ArubaOS and Controllers


Purpose loopback ip address?

Why would I configure a loopback ip address? Whats the advantage of using it over a standard vlan ip address?

Re: Purpose loopback ip address?

It was to specify a specific address for controller management functions. Since the controller-ip command in ArubaOs 3.4 where you can specify the controller vlan, it is not needed.
