Product and Software: This article applies to Aruba RAP-2G and all ArubaOS versions.

RAP-2WG is designed to be deployed across Layer 3 networks. If any of these APs is connected directly to Aruba switch by design, it will not come up. It shows in the AP database as inactive (indicated by 'I' flag) and unlicensed (indicated by 'L' flag) as shown here:
