    Hello all,

     

    I am working remotely and I have a RAP 303 that terminate at the controller. I also have access to airwave.  

    we are transitioning from RAP deployment to IAP-VPN. 

    how can I convert the RAP to IAP remotely so I can configure it be as a Master instant AP and the others at the same location as Slave instant APs.

     

    Thanks!

    Oh that's going to be tough. I think you should be able to enable ap telnet/ssh, and then wipe the configuration from the remote console connection. You should then point the APs to Airwave via Aruba Activate and then push a config, or use Aruba Central if you have it to configure the AP for IAP-VPN.

     

    Otherwise someone will have to console into the AP and factory reset it....

    That is awesome! I will definitely try it once the transition starts.

     

    Thanks again!

    The web help has a section on converting APs to Instant APs. https://www.arubanetworks.com/techdocs/ArubaOS_8.11.0_Web_Help/Content/arubaos-solutions/access-points/conv-ap-iap.htm
