    I am running 6.5.4.23 which is the last version of AOS 6 series. I plan to upgrade to OAS 8 next year. How long will Aruba provide security/vulnerability patches for AOS 6.5 considering theing the general support for AOS 6.5 has already ended.

    I believe the end of support was in august, and I'm pretty sure patching would stop. Unless it's a huge vulnerability, I don't see why they would.

    Yes, the normal patching would stop but if there is any major vulnerability I do hope we are not left dead in water.

    No patches after Dec 31 2021 is what their official list says. It has been end of sale since May 2020. You have had plenty of time to upgrade to AOS 8.
