hi arubaCustomers want to fully deploy IPv6, but the following issues are not well understood.1. The DS shows the maximum number of concurrent users for the aruba 7220 controller is 24567. is this the actual number of terminals or the total number of users in the user-table entry?2. If the number of concurrent users is defined based on the actual number of terminals, is there a limit on the user-table entry? Is there any limit to the user-table entries? What is the maximum number of users that a table entry can limit?
If you need a confirmative answer, please reach out to Aruba support or ask the question via your local Aruba Sales team.
I have always read the number of users as the number of users, not the number of IP addresses. There is information out that there is a limit on 2 IPv4 and 4 IPv6 addresses and I see in my environment regularly that the privacy IPv6 IPs are rotated and it stays at the max of 4 active IPv6.
Also, found this command that suggests something similar:
(md7010) #show user-table station

I've not seen issues in IPv6 environments with customers hitting the user limit, and I would expect issues to be widely spread if the number of IPs was counted instead of associations.
Others may have more information or check with your local SE or Aruba Support.
