    adding a new local controller that is a 7220 running 6.4.2 and I cannot disable Control PLane Security. Its greyed out. I am thinking this is why I cannot see the new local from the Master. Any ideas?


    #7220

    Is CPSec enabled on Master? Do you have the same code on every controller?
    Regards,

    - Control Plane Security is enabled/disabled at the master

    - You cannot enable/disable it at the local

    - If the local never contacted the master, either because of a bad PSK or other reasons, it will not show up in the master, AND you will not be able to change the Control Plane Security Status.

    well when I setup the 7200 I entered the IP and MAC of the master in there but it never shows up in the Master

    It is supposed to be the ip address and a preshared key, NOT the MAC of the master:

     

    Please see here:  http://www.arubanetworks.com/techdocs/ArubaOS_63_Web_Help/Web_Help_Index.htm#ArubaFrameStyles/Adding_Local_Switches/Moving_to_a_Multi__Envir.htm on how to configure a PSK for a local controller and a master controller.

    Thanks for level of detail. I performed the inital controller steps and it didn't work using the mac address of the master. Instead, used your notes and it worked!

    Thanks!
