    Can Aruba controllers be configured to block or contain other SSIDs? On Friday our Remote Site users trying to connect wireless are Associating / Disassociating from our Wireless SSID , they get an IP Address and then a few seconds later Event Viewer states Client Left AP. I had a teammate look for a Rouge APs but now leaning towards a tenant using Aruba Wireless Controller using a setting causing this issue with our wireless connections. I'm not familiar with Aruba so hoping someone could confirm this may be happening if someone could provide a link of the setting so I could forward it over to our property manager who could reach out to offending tenant. Thanks.

    The short answer is, yes it can be configured.  The long answer is:  If you are in the United States, I would obtain legal advice about what you can and cannot do with regards to ids/ips:  https://community.arubanetworks.com/community-home/digestviewer/viewthread?MID=1112
