Prevent iap from contacting mobility controller

    Hi,

    i've got the following issue.

    I want to stage an iap setup at the office.  Unfortunately when the iap (model 515) boots it connects automatically to the mobility controller we have.
    When i perform the same action on my network at home, it works as expected, it boots into iap mode (and publishes the setup ssid etc...). 

    I've been searching for a way to prevent this, but so far no luck...  Currently i'm looking into a way to block trafic to our dns servers using an acl on a switch.

    Is there another way to perform this task?  I've been doing some searching, found some commands to enter on the cli of the ap (can't find the thread back right now) but this also did not do the trick...

    You would use an AP deployment policy:  https://www.arubanetworks.com/techdocs/ArubaOS_86_Web_Help/Content/arubaos-solutions/access-points/ap-depl-poli.htm?Highlight=deployment%20policy

    Confirmed working.  Altough i had some trouble pushing it from the MM to the MD (MM was allright but for some reason MD did not pick this up).  Also, some of my ap's seem to have rebooted after activating...  I only use the blacklist option.

    Or from the AP itself, if you have access to the ap console (apboot): https://community.arubanetworks.com/browse/articles/blogviewer?blogkey=1feb1848-ff79-409d-9be7-401af63d629c [where you might need to give the save command after the setenv to store the configuration]
