Aruba Central API - Get last known running configuration issue

    Posted Jan 26, 2023 08:19 AM

    I'm writing a python script to easily tear down and set up our demo customer in our MSP environment. One of the things I need to do is download the configuration of the devices before I tear everything down. For this I use the "/configuration/v1/devices//configuration" node as specified in the documentation.
    Unfortunately, this only seems to work on Access Points (AOS10.3.1.3) and not on Gateways (mix of 7010, 9004, 9004-LTE and vGW on Azure with AOS10.3.1.3) and Switches (AOS-CX 10.10.1030).
    On the gateways I either get a HTTP 500 "internal server error" or a HTTP 200 "Fetching configuration in progress for Mobility Controller <device_serial>/<MAC address>", but no configuration.
    On the switch (I currently only have one 6200F to play with) I get a HTTP 404 "Device <device_serial> or its configuration not found".

    My script is as follows:
    from pycentral.base import ArubaCentralBase
    from pprint import pprint
    from config.config import config
    def getConfiguration(central, device_serial):
        apiPath = f"/configuration/v1/devices/{device_serial}/configuration"
        apiMethod = "GET"
        headers = {"accept": "multipart/form-data"}
        resp = central.command(apiMethod=apiMethod, apiPath=apiPath, headers=headers)
        return resp
    def main():
        central_info = config["central_info"] # tested and correct
        ssl_verify = True
        central_info["token"] = ArubaCentralBase(
            central_info=central_info, ssl_verify=ssl_verify
        central = ArubaCentralBase(central_info=central_info, ssl_verify=ssl_verify)
        configuration = getConfiguration(central, <some_correct_serial>)
    if __name__ == "__main__":

    Any ideas?
