Interesting Airwave Version differences OVA

Dear all,


I would like know why the higher Version number of the OVA file is "older" than the lower version number. Please see below and check the release dates and also their sizes.

I see what you mean. On the old Aruba support website, the information is clear on


This is a U.S. Federal Only Release 
This MAJOR release has new resource requirements to align with its hardware appliance counterpart. Please download and read AirWave Federal Server Sizing Guide before installing. Do not install unless you meet the resource requirements. 


On the new Aruba Support Portal, this message is missing or at least to say not as clear. I'll report this back to see if that can be solved.


In your case, unless you are required to be on that US Federal release, use the 8.2.8.x release, so the highest version number.

If you have urgent issues, please contact your Aruba partner or Aruba TAC (click for contact details).
