Hello I am new to Aruba and now doing a lab exercise to create a roaming network by a 7005 controller, 1500-24P access switch and two IAP-215 Access point.
Is it correct for me to connect the controller non-PoE port 1 to the switch port 1, the two access points to the port 2,4?
I have connect the RJ-45 connector to the console of the switch.
Could this design works?
Ports 1-3 are non POE Ports and Port E0 is a PoE "In" Port so the controller can get powerd with PoE. It doesn't support PoE Out to power APs.
"7005 Cloud Services Controller is a compact, fanless entry-level branch platform that can be powered by a power-over-Ethernet (PoE) switch."
Yes you can roam between them. First configure one IAP the way you want it. When you plug the second IAP into the network, it should pick up the configuration of the first one and you should be able to see both access points in the GUI of the first IAP. Your clients should be able to roam seamlessly between them.
If you are providing DHCP on the VLAN that you plug your IAPs into, you should be set...
