MVP Expert

Requirement:

The Aruba controller/ Virtual Machine must be running AOS: 8.2.x or above



Solution:

Starting from 8.2.x we can manipulate the groups using new CLI commands

 



Configuration:

Syntax:

configuration rename <old-path of the group>  <new-path of the group>

Example:

1. Log in to /md

(ArubaMM-VA) [mm] #cd md
(ArubaMM-VA) [md] #pwd
/md
(ArubaMM-VA) *[md] #configure terminal
Enter Configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z

(ArubaMM-VA) *[md] (config) #configuration rename /md/Test-Group /md/Test

 



Verification

Before rename:

Current Groups:

(ArubaMM-VA)  [mm] #show configuration node-hierarchy

Default-node is not configured. Autopark is disabled.

Config Node                        Type    Name
-----------                        ----    ----
/                                  System
/md                                System
/md/00:0b:86:b8:a9:f8              Device
/md/Hw-Cluster                     Group
/md/Hw-Cluster/00:0b:86:dd:4d:60   Device  HW-Cluster-1
/md/Test-Group                     Group
/md/VMC-Cluster                    Group
/md/VMC-Cluster/00:50:56:9f:50:c9  Device  VMC-Cluster-3
/md/VMC-Cluster/00:50:56:9f:53:47  Device  VMC-Cluster-2
/mm                                System
/mm/mynode                         System

After Rename:

(ArubaMM-VA) [md] #show configuration node-hierarchy
