...: snippet from the Aruba Instant 126.96.36.199-188.8.131.52 User Guide: "To facilitate zero-touch provisioning...
You're referring to DHCP configuration on an Aruba controller (or switch, not sure). The DHCP server is a Windows server, so that's not really relevant. I got the DHCP options example from the Aruba doc DeployingInstantInAirWave.pdf (version 8.2).
But anyway, the guy who configured the DHCP server got it right apparently, as the IAP is accepting the DHCP options (see console output) and the IAP connects to the AirWave, only the AirWave is not accepting the PSK for some reason, so it puts the IAP in the New Devices (default) folder. So, yeah...
On DHCP option 42: snippet from the Aruba Instant 184.108.40.206-220.127.116.11 User Guide:
"To facilitate zero-touch provisioning using the AirWave Management Platform (AMP), Central, or Activate, you must configure the firewall and wired infrastructure to either allow the NTP trafficto pool.ntp.org, or provide alternative NTP servers under DHCP options."
If it's not necessary, it shouldn't say "must configure".
As the locations where the IAP's will be rolled out have no internet access, I used the DHCP option 42 to provide the NTP server info.
Opened a support case in the meanwhile, the engineer on the phone told me the very first IAP connecting to AirWave has to be put into a group manually, probably to get the PSK into the AirWave database/configuration/whatever. He saw the same issue at another customer. After that, AirWave should accept all following IAPs.
I'm going to test that right now.
...enable the override "Allow Configuration Of Country Code" in the Instant Config gui in AirWave to...
Ok, while waiting for TAC, I found the solution :P
The country-code was missing. Needed to enable the override "Allow Configuration Of Country Code" in the Instant Config gui in AirWave to get it pushed to the IAP.
SSID's are broadcasting, hooray! :D
...issue: although the Instant APs get the configuration from AirWave (checked it on the console on...
Proceeding with TAC: I'm on it.
Posted it on here just to share info and maybe I was missing something obvious
Anyway, the (partial) solution is to put the initial IAP into a group, to accept the PSK being used. Now other factory default IAP's are put in the correct group.
Next issue: although the Instant APs get the configuration from AirWave (checked it on the console on the AP), the radios do not come up (LED stays off, no SSIDs are being broadcasted). I've put an IAP in the same group in AirWave manually yesterday, and that worked just fine...
No idea why it isn't doing what the config says it should be doing... :S
Your syntax is wrong.
There is no option 42.
...activate subscritpion we could do zero touch provision but in case of third party vendor. plug and play...
Few third party devices have managment support aswell in Airwave. In Aruba case, if we have activate subscritpion we could do zero touch provision but in case of third party vendor. plug and play does not work, either you have to add the devices manually or CSV or using discovery method.
Default device will be discovered in new device list in Airwave, since you want to push the configuration automatically, we could enable automatic authorization in airwave and set proper folder/group where we have global configuration template.
Once switch get discovered automatically swtich move to respective group/folder and the configuration will get pushed.
Note: We need to make sure device will added in manage mode only so that conifguration will get pushed.
In AMP Setup > General page, we have automatic authoriziation section where we need to enable below settings

Thank you for the response.
I have viewed the document you have provided, but the question is, can you zero-touch provision a different switch from Aruba's? Plug & play functionality. I didn't find such information in the document, could you help me understand if I am correct?
"Third-Party Vendor Devices
AirWave provides basic monitoring and, in some cases, management of the third-party vendor devices listed below. The following section describes the features, and provides the list of supported devices and firmware versions"

Zero-Touch configuration using Aruba Activate and AirWave is not supported on the RAP-2 or RAP-5. It is supported on all IAPs and the new RAPs (RAP-3, RAP-10x, RAP-155).
For the RAP-2 and RAP-5 either you pre-provision them or the end-user has to connect via wire and input the IP address of the controller to receive its' config.

Customer replied back today.
they got a second IAP added to Activate and did the test again. It is working as planned, the provisioning on the second IAP is done automatically. Customer is happy.
There must have been made a mistake when adding the second IAP manually to Airwave.
Thanks for your support Colin. Some new experience with Airwave achieved.
.... Authorize Aruba IAPs connecting to Airwave is set to All. 1st VC is accepted, IGC config is...
Activate is working, that is correct.
I'm not using a whitelist. Shared Secret is set. Authorize Aruba IAPs connecting to Airwave is set to All.
1st VC is accepted, IGC config is set. Second IAP is added manually (by the customer) because it wasn't known in Activate and the Cloud Activation Key didn't appear.
I have been trying to similate the above with my own setup. I have no access to Activate so I used DHCP option 43 and 60 to automate the provisioning. For me it's working as expected; the 2nd and 3th VC's are added automatically. I assume that using DHCP will be te same as using Activate. Pass on the group, Airwave IP and shared secret.
Even adding an IAP manually to Airwave is working without me doing anything in AIrwave.
I will go back to the customer informing him that a mistake must have been made somewhere in the setup or the thinking progress and that the process is working as has been sold.
I will get back to this when I receive a reply.

The access points are showing up in Airwave, so Activate is working right.
What are your settings in Airwave? Are you using a Whitelist, like the documentation recommends, or are you using another method to authorize the IAPs? Do you already have a single IAP already in your group with a config already in IGC (instant GUI config)?
