This is excellent... but I really wish it was under say... 100 pages?

Thanks Jamie. One request though. Please provide a proper download link too if you embed the pdf like you did here. This would be helpful for people (like me) that have disabled in-browser pdf's.

I second Koen’s request for a different reason, if you are browsing via mobile (specifically iOS) you can’t even view anything beyond the first page.

Thanks Jamie!



Hello Jamie!


I think, there's an error at page 21 item 5:

"Standalone Mode functions in the same manner in ArubaOS 8 as it does in ArubaOS 6. It is supported on hardware-based controllers only"

As I know, you can deploy standalone on VM.

Which parameters is required for manually add a mobility controller on mobility master?
