Aruba 2930 + Central

Good day community!


I need help with a switch in which I'm working.


My switch has multiple vlan interfaces and some of them are not allow to pass through my firewall. I am trying to bring this switch to central but I don´t know how.


Is there any way to force a source interface when the switch is trying to reach central?


For example: All my request going to central will have as source the interface VLAN 100

To designate a specific VLAN to be used for connections to Aruba Activate, Central, and AirWave, you need to use the primary-vlan command, as in the example below:


switch(config)# primary-vlan 100

If a primary VLAN is not configured, the switch will attempt to use VLAN 1 for all connections to these platforms.

Good day community!


Thanks a lot for your answer! I will be testing this configuration with the customer any time now.


I tried the configuration of ip source but I didn't work. For some reason I was specifying the interface to be VLAN 1 and I wasn't getting an aswer back. I even create and allow a new IP with privileges to access the network and didn't work.
