The 6.x and 8.x code are very different from each other.
If you update from 6.x to 8.x the controller configuration is empty and need to be re-configured from the begin.
Is very unlikely to do a vrrp between to different codes.
Best way is deploying ArubaOS8 with using a Aruba Mobility Master which can be buyed as a virtual appliance.
I will ask the question a little more quickly.Can I do a VRRP without problems with the following:1.- 2 controllers2.- Same version of operational system3.- Different Hardware Versions (7205-7210)
Thank you in advance for your clarifications.
That will works fine! Aslong you keep in mind the maximal AP capacity of the 7205 controller. At the ArubaOS8 code you can still do a "master-standby" configuration as often was used in the 6.x code. But with ArubaOS8 clustering give you a much more seamless configuration and failover.
In ArubaOS8 a (virtual) Mobility Master is recommened to make use of all new features like clustering, airmatch and in service live upgrades. When use a ArubaOS8 mobility master and clustering there is no need for VRRP anymore.
VRRP in an ArubaOS8 cluster (with a mobility master) is used for ONLY two things (no need for AP failover);.
Also in a ArubaOS8 cluster you can mix the 7205 and 7210 in one cluster.
Hi @mkkThank you very much for your prompt response.In relation to the 7210 controller that we currently have installed, configured and ending Aps. We want to update this driver to version 8 from version 6.5.Do you have any tips or recommendations to update this driver?I understand that the migration tool will not work for what we want to do.Thank you very much for taking some time to answer the questions.
