Product and Software: This article applies to all Aruba controllers and ArubaOS 2.x and 3.x code.


The dump server is a TFTP server that is used by AP to dump the core in event of process crash on the AP.


In the ArubaOS 2.x release, it is configured under ap location, and in the ArubaOS 3.x release, it is configurable under ap system profile.

ArubaOS 3.x:



CLI Examples


ArubaOS 2.x: 

(Aruba5000) #configure t 

(Aruba5000) (config) #ap location 0.0.0 

(Aruba5000) (sap-config location 0.0.0) #dump-server <ip_address_of_tftp_server>


ArubaOS 3.x:

(Aruba5000) #configure t

(Aruba5000) (config) #ap system-profile default 

(Aruba5000) (AP system profile "default") #dump-server <ip_address_of_tftp_server>




ArubaOS 2.x :

Browse to Configuration > Advanced > WLAN > General > and configure the IP address of the TFTP server to be used as the dump server under "AP debugging and logging".

Just to clarify, the option of configuring "dump-server" in AP System Profile applies to all codes after 3.x, including 5.x and 6.x.
