    I have a question we currently have 32 apple Tv's onsite we use the
    Aruba mobility controller 3200XM version Group with 22 AP's
    105 and 93's. My issue is when we mirror we keep getting kicked off. I
    noticed in the virtual AP that Drop Broadcast and multicast is checked
    along with Convert Broadcast to ARP request to multicast.

    Should they be enabled or disabled? Or do you have another solution that
    I can look at?

    Make sure your Apple TV devices and the iPads are on the same role. 

    I do drop BC in my WLAN, and they worked with Apple TV

    This is my Apple TV with a role VIP-GUEST.  Your guest user should have the same role.  You can find the role in aaa profile.  If you are using the captive portal, the role is in "aaa authentication captive-portal <your CP profile>"

    Since you mention multiple VLANs, make sure the AppleTVs are not on a VLAN that is NAT'd.....whether src-nat is enabled on the VLAN or within the user-role policies.

    NAT will break AirPlay.

    Make sure you're allowing Airplay between both devices. According to the ArubaOSv6.3 user manual (p834), these are the ports:


    TCP: 5000, 7000, 7100, 8612,  49152-65535

    UDP: 7010, 7011, 8612, 49152-65535
