    We can run cli command to a switch to detect cable faults. If the switch is cloud managed in Aruba Central we can use the GUI to test the cable.

     

    Test Details:

    • Aruba Central - AUTO-ATH-2.4.9-687-P
    • 2930F switch 
    • AP-515

    My AP is connected to port 4 of 2930F with 4 meters cable. I will check if I have cable faults using Aruba Central.

     

    1. Under Maintenance > Tools > Device Check . Run "Cable Test" to a selected switch.

    3. Or you can laso check the cable test result by issuing show cable-diagnostics. Maintenance > Tools > Adanced.

    Based on the test result my cable is good and also it confirmed that it is 4 meters long. Very useful command to test layer 1.
