How to configure tunneled node with a controller cluster?

    Hello, I am upgrading my system and will now be using mobility controllers setup in a L3 cluster.  My Aruba switches  previously had tunneled node configured with a primary and backup controller.  How should I configure tunneled node now? Should I just use any cluster controller IP as primary controller IP

    Yes, just pick two IPs. I believe for port-based tunnel (=tunneled node), the switch will just pick the primary controller and fallback to the backup if there is an issue. With User Based Tunneling, the switch will follow the clustering for user traffic and distribute users over all controllers in the cluster.

    Check this video to see a switch with PBT to a gateway cluster.

    If you have urgent issues, always contact your Aruba partner, distributor, or Aruba TAC Support. Check https://www.arubanetworks.com/support-services/contact-support/ for how to contact Aruba TAC.
