1. Group Cloning is on the roadmap. 

2. I am unclear about the folder structure request. You should be able to sort APs from the Monitoring -> Access Points page. Please help me understand.


Under the Andrei group (attached) you can see my AP, I am referring to adding folders under Andrei. If have a 5 different locations and would like to group my APs according to location by using folders.

 

I can then easily navigate to the AP I want from there and it should bring me to the Access Point page.

 

p.s. I can never attached pictures, it always says my post exceeds 20,000 characters/...

Re: Aruba Central account and IAP Activation key

Got it....let me describe the way I see your use case and you can tell me if this would suffice your requirement for now....

 

1. The entries you see under each group in the left hand pane are for the Virtual Controllers (VC).

2. You can click on the Virtual controller in the left hand pane and this will change the context in the main pane to be specific to that particular VC. So in other words...this would be analogous to the folder heirarchy you are mentioning.

 

Assuming that you have 1 cluster (1 virtual controller with multiple APs) per location...the Virtual controller entry in the left hand pane under the group..becomes your folder! This enables you to share configuration across multiple virtual controllers (within a group) while giving you the flexibility to view information on a per VC basis.

Perfect. Exactly. Said it better than I did

I made the mistake of assuming those were APs to the left but yes they are VCs.


"Assuming that you have 1 cluster (1 virtual controller with multiple APs) per location...the Virtual controller entry in the left hand pane under the group..becomes your folder! This enables you to share configuration across multiple virtual controllers (within a group) while giving you the flexibility to view information on a per VC basis."
The group then would be for the customer and the VCs below it will be for individual locations for that customer. What happens if I don't name my VC appropriately and leave the default.
I have no way of identifying which VC is for which location.

If I had:
Group A
Site A
VC
Site B
VC
.
.
.
This would allow greater granularity.

Does this make sense?

Thanks,

Still can't add devices...  I am sure someone is working on it and all but maybe they could post some status updates?

Re: Aruba Central account and IAP Activation key

Has anyone noticed that when you remove a license from an AP, it takes a very long time for that AP to become unmanaged?

It has been 20 min since I removed the license from Central and I still cannot make any changes on the AP itself

Re: Aruba Central account and IAP Activation key

Still not manageable.
Since rebooting the AP via the CLI is allowed (not allowed in the webui)
I rebooted it and now I can manage it.
