    hi there

    i upgrade Mobility Conductor and Mobility Controller to version 8.10.0.11, after upgrade success i can't see WLAN config. Is this bug in version 8.10.0.11 ? I need upgrade to version 8.10.0.11 because from version 8.10.0.10 there is exploit

    Open a case with TAC, that looks like a bug.

    Same thing happened to us.

    You can still view the config from, Systems > Profiles, and then working your way down to the wlan config.

    Definitely a bug, though I havenät had time to contact the TAC support yet.

    Same here on our test setup(515's on 7210). Doesn't seem to be just cosmetic for us, WLAN is missing on AP's, so no SSID being broadcast. AP's restarting every couple of minutes since upgrade, like it is trying to reach controller, but can see them going up/down on controller. Provisioned a new AP using different network path(switch, WAN) same thing happens.

    Hey Dan, please make sure to open a TAC case if you haven't already.

    Our environment is pretty stable at 2x7220 - 8.10.0.10 (occasional AP reboots Cluster Hbt), but the 9.8 CVE-2024-33512 is not something we want to leave open, we can see if someone attempts to exploit the vulnerability (private party for the perpetrator :) and its contained for us. Not everyone is gonna have our luxury of containment and control. We thought about applying ACLs at AP ports on 8211, but new code fixes issue so...

    Dan did you roll back code?

    Edit: Our SSID's not being broadcast was due to licensing disappearing on the MC. Don't know why, assuming the VM MAC(s) changed for some reason as the Passphrase had changed when I compared it to what was on the licensing portal. Transferred the licenses using the current Passphrase and applied to the MC, SSID broadcast and AP's up/down issues resolved, AP's up for 3 days after. So that seems to have been a red herring for us. We just had the GUI issue for WLAN's like everyone else here.

    A TAC was raised after posting here, they were no help in advising/suggesting I needed to transfer the licenses when it found the licenses were missing.

    Updated to 8.10.0.12 Yesterday, testing continues, nothing obvious found.

    Hello,

    I have the same situation at one of our customers.
    TAC informed us that the issue is known and offered also an BUG ID.
    But the ID is not listed at the release notes yet, so I don’t want to post it here before the release notes are not updated by aruba.

    As workaround, you should be able to configure all SSID related profiles from CLI.
    If you can live with the vulnerabilities, you can decide not to update to 8.10.0.11….

    Did you try open MCR web gui console using browser in incognito or private mode?

    That's could potentially fix that

    Yes.
    And no, it was not fixing it in our case.

    Would you be willing to share the BUG ID Privately so that I could reference it when I open a TAC Case along with my theory. I believe I've identified the issue through some testing in our lab. The issue only affected three of our WLANs [out of 10]  - and through process of elimination - if the "Virtual AP Profile" name contains a "Capital Letter" then the WLAN will not be displayed properly. This is specifically the profile name [your SSID profile and/or SSID broadcasting can contain a capital], it's specifically the Virtual AP Profile Name - seen under System -> Profiles -> Virtual AP

    A potential work-around for those really wanting to use the GUI [since it does seem to be cosmetic] could be to perform a "Submit As" on each affected profile - and name it with all lowercase characters - and apply the new virtual ap to affected AP Groups. Although this will cause connected devices to reset

    momentary/briefly I believe.


    Example of WLAN with Virtual AP Profile with "Capital Letters" when viewing the "Profiles" Section [enabled via preferences] - you can see that the "Virtual AP" is blank.


    Example of WLAN With Virtual AP Profile with "No capital letters" - still the same SSID though.



    Also this is purely speculation on my part, but wonder if patching AOS-248739 [Resolved Issue in 8.10.0.11], was possibly the cause of this as that change was related to the the Configuration -> WLAN section of the WebUI and caused a new unintentional bug.
