Doing a bit of research on the forum for various AC AP's mesh support, you can find a bit of info about it not being supported yet. As I understand any mesh role for the AC AP's (22x, 20x, 27x) is not supported. Both for Controller and IAP version of them.
This was originally announced to come in Q3 2014 with the arrival of the 225, but I found a post saying the goal now was November/December 2014.
I have deployed a few solutions with 225 and 275, and they are really good. However I am sure many of us are waiting in anticipation for the mesh support on these. Especially for the 275/274 AP's it's a feature that is sorely missing at the moment. In my mind an outdoor AP is just as likely to be used in mesh of some form, as to be used as a standard AP.
Now my question is do you have any more info you can share with us on this matter?
For instance what software versions are you aiming for to introduce this feature, and is it truly November/December that is your goal for this feature introduction or is that incorrect?
It would also be nice if you are able to update the community about any big changes on the timeline for this feature.
My Aruba account team is not very responsive.
So I'll just reiterate the question... any idea when mesh for AP-275 will be announced? I have 2 or 3 locations that would be extremely difficult and expensive to get a network connection to.
Target is still Nov/Dec 2014.
I read this in the release notes for 18.104.22.168. I was expecting mesh support to be added on IAP-275, but this seems to indicate that it is not going to be avaiilable at all for IAP2xx.
No Support for Mesh on W-IAP2xx Series Access Points
Starting from 22.214.171.124-4.1.1 through 6.4.x.x-4.1.1.x releases, Mesh will not be supported on W-IAP2xx Series access points.
Any updates on this?
I can't find any statement in Release Notes about MESH support for 2x0 series AP, tho only thing I find is in RN 126.96.36.199 for a bugfix in relation to MESH for AP-275.
No update unfortunately.
The initial target AOS is 6.4.3.x, so as you start to see the announcements for that version, that will contain the mesh features for 11ac APs.
when will the mesh supported in the AC access points ?
which version of IAP will support Mesh , and which version of Aruba OS.
I believe it should out soon on AOS 6.4.3 for the controller version

What about IAP version
AOS 188.8.131.52 is available as Early Release
The release notes have been updated and MESH is supported on all 802.11ac capable APs
What about the IAP version , any new ?!
IAP support for meshing with our 802.11ac access points is currently slated for release at the end of June.
They know anything about this software on IAP? and we will start the month of August and still nothing ..
I have the beta code, but I do not yet confirmed the date of the official code. should be to the end of June.
thanks for your answer !
Instant 184.108.40.206 code has been officially released and is now available on our support site.
Mesh for the AP-220 series AP is now available in AOS 220.127.116.11
I'm trying to get AP-275s to work as a mesh on an Aruba 6000 controller. Everything I've read points to this feature being available on code 6.4.3.x and later. However, when I go to your downloads section, I see no files available for the Aruba 6000. Please advise.
