I just ordered my first two IAP 205 Aruba WAPs. From what I'm gathering I need to:
1. Plug it into the network and let it pull a DHCP.
2. Find that DHCP address in my DHCP lease list.
3. Access the GUI via the IP address and start configuring.
I don't undertand how I go about making the first WAP I configure the master or virtual controller?

The master election process is handled automatically, so you don't need to configure a "master" AP as such. So in the first instance just plug 1 IAP in and configure this accordingly, set the Virtual Controller IP on this AP. Once the first AP is configured you can plug in the second AP, the second AP will automatically located the first AP (elected master) in the broadcast domain and download the configuration.
When configuring the IAP, do you not even need to find the IP from your DHCP server, look for the broadcasting SSID and connect to this, it will either be "instant" or "setmeup" depending on the software version.
To configure the Virtual Controller IP address, access the GUI and go to System > General > Virtual Controller IP

We have an Aruba IAP 103 device setup for guest access using a splash page with Internal Acknowledged. We are running OS version 18.104.22.168_61877. We are seeing problems when users connect to the guest network. They are getting a "connection not private" when trying to connect with their browser (Google Chrome, Safari, etc.) When I remove the splash page everything works fine. This worked before and now it doesn't. This happens on Macbooks, iPhones, Android phones and many others. Any ideas?

The page you are seeing is because of the AP trying to redirect HTTPS traffic to facebook. This is expected, and is what your browser is doing. If you mention that it worked before, could it be that another site was used than Facebook on HTTPS? Or that it was long ago?
Please check this blog for more explanation.
This also explains why you only see the error when using splash pages/captive portal redirects. It violates more or less the way HTTPS was designed.

We have a small mesh network consisting of a pair of IAP-205:s. One of them is uplink, the other serves as a bridge to a wired device. I'm now planning to get a 205H and place it as uplink, so that we can a) move a couple more wired devices onto the same network and also b) use the freed-up 205 to extend the wireless network.
The question is, does it matter if the new 205H is an AP or an IAP? In other words, can we buy an AP-205H (JW116), have it join the instant controller and configure it as an uplink? Or do we need an IAP-205H (JW216)? I've been studying through the documentation and it seems to me like an AP would do the trick, however I wanted to check this before we buy.

203H is a unified platform and can work with IAP-205-US.
The correct one you want to order for them to talk to IAP-205-US is:
JY695A Aruba AP-203H (US) Flex-radio 802.11ac 2x2 Unified Hospitality AP with Internal Antennas
See that its country code is US.
Make sure you upgrade the whole cluster to latest 6.5.x code available, to support the UAP.

We use lots of the IAP-205RW's but for my next project I don't want to ceiling mount the access points. I've seen desk mounts for the IAP-205H. How does this hospitatlity access point compare again the IAP-205 in terms of signal, coverage etc. Are they omni/directional? They look smaller so I'm concerend they won't provide as good coverage.
Coverage of a desk mounted 205H should not be significantly different from a ceiling mounted 205, b...
Coverage of a desk mounted 205H should not be significantly different from a ceiling mounted 205, but it may depend on the environment in which the AP is placed (objects may cause more RF attenuation, etc.). The 205H (and 303H) have "slightly directional" antenna patterns, but I doubt that it will have a noticeable impact. RF performance numbers (transmit power, receiver sensitivity) are very similar.
Note that you may want to consider the 303H instead of the 205H. The 205H has been announced to go end of sale (by 5/1/2018), and the 303H is a lower cost and more capable replacement.
Also, if you're sure to use it in a desk mount scenario, we have the AP-303HR bundles, where the 303H comes with a pre-assembled and attached desk stand, a power adapter and AC cord.
There are two versions of this bundle. AP-303HR-US comes with the AP-303H-US and a North-American cord, while AP-303HR-EU contains the AP-303H-RW and a european power cord.

