Configuring IAP for Airwave Discovery using DHCP on Linux Server

We are looking to migrate our DHCP service from an Aruba OS switch to a Linux server as it is more scalable.

Does anyone know the correct syntax for DHCP option 43 on a Linux server ?

 

Below is sample config we were using on Aruba OS switch:

 

dhcp-server pool "East-Quad"
default-router "10.10.1.1"
network 10.10.1.0 255.255.255.0
option 43 ascii "Eastquad,10.80.2.201,secret123"
option 60 ascii "ArubaInstantAP"
range 10.10.1.10 10.10.1.100
exit

 

Below is a sample dhcp.conf file on linux server, but how would I include Airwave Group and Airwave Pre Shared Key ?

 

option serverip code 43 = ip-address;

class "vendor-class" {

match option vendor-class-identifier;
}

subnet 10.10.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {

default-lease-time 200;

max-lease-time 200;

option subnet-mask 255.255.255.0;

option routers 10.10.1.1;

subclass "vendor-class" "ArubaInstantAP" {

option vendor-class-identifier "ArubaInstantAP";
#
# option serverip <loopback-IP-address-of-master-controller>

#
option serverip 10.80.2.201;
}
range 10.10.1.10 10.10.1.100;
}

Re: Configuring IAP for Airwave Discovery using DHCP on Linux Server

Hi Marcel, I've seen that link before but it does not show how you would include the Airwave Group or Airwave pre-shared key.

 

option 43 ascii "group,10.80.2.201,secret1" 

 

Im looking for the equivalent config of option 43 above from an Aruba OS Switch but on a linux server ?
