Configuring IAP for Airwave Discovery using DHCP on Linux Server

  • 1.  Configuring IAP for Airwave Discovery using DHCP on Linux Server

    Posted 12 days ago

    We are looking to migrate our DHCP service from an Aruba OS switch to a Linux server as it is more scalable.

    Does anyone know the correct syntax for DHCP option 43 on a Linux server ?

     

    Below is sample config we were using on Aruba OS switch:

     

    dhcp-server pool "East-Quad"
    default-router "10.10.1.1"
    network 10.10.1.0 255.255.255.0
    option 43 ascii "Eastquad,10.80.2.201,secret123"
    option 60 ascii "ArubaInstantAP"
    range 10.10.1.10 10.10.1.100
    exit

     

    Below is a sample dhcp.conf file on linux server, but how would I include Airwave Group and Airwave Pre Shared Key ?

     

    option serverip code 43 = ip-address;

    class "vendor-class" {

    match option vendor-class-identifier;
    }

    subnet 10.10.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {

    default-lease-time 200;

    max-lease-time 200;

    option subnet-mask 255.255.255.0;

    option routers 10.10.1.1;

    subclass "vendor-class" "ArubaInstantAP" {

    option vendor-class-identifier "ArubaInstantAP";
    #
    # option serverip <loopback-IP-address-of-master-controller>

    #
    option serverip 10.80.2.201;
    }
    range 10.10.1.10 10.10.1.100;
    }

    Hi Marcel, I've seen that link before but it does not show how you would include the Airwave Group or Airwave pre-shared key.

     

    option 43 ascii "group,10.80.2.201,secret1" 

     

    Im looking for the equivalent config of option 43 above from an Aruba OS Switch but on a linux server ?
