    Hello all, 
    When I change the password of one SSID via GUI, all the clients that where asociated with the old password stills conected even if we restart client devices and they reconects to the SSID with the old Password.And also some of the new devices can connect with new wifi password.Any idea why is this Happening?

    thats weird, what AP model and firmware version are you using?

    If my post was useful accept solution and/or give kudos.
    Any opinions expressed here are solely my own and not necessarily that of HPE or Aruba.

    When changing the password for a Wi-Fi network via the GUI, you may continue to connect with the old password due to caching on their devices, incorrect password updates, network roaming between access points with different configurations, MAC address whitelisting, DNS cache issues, or device-specific limitations.

    To resolve this, you should clear cached Wi-Fi networks on client devices, reboot the router or access point, update firmware, ensure consistent network configurations, and, if applicable, update MAC address whitelists. If the problem persists on specific devices, contacting the device manufacturer's support or forums for device-specific troubleshooting may be necessary.
