    Dear Guys,

    In fact I have a specific need where I have to connect 1 device to a specific access point. The access point is managed by an Aruba Controller 7205.
    For e.g mac address xx-xx-xx-xx-xx-xx will connect to AP3.

    Also I wanted to know if a hidden SSID can be configured on Aruba controller ?

    Thanks

    There is no configuration that will do that, unfortunately.  Back in the day, the IBM Thinkvantage supplicant allowed you to specify the AP that your client must connect to.  I have not seen that anywhere recently, however.

    "Hide SSID " Of course, there are options on the controller for this setting. 
    In the OS8 system, there are many options that you must use advanced options to see.

    Also enable "deny broadcast probes".  Both are required for a true "hidden" SSID.
