Is there a quick-start guide for an Aruba 6000 controller?

I just received an Aruba 6000 controller and can't figure out how to get it to function. I was in the web interface earlier today, but I had to reset the controller. Basically, I reset the device and went through the CLI setup and setup the IP address as requested, but I can't get into the Web Interface by typing that address into Chrome. 

 

Some additional info:

ArubaOS Version 3.4.3.2

6000 Controller with a Supervisor Card and Line card

 

If anyone has any suggestions, I would be forever grateful. Please let me know if you need more info. Thanks in advance!

Thanks for your response and I apologize for my slow reply in return. I did manage to backup the licenses from the web interface before I reset it (oddly enough the controller retained the licenses after a reset). To reset the device, I was in the Web interface and went to either Management or Diagnostics (can't remember which one) and hit "Clear Config" on the left-hand side.

Thank you very much for the quick start guide. I will see if I can get the controller to work when I have access to it later.

 

Just as a side question, are the Supervisor cards permanantely licensed (AP-wise)? If I back up the licenses listed (AP license is not listed), will I still have the AP licenses?

 

Thank you again for all your help. I will post back and let you know if I can get into it and, if I can access it, I will mark your answer as correct.

I figured out the issue (finally!) and I feel rather dumb for not seeing it earlier: on the GBIC I was using, it says "GBIC exceeds maximum power specifications. Auto-negotiation must be disabled on host." and I completely ignored that. Now my controller is sitting happily in my rack and it's chugging right along.

 

Thanks for all your help!
