if i recall correctly there was a more extensive video on the s3500 a while ago in training section of the aruba website. i appear unable to find that now, is it still around?
There are some eLearning modules listed in the training section of the website.
Please see screen shot (attachment) for location.
Are these the modules you were speaking of seeing in the past ?
thanks, i did find those, but i believe there was something more general in the past, wasn't that long ago, perhaps 1-2 months.
i will check those eLearning modules, but it seems they focus on the configuration and less on the general concept of the s3500.
There are some more broad videos under our Mobility Access Switch (MAS) page as well:
yep, watched those also. mainly what im missing now is some info on how they impact licenses. that part i cant seem to find anywhere.
Sure no worries Mr. Yard. ;)
Each S3500/S2500 'consumes' the same licenses that an access point (AP) does from the controller. (e.g. one license of each 'flavour' on the controller.)
If you 'stack' the LAN switches together then each stack 'consumes' the same licenses that an access point (AP) does from the controller. (e.g. more efficient in terms of licensing)
thanks a lot for all the quick answers, i believe i have a nice basic knowledge now.
Does each port use an AP license (24 ports, 24 pluged in devices, uses 24 licenses)? or does a 24 port switch, with 24 pluged in devices, only use 1 AP license?
When using Tunneled-Node, each standalone Mobility Access Switch consumes one AP license. An ArubaStack of Mobility Access Switches also just consumes one AP license irrespective of ports used or number of members. However the more ports being used, the more traffic being sent to the controller.
1 AP license per switch or stack.
Thanks, do you know of a white paper that backs that up. I'm not doubting your opinion, but just need something for the bosses.
Check out the 7.2 user guide, page 286, 3rd bullet from the top.
Make sure your controller has tunnel capacity as well. Each tunneled-node port creates a tunnel and the controllers have limits (hardware platform, not licensed) on top of the tunnel count used by your access points.
