Product and Software: This article applies to all controllers running RN code series.


The provisioning profile consists of the settings that will be pushed to an AP when the AP comes up on the controller. These settings are the same as those that were present in the regular ArubaOS codes under the GUI > AP Installation provisioning section of an AP.

In the RN code, the provisioning profile consists of the following parameters:

Remote-AP                  Whether the AP would have to be a RAP
Master IP/FQDN           What is the Master IP for this AP
Domain Name              Domain name (optional)
PPPOE User Name        What should be the username for L2TP
PPPOE Password           What should be the password for L2TP
PPPOE Service Name     Service Provider name (optional)
USB User Name            If 3G, what is the username
USB Password              If 3G, what is the password
USB Device Type          If 3G, what is the Model of the 3G
USB Device Identifier    If 3G, what is the Device ID
USB Dial String            If 3G, what is the Dial in pass key
USB Initialization String
USB TTY device path

Note: Passwords always appear as '*' when provisioning from the GUI. Take care when you provision, because if the APs have the wrong details, they become inaccessible, because they cannot contact the Aruba controller.
