if you previusly configured aruba activate with the correct provisioning rule you have to do NOTHING just connecting it, and he willl look for the aruba activate service download the config of who is the wireless controller, after that the AP will look to the wireless controller and automatically will download the firmware and the config without you touching anything... thats why its called zero tocuh.
If you using RAP2 APs then well you will need to manually set the wireless controller AP but after you do that he will download his firwmare and the config.
I dont know if you need more info about it?
Aruba activate also works with Instant APS, but then you will need an Airwave so he can send a configuration template config.

I was more interested in the 600 controller itself being zero-touch. Here is a line from the Aruba product page for the 600 controller
"Aruba’s centralized zero-touch provisioning and management model enables 600 series Mobility Controllers to be locally deployed, monitored and managed with no IT assistance."
It makes it seem like you can get an Aruba controller up and running right out the box. I have done plenty of config on our m3 controllors, I just was curious what they were talking about with this marketing line.
