    Hi,
     Small problem here

    REcently upgraded an AirWave device from 8.2.8.1 -> 8.2.10.1

    and since then  it keeps detecting new devices  and dropping them into the default Access Points folder ... except theyre not new devices theyre already known ones. There are about 110  devices that have both snmpv3 and snmpv2 credentials configured on them. The discover page has no networks or credentail defined and the communicatinos page has a default snmpv3 setting for "Aruba" devices set up.

    Even if we  move the discoveded devices into the correct folder they keep coming back  and apearing in the Access Point folder

    How can i stop this happening?
    Rgds

    What kind of devices are they?

    This airwave appliance is specifically for Aruba switches predominately 2930s

    Devices can be discovered by LLDP information from other devices.  Is that the case?

    Hi,

    I have a similar requirement. We are doing a PoC for WIPS. The customer ask is as below:

    1. Detect the wired MAC address  & or IP address of the Rogue AP.

     

    The controller shows the BSSID (radio mac). But we need the LAN mac so as to identify the switch port it is connected to.

     

    Any suggestion if this is possible (with / without Airwave) and the commands / steps for that.

    Thank you

    For new Device discovery :
    Are the switches discovered with different IP or same IP? Are the switches added with switch IP to Airwave or any VLAN IP?
    Airwave should not discover same device with same IP and MAC.

    For WIDS:
    Aruba controller will have the wired information too to state it as a Rogue. but to get wired MAC of Rogue from switch on Airwave and to do wired to wireless correlation, you need to add both controllers and switches to Airwave. When a user connects to Rogue AP, Airwave gets BSSID info and MAC tables from switch to correlate the data.
