    Posted Mar 21, 2023 03:57 PM

    We have a stack of 3 3810m switches that were connected to Aruba Central but we disconnected them because it was easier to manage them through the web ui. However we've run into an issue, about a month ago, that whenever we try to connect through the web ui it reboots the 1st switch in the stack. Is there a way to re enable the connection to Aruba Central through cli?

    It depends on how you disabled Central for these switches:

    • If you removed the subscription in Central, the switch is dropped back to local management. In that case, just re-apply the Central subscription and the switch will connect back. Be aware that Central may revert back the configuration to the one in Central, overwriting the actual config. Central config is considered 'the source of truth'.
    • If you disabled central from the switch CLI, you can enable it again:
      sw00(config)# aruba-central
       disable               Disable Aruba Central server support.
       enable                Enable Aruba Central server support.
       support-mode          Enter support mode to enable all configuration commands.
      sw00(config)# aruba-central enable
      Here the same warning that switch config in Central, if there will be applied.

    Hmmm, Central was disabled through the WebUI...would the cli commands still work?
