IAP-315 and ArubaOS 8.x?

Jump to Best Answer
  • 1.  IAP-315 and ArubaOS 8.x?

    Posted Aug 24, 2018 04:26 AM

    Hello,

    I'm new to Aruba APs and just bought one IAP-315 running as a standalone AP @home.

    It's running the most recent airos 6.5.x to which it got upgraded after pressing the "upgrade" button in the webgui. Afaics this Model should also be able to run airos 8.x. Unfortunately I couldn't find out how to upgrade ans no option is given in the webgui. In the download area unter "lifetime warranty software" you cannot download the current 6.5.x software let alone the 8.x airos.  I don't own any licenses.

     

    I couldn't find any further information, but maybe I missed it. Any help would be much apprechiated.

     

    Thanks

    J.

    Thank you Charlie!

    So now I understand that "limitzed lifetime warranty" is nothing my IOAP-315 falls under (at least atm).

     

    But the main question remains: how/where to get airos 8.x for the IAP-315? The download section requires me to have a support contract but [1] states that for IAP I don't have t purchase anything additional.

     

    Any help much apprechiated!

    The lifetime software warranty provides bug fix firmware updates for the version you purchased. It does not entitle feature software upgrades. To get AOS 8.x prior to it being marked as a bug fix for your current version, you would need to have a support contract.

    Dear Charlie,

     

    thanks for your reply, even though it's not what I expected let alone what I would have liked to hear.

    Well, I contacted aruba sales more than 4 weeks ago, asking for a quote for a license for a single instant AP for upgrading aurbaos to 8.x. They didn't bother to answer...

    Thats disappointing. Where did you buy the IAP-315 from? I've purchased from resellers like CDW (if you are U.S. based) in the past who were set up to handle the volume of low unit count sales, since I was buying one or two APs at a time along with support.

    thanks @cclemmer for your reply. I searched around but couldn't find any provider for a license. My original seller cannot provide any.
