Product and Software: This article applies to all Aruba controllers that run ArubaOS 5.x and later.


In RAP deployments, the IP addresses of the LMS and backup LMS should belong to the public IP address space. If the primary and backup controllers are unreachable, the RAP tries to reestablish the IPsec connection.


The number of IPsec retries before a RAP reboots is specified by the “number of IPsec retries” parameter of the AP system profile. (The default value is 360.) When the “number of IPsec retries” value is exceeded, the RAP reboots and tries to connect to the FQDN or IP address of the master controller specified in the RAP console page during the zero-touch provisioning.
