Configuring MAS interfaces, VLANs and ports



The Aruba Mobility Switch (MAS) allows each port to be configured as either an access or trunk port. This solution will generate the configuration codes for each type of configuration.

The MAS interface is using the following numbering convention. Each MAS port has three separate numbers:

  • First number denotes slot number; in stacking mode, the first number is the stack member identification.
  • Second number denotes the base ports; where 0 indicates the base interfaces and 1 indicates the uplink interfaces.
  • Third number denotes the individual interface/port number.

For example, the interface gigabitethernet 0/0/20 denotes the slot number zero (0), module 0 and port number 20. In the case of Stacking, the first number denotes the member identification.


  • When modifying the interface group member list, the entire list of interfaces needs to be specified since the latest list of member interfaces would overwrite the previous list.
  • An interface can belong to only one interface group at a time.
  • When an interface is a member of an interface group, applying a specific profile to the interface takes precedence over the  interface group.
