Airwave - How to add a stack of 2920 switches

Hi all,

Have some spare Airwave licences so was trying out Airwave management/monitoring of 2920s running the latest Aruba-branded firmware.  Works well!

Now, in production we have stacks, not individual switches and this is where by problems start.  With the individual switches I was manually adding them in Airwave and it was detecting the correct template for the switch.  With the stacks I just can't get it to detect anything and I don't know how to manually map atemplate to a device.

I just get a device added that is always down and config is never collected.

Any tips or suggestions please?

Thanks a lot.

Hi Toby,


This should be simular as adding a normal switch. Aruba has optimed switch management in the latest AirWave firmwares. I will advise to upgrade AirWave to the latest firmware (


Are you sure SNMP configured correctly (and allowed in the firewall(s)? Normally a device should up if ping is allowed and also if the device type is unknown. I think the traffic is not allowed from AirWave to the switches.

Thanks Willem.

Having looked into it deeper it does appear to be an issue with traffic between AirWave and the switch stack - rather than a problem with AirWave or my process.
