AirGroup in v8.4 | Devices not showing in WLAN

We have been using an Instant AP cluster for some time and are in the process of evaluating a controller based Aruba solution. A key criteria is the AirGroup feature, which I cannot get to work.


My trial hardware is a 7005 with two AP-225 and I have tried both v8.1 and v8.4. I have followed the outlined steps as shown in this PDF, except for the CPPM part:


The 'show airgroup servers' gives me plenty of mDNS and DLNA systems in our network, but I cannot access them over the SSID. What am I missing?

I have created a new profile, "CampusHH", in the MM context and added default AirGroup services to this profile.

I have disallowed a certain VLAN id for users and attached the profile to the node using "airgrouprofile activate" in the node context.

I have created a new SSID with VLAN 1204 on the node.


This is the profile. What irritates me is the disallow-role "" type servers service "", just because I did not put it there. Is this a default?



airgroupprofile "CampusHH"
    service "default-airplay"
    service "default-airprint"
    service "default-dlna-media"
    service "default-allowall"
    disallow-vlan  type servers service ""
    disallow-vlan 903 type users service ""
    disallow-role "" type servers service ""

The airgroup status shows:

*[mynode] #show airgroup status
