    Posted Jan 26, 2023 09:51 AM
    I have been tasked with moving hundreds of switches mostly 2930 models to Aruba Central. My experience with Central so far has not been the greatest to say the least. Does anyone have any suggestions on adding these to Central. With this I need to keep the current configuration on the switches and we need to be able to manage the switch with CLI and FortiNAC. Thank you in advanced.

    Add the switches to Central and move them into a Monitor Only group. You may need to configure 'aruba-central support-mode' on the switch to enable all commands. Unsure if there is a minimal version for the switch to run in monitor only with Central, but probably there is. Firmware 16.10 or 16.11 should work without issues.

    If you have urgent issues, always contact your Aruba partner, distributor, or Aruba TAC Support. Check for how to contact Aruba TAC. Any opinions expressed here are solely my own and not necessarily that of Hewlett Packard Enterprise or Aruba Networks.

    There is a CSV import feature for Greenlake. It's when you add devices to Greenlake, you can choose "import" option.
    There is also an API for Greenlake. With that you can also assign subscriptions to a device

    Here is some detailed info on how to add devices to Central and retain the existing config.
