Aruba IAP - Existing Cluster

    Hello all,

    If I have an existing IAP cluster and an IAP is removed and the config of the remaining VC changes what happens when an IAP with an older config is reintroduced into the cluster? Is there a way that the returning AP could overwrite the existing config or is there a configuration version control system to stop this happening so that the version with the highest number win?

    If you re-join an AP to a running cluster, it will take the configuration from the running cluster and the at that point running VC.

    Hello Herman,

    Thanks for the reply.
    What would happen if the cluster was rebooted then an AP with an older config was connected to the network before the other cluster APs came back up. Would they inherit the config from the older AP as it would be the network VC?

    It is possible for that to happen yes.
