Central managed AP 655 AOS10 with dual PoE+ config

    Hello Airheads,

    I have to bring up 2x PoE+ to an AP655 to work properly with 4x4 mimo.

    Therefore I want to connect 2 TX cable to an Aruba Switch Stack.

    AP 655 is managed by central and is running AOS10.

    What is best practice to config this kind of setup? (step by step)

    Cheers 

    Michael

    AFAIK you just connect the Eth ports to your switch and for diversity, you can connect to different stack member

    In AOS10 there are just a couple of options (AOS8 was a little more complex with specific GRE Striping etc.)

    That being said, the Aruba AP will automatically sense the presence of an active LACP interface (via BPDUs) - it will then configure both interfaces in as LACP. 

    So just by configuring the Switch as LACP the AP will follow suit automatically. In this case it may also be worth checking on the LACP load-balancing algorithm of your switching platform.
