On an Aruba 8.2 controller the power is reflected as Transmit EIRP (dBm) .
How do I convert this value to "MW out power" for a AP-305. The actual goal is to get 25mW of out power.
Thanks for the info!

The answer from Herman in that topic should conclusive. The values you see in ArubaOS are EIRP; this means antenna gain is accounted for; in other words: this is the value after antenna gain.
For AP's with internal antennas ArubaOS already knows the antenna gain, but when working with external antennas you will have to configure the antenna gain during AP provisioning. This way, ArubaOS can calculate the correct EIRP so local regulations can be met.
If you want to know the actual TX-power on the radio side of the AP you can look at CLI commands like: "show ap debug power-table ap-name <AP> radio <0 or 1>"
Hi, I'm a newbie. How do you add an SSID to an AP?

The smallest unit of an SSID is a Virtual AP profile. To add an SSID to an AP or a group of APs, you need to figure out which AP group you want to add the SSID to. When you find out, go to Configuration> Wireless> AP Configuration. Click on the AP group that you want to add the SSID to. Click on Wireless LAN. Click on Virtual AP. In the right pane, select the Virtual AP Profile (SSID) that you want to add, then click on Add. Click on the Apply button in the lower right hand corner.
Click on Save Configuration to make it permanent.
On the Monitoring Tab, click on WLAN to see all of the access points that your SSID is on.

My controller connects to the rest of the internal network via an access port - one vlan. I've got VIA working fine assigning remote clients an IP address on that VLAN.
But I'd like to create a new subnet for VIA clients and NAT them to the internal network. What settings need to change to make this happen?

Is it not needed (nor advised) to give your VIA clients IP addresses in a real subnet connected to the controller. In most cases it is better to configure your VIA users pool with an address range that only exists on the controller, and for which you have a route in your network to the controller.
That avoids the need to use NAT, which can introduce other complexity.
This topic is covered in the VIA AppNote that is available here. Start reading on page 17, Address Pools, for this specific topic including some references to other documents.

We have ClearPass on the roadmap down the road but I would like to implement just simple Mac authentication for our wireless network. I found an article, though it's for Meraki, that details the steps on setting up NPS for Mac Authentication, but I am running into trouble with it working in our environment.
What I would like to do is have our SSID password protected, and then once the password is correctly entered it will check for the Mac Address against the NPS server. running
#aaa test-server mschapv2 SERVER MACADDR MACADDR
from the cli returns Authentication Successful, but I am still not able to authenticate the machine when connecting.
Is what I am trying to accomplish possible?

after searching the forums several times without finding something regarding my problem, I guess I need to start a new topic for this:
After switching back and forth between different AOS versions (8.1, 8.0, 6.5 and 6.4) on my lab controllers, I am unable to connect to them using https or ssh after boot. The browser is not showing any certificate for the controllers ip address.
After issuing the command "restore factory_default certificate" https and ssh work again, as long as the controllers are powered on. After next restart I need to execute the command over serial again in order to get https and ssh access to the controllers.
The last thing I tried in order to solve the problem was wiping the flash without any success.
I appreciate any help with the issue

I feel sorry, as I need to correct myself. I don't know why I was thinking that, but ssh is working in fact. Same with https. It is just not working with Firefox and Edge, but with Chrome. The error message is something like "Can’t connect securely to this page" in all of the browsers, with the exception that Chrome lets me accept that. It seems related to the revocation of the GeoTrust certificate.
What irritates me is, as soon as I execute the restore default certificates command Firefox will let me connect until restart.
But this is clearly an browser/certificate related problem and not AOS related. Shame on me.

I'm in the planning stages of swapping out 3 x EnGenius AP units for 3 x Aruba IAP units. The 3 models I'm looking at are the IAP-207, IAP-305, and the IAP-315.
1. What are the compared coverage areas or signals strengths for these 3 units?
2. What are the End-Of-Life (EOL) dates for these 3 units? Or, when were they made available for purchase?
3. Where can I find a detailed product comparison of these 3 units?
I will be purchasing 3 of one of the selected models this week, to be installed in a modern, single story, office building(steel beam, concrete, drywall), for about 20-30 connected devices at most.

ithout streaming or other high-throughput applications, and with the limited number of client devices you'll have, you should be ok with the IAP-207, but the IAP-305 delivers far better value in terms of performance for throughput and density.

Hello! I have an AP 215 that is always rebooting. On the controler, I can see that is in "upgrading" state. All my others APs are OK. Only this one. I tried factory_reset, clear os, clear all, purgeenv... I did the reset with paperclip. Nothing works.

we recently migrated one building on our campus from AP-135 to AP-225s.
Our old Acer laptops with Broadcom BCM43225 chipsets do not have any problems using the new APs. However, our newer Lenovo ThinkPad T430s have major issues with bad response times, packet loss and intermittent dropouts. The Lenovos use the Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 chipset.
I found an article in the Cisco support forums that people are experiencing this issue on Cisco WLAN infrastructure as well:
The workaround - aside from a possible driver update on the laptops - is to disable Infrastructure MFP (Management Frame Protection) on the WLC.
Is there an equivalent workaround on Aruba as well?
Thanks for your help!

HI Colin, just thought I would let you know I have solved this. In another thread concerning this NIC you advised turning off “Advertise 802.11K Capability” on the 802.11K profile. Not the same issue but a small resembalance. In response to this the other person said they had read somewhere that older Intel NIC's do sometimes have an issue with 802.11K. So I disabled it and now all is fine.

I've configured a mesh network with Aruba Controller 7030.
My question is: How can I configured a mesh network among three Access Points.?
The first one should be Mesh Portal, because it is connected to the switch, but what about the others access points, because these one just has AC cables.
Thanks in advance.

They should be provisioned as mesh points, if they will not be connected to the network via ethernet. Provision them and reboot.

We recently had an increase of Aruba Via usage. The 20 IP addresses from the VIA pool are no longer enough. I have created a second VIA pool, however the addresses are a different block than the first VIA pool. Example:
VIA pool1 = 192.168.50.1-192.168.50.20
VIA pool2 = 192.168.50.50-192.168.50.60
The user role for VIA however only lets me assign 1 L2tp pool in the GUI. Is it somehow possible to assisng 2 pools? Perhaps through CLI?

Unfortunately, the user is only assigned the pool in the role. If you are source-natting traffic or there is a route in your network pointing to the controller for that subnet, you can certainly make it any ip subnet you want and expand it.
