Product and Software: This article applies to all Aruba controllers and ArubaOS 3.x and later.


In ArubaOS you can create a priority map and map the DSCP and dot1p priority markings as per your requirements. Then you can map this traffic prioritization policy to an interface, VLAN, or a port channel as needed.


Create a priority-map named "test".

(Aruba) (config)#priority-maptest
(Aruba) (config-priority-map)#dot1p 7 high
(Aruba) (config-priority-map)#dscp 46 high

Apply to a VLAN.
(Aruba) (config)#interface vlan 1
(Aruba) (config-subif)#priority-map test

Apply to a port.
(Aruba) (config)#interface fastethernet 1/1
(Aruba) (config-if)#priority-map test

Apply to a port channel.
(Aruba) (config)#interface port-channel 1
(Aruba) (config-channel)#priority-map test
