    Check this solution for the password recovery procedure for Aruba Mobility Access Switches (MAS).

    In the password reset account (forgetme!) you can only reset the password. When done with that, logout and login with the admin account the net new password.

    Please note these switches run a legacy Aruba OS which is more similar to what runs on the controllers. It is different from what we now know as ArubaOS-Switch which is based on the HP switches or Provision-OS. I know it can be confusing.

    Documentation for the Aruba Mobility Access switches can be found here.

    To show your IP settings, run the command 'show ip interfaces brief':
    (stack01) #show ip interface brief
    
    Flags: S - Secondary IP address
    Probe: U - Up, D - Down, U/O - Up & Own IP, N/A - Not Applicable
    Interface                   IP Address / IP Netmask        Admin   Protocol Probe  Flags
    vlan 42                    10.42.0.211 / 255.255.255.0     Up      Up       N/A
    mgmt                        unassigned / unassigned        Up      Down     N/A​

    Config for this:
    vlan "42"
    !
    interface vlan "42"
       ip address 10.42.0.211 255.255.255.0
    !
    ip-profile
       default-gateway 10.42.0.254
    !​

    You can configure the management interface as well, but having in-band management is convenient in most cases as you don't need to connect multiple interfaces. Also, I configured vlan 42, so you will need to put the interfaces in vlan 42 with a switching profile. By default all interfaces are in vlan 1, so to get started you may set an IP in interface vlan 1.

    Sorry, I missed that about the webUI not working. Please upgrade the firmware of the switch. Older firmware had a public certificate included which has been revoked a few years ago. Newer firmware fixes that. It might also fix the 'no permission' problem, which I have not seen before but may be related that the product is end-of-sale for quite some time now.

    For the WebUI, what you can try is to get an old browser (try one 6+ years old) or old Win98/WinXP if you have that laying around in which case you might bypass the certificate warnings and access the WebUI. Upgrades through the WebUI are more convenient unless you are familiar with running TFTP servers to host the firmware updates.

    Hi,

    is it possible to change the ports Name?
    So that i can see it in the Dashboard?
    When i can add the Description this will help.

    I have some two cable from the S2500 to other Switch.
    How i can configure them for Trunk support?

    You can set a port description with the 'description' command per interface (or per VLAN). I don't think you can see or set that in the WebUI, except from the configuration-ports screen.

    Depending on what you mean with Trunk port:
    You can configure tagged VLANs in a switching profile, and assign that to a port or port-range.
    You can configure a port-channel to bundle multiple ports together for redundancy or increased capacity.
    You can put a switching profile on a port-channel to combine both features.

    Hi,

    yes Description works.
    But on the Dashboard you see only the port name.
    At interface you see the name gigabitethernet0/0/18
    This i want to change.

    you can configure a port-channel to bundle multiple ports together for redundancy or increased capacity.
    This i what i looking for

    But what is more important how i can shutdown the PoE for sometime.
    I have same AP where i want to Power-Off from Midnight to 6:00 am.
