By Default Aruba Instant access points will be contacting Activate server irrespective if access points are manged via Activate to provision them in Central / Airwave.



Starting from Aruba instant, we have ability to stop Aruba instant access points contacting activate.



Below commands will help to disable IAP contacting activate,

9c:8c:d8:c9:39:52# configure 

We now support CLI commit model, please type "commit apply" for configuration to take effect.

9c:8c:d8:c9:39:52 (config) # activate-disable 

Once we enable this knob, IAP's will be no longer manged in Aruba central also we can't provision any rules in activate.


9c:8c:d8:c9:39:52 (config) # no activate-disable   -------------> To enable the activate service again.
