I just purchased a 303H I'm trying to configure it for a remote access point. When I connect it to our internal lan I'm able to get the SSID setmeup, but when I connect to our external lab internet and at home to my personal cable internet I can't get the access point to broadcast the SSID setmeup to configure it. My work internal network does not route to our DMZ firewall where my NAT is for my remote access point controller normally I configure RAPs using our lab internet at work which uses's a cable provider. I took the rap home and tried it on my home network still it won't broadcast anything. I did check my home router and I see it picks up a DHCP address. Another issue is the console port I tried a USB mini adaptor but my PC keeps saying it's an unknown driver. The driver provided for USB on the Aruba tools folder is from windows 2000/xp. Were using windows 10. Any ideas on how to get this AP to configure, or how to console into it.
i have two 7210 controller in modus HA (Master, Master) with Aruba OS 184.108.40.206, and a couple of AP connected over Layer 3. The Problem ist, when the connection between AP and the LMS controller ist interrupted for a couple of second, the AP do not make a reboot (after "Bootstrap threshold"), rather somtimes a couple of hours. The state from the AP in this moment is "Down", but from the controller i can "ping" the IP Address from the AP. It look like der AP active ist, but vor the contrller is down.
Any help or suggestion will be appreciated.

no, not jet, but i have the same problem with more AP. Some AP are active again (alone) after one hour, some AP after two, and some after four or more time. For all AP the "bootstrap threshold" is the same value "8".
Hier, the result from the command from the LMS primary (10.250.123.31) controller:

It's OK, when the "switch IP" for a AP ist nicht the same at both controller?
Before i started working for my current employer, they had contracted installation of AP-225's district wide, and I've seen several access points that weren't running at gigabit that I still have to troubleshoot - my guess is the cabling termination is faulty. (that's 2 access points in a building with 146). I've seen this issue in a few other locations and
It would be exceedingly handy if there were a method that would allow for a wild card that would display the port speed for all of the access points connected to a controller.
Searching has netted me a database extration script that I can't run because of the version of airwave deployed.
Both CLI commands I've seen require unique AP identification - ap-name, or otherwise ("show ap debug" and "show ap port status " either of these commands would require significant work to check 1200+ access points.
Is there another method for displaying this data?

For what it's worth, I imported the "show ap database" into excel using space delimiters and then used concatenate to create the script
=CONCATENATE("show ap port status ap-name ",A1, " | include Mb")
Which helped me find ~ 25 access points (out of 1250) with connectivity issues.
why don't you use a combination of 'show ap database long' extract the AP names out and put them ...why don't you use a combination of
'show ap database long'
extract the AP names out and put them in an excel file in column A1
Column A2 would look like this
="show ap port status ap-name "&A1
Drag down to get the command to output every ap name and then copy/paste into the controller.
Save your SSH session to a text file and then go through the output?
I am not sure whether this was discussed before or someone here can guide me onto how i can achieve the following from Aruba Airwave.
Currently there are 581 wireless APs in the network (mixtures of AP 61, AP 105 and AP 135) ,
i have just taken over the maintenance of the wireless network and the company request for the list of AP with the serial numbers for audit purposes.
i know i can get the information when i click on each AP to get the serial number but 500+ of them is no joking matter:
i tried looking into Reports > Inventory , but all i get are the AP name , MAC Address etc , doesnt really show the serial number
any kind souls can enlighten me on this?! thanks in advance =)

I've a requirement to do WLAN solution with small branches and each branch with 2 or 3 APs. They also need a centralized policy. I'm planing to use CAP(s) behind a RAP, but found this topic, https://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Wireless-Access/RAPs-and-CAPs-Provisioning-for-Branch-Office/m-p/307714. So that I can't use that choice. Another choice if looking IAP VC with VPN, the policy is separated. Any ideas or better way, please share us.
If you are using Airwave, you can configure IAPs and centralize your policies.If you are using Airwave, you can configure IAPs and centralize your policies.

