Sometimes you need to test MUX function, but there is no MUX controller available. You can convert an A2400 or A800 into a MUX controller, but this needs to be done via Shell mode, which is only available to the Aruba TAC team.


Within Shell mode:

Convert an A2400 into an A2400E:

#platid -c A24E

Convert an A800 into an A800E:

#platid -c A8E

To convert them back to an A2400 or an A800, you can do:

#platid -c A2400


#platid -c A800
