ArubaCX update workflow question

    Posted 10 days ago

    Hello all,

    I have two questions/points regarding the update workflow for ArubaCX switches.

    Maybe someone of you has some tips for a better workflow.

    I would like to try to simplify and automate the firmware update workflow.

    For example, if I want to update from version 10.06 to version 10.09, so an intermediate update to version 10.07 is needed.

    As far as I know, I get this information only from the release notes PDF, which I have to look through manually.

    So I am wondering if Aruba provides an interface (perhaps REST API), whereby it is possible programmatically to get this information.

    My second point is downloading firmware files:

    Is there a way to automate the download process of update files as well? When I download a firmware file from the Aruba Software Portal, I get a link with some parameters, so that the link is not permanently valid. I understand why the download links are equipped with these parameters. However, downloading manually through the ASP is time consuming and not efficient.

    Maybe someone here also knows a more efficient way.

    Best regards,
    Robin
