Cable Testing using Aruba Central
11-25-2019 03:43 AM
We can run cli command to a switch to detect cable faults. If the switch is cloud managed in Aruba Central we can use the GUI to test the cable.
- Aruba Central - AUTO-ATH-2.4.9-687-P
- 2930F switch
My AP is connected to port 4 of 2930F with 4 meters cable. I will check if I have cable faults using Aruba Central.
1. Under Maintenance > Tools > Device Check . Run "Cable Test" to a selected switch.
2. Refresh the page to see the test results.
3. Or you can laso check the cable test result by issuing show cable-diagnostics. Maintenance > Tools > Adanced.
Based on the test result my cable is good and also it confirmed that it is 4 meters long. Very useful command to test layer 1.