I am working on configuring two IAP-277s to bring our network to an isolated trailer. We currently have an IAP cluster up on VLAN 10 (10.0.100.0/24) that is broadcasting 2 SSIDs and operating the Bridge off of a hidden SSID. I am having some trouble with getting this all to work.
Here is what the setup looks like:
I followed a guide and have done the following:
-Add the mesh Access Point to the cluster.
-Turn off Extended SSID
-Select the IAP in the cluster and change the Uplink to Ethernet Bridging Enabled.
-Reboot the IAP cluster.
-Move the Mesh Point IAP to the remote location and power it up.
Unfortunately, my cluster loses the IAP after moving it. (It's not a distance issue as I have this setup in a lab)
I have a few questions:
1)Can I connect the IAP to a POE switch? Some articles that I read are stating that the Eth0/Uplink port cannot be active in order for the bridge to work.
2)Can I use my existing cluster and add a mesh portal/point to it? Or do I need to add a whole new VLAN to my network?
Any input would be appreciated. Thank you

Here is, kind of, the step-by-step I wrote after I figured out my setup:
Creating an Aruba IAP wireless bridge 1. Bring up the IAP as a normal member of the cluster 2. Static the IP and set a reservation 3. Create a WIRED INTERFACE NETWORK on the cluster: native vlan X trunk ALL 4. Assign the profile to port 0 on the cluster IAPs 5. ON THE CLUSTER Set Extended SSID to DISABLED 6. ***REBOOT THE CLUSTER IF YOU HAD TO DO STEP 3 and/or 5*** 7. On the mesh POINT set the Uplink values to VLAN X and BRIDGE ENABLED 8. Reboot the IAP in the current port. 9. After a full reboot, disconnect the IAP and power it up on the remote switch 10. On the POINT IAPs switch, set the PoE Profile “Upstream-TrunkPorts” to ENABLED(We use Aruba MAS switches, so this is more-or-less just setting the vlan to match the config on the IAP) 11. On the POINT IAPs switch, set the port (0/0/0) to the “Upstream-TrunkPorts-Group” group (We use Aruba MAS switches, so this is more-or-less just setting the vlans to match the config on the IAP)
I used TRUNK ALL for the initial setup to ensure I could get communication, then I went back and locked it down to the proper VLANS. Hope it can help.

i'm having issues with fixing transmit power for IAP-325.
AW is latest 8.2.5, firmware is 22.214.171.124
i've set manually to:
yet, actual transmit power is different (though channels are correct and not changing):
beforehand, IAP was managed as standalone and changing AP transmit power worked. Tried with older firmware, but the issue stays. i even set min TX power to 21 under ICG->system, but that haven't worked either
i can sync all other configs, names, descriptions, even change channels.
it's a single AP and i need a bit more "juice", as there's a client (sorf of ikiosk) that needs wifi access, but is pretty far away and sometimes loses connectivity

You should SSH into that IAP and run this commnd:
show ap allowed-max-EIRP
It will tell you the allowed maximum transmit power on each channel for that regulatory domain.
Hi, I've created an external Captive Portal with authicentaion via the VC...
I've created an external Captive Portal with authicentaion via the VCs internal username and password. The Captive Portal is running on a external hosted Windows 2012 server with IIS.
My issue is that when a users connects they get an SSL cert error, my android device is telling me that my default webpage (google) does not match my wireless.xxx.com cert. Other users are getting similar messages. If you can proceed then the login page comes up and works correctly. Aruba support has told me to load the same cert onto both the VC and the Windows server but since the certificate has the same name but with different IP addresses how does it work.
My question is, in this setup do I require two different named SSL certs (one for the VC and one for the IIS). I assume also that my captive portal html has to point the "login html" (securelogin.arubanetworks.com) back to the VC IP\hostname is this the case or is this re-directed back to the VC.
The internal portal works with no issues with the same cert (wireless.xxx.com)
AP are 207 with 126.96.36.199-188.8.131.52_57768
Thanks in advance

I've a Bose SoundTouch 20 and the speaker connects fine to the Wifi network, but I can't connect/find it in the App. If I connect the speaker via its ethernet port I can connect via the App over wifi. It seems to me the wifi is blocking something used in the discovery/communication mechanism between the App and the Speaker. I'm using 2 Aruba IAP 205 for the home wireless network. Is there a special setting I need to enable/disable to get it to work. I've got broadcast filtering disabled as suggested on another thread and I've updated to the latest firmware versions on the IAPs. Please help. Its a new toy and its most frustraiitng because I need to connect the speaker via the wifi not ethernet.

Based on some experimenting. I found that if I enable DLNA media and allowall, it works.These seem to be required for the app and speaker to communicate.