At HQ with Aruba 7005, if customer is planning to use 2 or 3 broadband aDSL links that are linked to perform load sharing, can IAP VC (with VPN) at remote site establish 2 or 3 public IP addresses from HQ? if yes, please advise.
I found old post about clearing old AP from controller but for some reason I can't add RAP AP that was duplicate before. I was trying individual AP, all "clear gap-db lms lms-ip x.x.x.x, AP is not longer visible but I still get error that it exists
whitelist-db rap add mac-address "9c:1c:12:c1:7b:74" ap-group "mygroup" ap-name "AP-5-chicken"
RAP with same MAC address or RAP/Userwith same remote IP already exists
show ap database long | include 9c:1c:12:c1:7b:74
Even reboot of contorller does not help, version 220.127.116.11
Honestly the GAP db does not have anything to do with the AP or RAP whitelist. It is only a record that an AP physically associated with the controller. You can run the clear gap-db command on an AP that is currently up and it will still continue to function and the entry will be put back into the gap-db immediately.
The purpose of clearing the gap-db is mostly cosmetic so that you do not have to see an AP listed as "Down" that no longer will be on your system. Clearing the gap-db does not have a functional purpose and it does not disable an access point.
...-db did not removed it using name or mac address
So here is what I found. In the GUI remote ap whitelist had next page of APs which I did not see, I found this by using serach field, my bad. But this still does not explain why clear gap-db did not removed it using name or mac address
I cannot seem to find a definitive answer on this. We have Aruba AP-225s setup as campus APs using forward mode of tunneling. I can ping the APs from the controller and when connected wirelessly, but I cannot wired. I have seen several posts where this is expected behavior. I also also talked and seen information where this can be fixed through a configuration change. However I am unable to find what exactly I need to change to fix this. I also think this is possible because I worked with TAC before on another issue and they had me try and ping the AP from my computer and I told them I could not and that I could only ping from the controller or via wireless. They seemed surprised to hear this. If anyone could give me a definite answer on this that would be great. Thanks.
...access points could not be pinged in the manner you suggested. I would upgrade directly to...
That issue was resolved in ArubaOS 18.104.22.168. From the 22.214.171.124 release notes:
The bug symptom is generic and all-encompassing, but the bug was opened because access points could not be pinged in the manner you suggested.
I would upgrade directly to 126.96.36.199 after reviewing the release notes, however, since it just went GA this week and you would benefit from other fixed issues.
...the access point to work, because an access points is never managed externally from anything...
If you have control plane security enabled ("show control-plane-security "), there is an ipsec tunnel built between the access point and the controler for management traffic. Historically there was an issue where if a management device is on the same VLAN as the controller, the access point would respond to the ping from that device through the controller's tunnel and the traffic would be dropped. If you ping the access point from a different subnet, it would not send it through the tunnel, so it would work.
Ping is not essential for the access point to work, because an access points is never managed externally from anything besides the controller's ip address. Turning off control plane security would fix your issue, but it involves some downtime and it does nothing but allow you to ping your access points from the subnet of the controller, which is not important.

We had a vendor partner come in and do the initial setup on our system. So some of the settings i am unsure as to why they were set one way or another. Is there any issues to enabling port 0 as you described? Thanks.

I understand that ping is not essential for an access point to work. But when you moving from a system where this was part of the troubleshooting process for the Tier 1 and Tier 2 support it is helpful if as much of the system and available troubleshooting methods can be migrated from one system to the next. If that is not possible with Aruba, which I find odd, then we will just have to convey to them that Aruba doesn't support that kind of troubleshooting method.
I still find it odd that when I had another TAC case not related to this, that the first thing the TAC person asked me to do was ping the AP from my PC. Sounds like there is a bit of a disconnect there.

You can check the officially supported devices from the 'AirWave - Supported Infrastructure Devices' guide that is available from:
If your device is not in there, you have chances that basic monitoring through the standard/basic SNMP attributes may give some results. I never had the possibility to try Avaya switches and APs with Airwave.

Hi, Official IMC supports monitoring features (via SNMP) on mainy Avaya devices (I ...
Official IMC supports monitoring features (via SNMP) on mainy Avaya devices (I saw in the device matrix, switches, voip, video, security devices). Moreover, if the Avaya device is not in the "pre-defined" Avaya device models list, we can quickly add the device model in the WebUI (using SNMP sysoid to identify it).
I also checked the adapters (for configuration management), and I found (in the latest release), that there is an adapter to manage configuration file backup and software image deploy on "Avaya ERS 8600; 8800 switches, OS version 7.x, VSP 9012 switches, OS Version 3.3.x.x.".
Finally, if you like programming, you can add your own adapter TCL scripts to manage configuration for other device models.
I'm trying put back in the new device list a device that was once ignored.
In the webUI neither the delete button or unignore works, clicking on them will only show me a message about the licensing. As shown on the screenshot bellow :
Here's the result of clicking on one of those button :

Sorry to drum up an old topic, but I just ran into this issue this morning. I am using 93% of my licenses.

I had the problem on version 8.0.9, then trying to fix it I upgraded to 220.127.116.11, still the same problem.

For anyone looking for a fix to this problem, i got it from Aruba Support :
#dbc 'update ap set state = 0 where state =3;'
The corresponding command will move the all the APs in Ignored List to New Devices List.
I saw the release notes there is a new feature Clarity Synthetic and it is works only 200 series access points. It means this feature only work with AP-204/205 or with AP-204/205, -215, 225, 275?
Thank you for your help!
