Removing controller from Mobility Conductor cluster

  • 1.  Removing controller from Mobility Conductor cluster

    Posted Jun 16, 2022 10:59 AM
    Hello!

    I have recently deployed a Mobility Conductor virtual cluster for a customer and attached one Aruba 7205 controller. I then configured the entire wireless environment from scratch. The customer had forgotten to purchase the Mobility licensing, and after receiving a quote they've decided that it is too costly. They would like to remove the controller from the Mobility Conductor cluster and run it it master/standalone mode.

    Is it possible to remove the controller from the cluster, and have it maintain its configuration that it inherited from the Mobility Cluster? I am trying to avoid having to reconfigure everything from scratch again!

    Thanks in advance!

    So, first, make sure you back up all the configs, and the flash. Move them off the controller (i.e. flash drive.tftp, etc.).

    Then, you can't manage/config a controller that's associated to a vMM/MM. You need to turn on disaster-recovery: https://www.arubanetworks.com/techdocs/CLI-Bank/Content/aos8/disatr-recov.htm

    That will allow you to change the config. You can try pointing it to another master, or just run it standalone.

    So, let us know what you end up doing.

    Are there CLI commands that can change the mode to standalone, or does that require a factory reset?
