AP local DHCP address

We have remote access points located at many sites, they are working fine. However the problem we have is that 2 APs got installed without anyone making a note of their location.

I am trying to get the local IP address given by the local DHCP server on that site, this way I can see it is plugged in to subnet 192.168.xxx.xxx this then telling which site it is plugged in to.

Anybody know how to do this, I can't see this option anywhere...

Local DHCP Server Address Obtained

Use "show datapath session ap-name ". There will be two entries that are private addresses over UDP 4500 to the public address of the controller. That is the private address of the AP:

(m3.arubanetworks.com) #  show datapath session ap-name hroberts-rap5

10.69.17.235 10.69.17.255 17 137 137 0 0 0 0 dev7 18 FC


In the example the ip address of the AP is 192.168.1.246.
