    Hey all,

     

    I've been tasked with composing a doc for my team that'll detail commands used to create VAPs and such from CLI, but after going through the entire manual, other than finding a lot of really useful commands that I didn't know about, I didn't find anything on the creation of VAPs and such via CLI. Truly, the only way to mass configure Aruba Instant APs is to setup the config file and then push it via AirWave, but I just wanted to double-check before I told them that it couldn't be done.

     

    Any info that anyone could offer would be appreciated.

     

    Thanks!

    Instant does not have the concept of Virtual APs the way the controller-based architecture does.  Please see the attached CLI user guide, specifically the section on wlan ssid-profile.

     

    As you mention, you can use AirWave (or Aruba Central) to configure the Instant APs as well.  AirWave offers both template based configuration and GUI configuration.

    Thanks, clembo. As previously stated, I was aware of the CLI guide, but just wanted to double check. I'll be reviewing the config section on the Airwave Deployment pdf.

     

    Thanks again,
