Overview of Aruba Instant Aruba Instant:
(Instant) is a system of access points per Layer 2 subnet. Aruba Instant IAPs are controlled by a single IAP that serves a dual role as a primary Virtual Controller, eliminating the need for dedicated controller hardware. This system can be deployed through a simplified setup process appropriate for smaller organizations, or for multiple geographically dispersed locations without an on-site administrator. Only the first IAP/Virtual Controller you add to the network must be configured; the subsequent IAPs will all inherit the necessary configuration information from the Virtual Controller. Aruba Instant continually monitors the network to determine the IAP that should function as the Virtual Controller at any time, and the Virtual Controller will move from IAP to IAP as necessary without impacting network performance. The Virtual Controller technology in Aruba Instant is capable of IAP auto discovery, 802.1X authentication, role-based and device-based policy enforcement, rogue detection, and Adaptive Radio Management (ARM).
ArubaOS is the operating system, software suite, and application engine that operates Aruba mobility controllers and centralizes control over the entire mobile environment. The ArubaOS wizards, command-line interface (CLI), and the ArubaOS Web UI are the primary means used to configure and deploy ArubaOS. For a complete description of ArubaOS, refer to the ArubaOS User Guide for your release.
This guide covers the deployment of Aruba remote access points (RAP) in fixed telecommuter and micro branch office sites, and it is considered part of the base designs guides within the VRD core technologies series. This guide covers the design recommendations for remote network deployment and it explains the various configurations needed to implement a secure, high-performance virtual branch office (VBN) solution with Aruba RAPs.
This guide covers Aruba Mobility Controllers and is considered part of the foundation guides within the VRD core technologies series. This guide will help you understand the capabilities and options you have when deploying an Aruba Mobility Controller. This guide describes operating modes for the mobility controller, licensing, forwarding modes, logical and physical deployment, redundancy, and how to select the appropriate mobility controller based on scalability requirements. Version 9 includes information on the 7200 series controller.

I am new to aruba products. Can anyone explain the tunnel formation that is happening in master-local.
1. My AP is forming a PAPI tunnel with the master and then it checks the lms ip which is the local controller's IP.
2. Now my AP will it form PAPI tunnel at first with the local controller or is it GRE and then PAPI
Thank you in advance

This is a great document and all the VRDs are. My comment is this one document has the 600 series controller which are end of life/sale. I wounder if there is someone working on a newer version that replaces them with 700 series?
Thank you for choosing AirWave 8.0. AirWave makes it easy and efficient to manage your wireless network by combining industry-leading functionality with an intuitive user interface, enabling network administrators and helpdesk staff to support and control even the largest wireless networks in the world.
When Mobility Access Switch (MAS) devices are added to AirWave, AirWave supports group-level of those devices, the operating system, software suite, and application engine that operates mobility and centralizes control over the entire network environment.
For a complete description of ArubaOS, refer to the ArubaOS User Guide for your specific Aruba Mobility Access Switch version.
The AirWave Management Client™ (AMC) is a Windows software utility that enables a client device, like a laptop, to act as a passive RF sensor and augment the AirWave Wireless Management Suite’s (AWMS) Rogue Access Point Intrusion Detection System (RAPIDS) module. The AirWave Management Client can improve both wireless network security and performance.
