Station Ageout Time - Aruba Instant


A customer of mine is seeing a lot of issues with iOS and Android clients being forced to re-authenticate via captive portal quite regularly. For various reasons, we can't implement MAC caching.


I'm aware of the "Inactivity Timeout" setting in the SSID profile, but this only appears to apply to associated clients (similar to the "user idle timeout" setting in AOS).


Is there an equivalent of the "Station ageout time" in AOS that we can increase to mitigate this?


Many thanks,

Re: Station Ageout Time - Aruba Instant

Hi ,


Changing the inacitivity timeout shoudl help in mitigating the issue to an extend.


This will ensure user is not aged out of user table & stays in the post auth role for the duration specified  under this parameter.


So, users need not perform CP authentication while they are in the post-auth role.


I don't see any option to specify station ageout parameter even via CLI.
