How would you recommend that customers like myself determine which version of software to run? For their customers, Cisco identifies a "recommended" version based on stability.


I look forward to your thoughts.

Re: ArubaOS-Switch 16.07 released

All listed Software branches (16.07, 16.06, 16.05, 16.04 and 16.03) related to a given platform (KB), if/once published, can be considered stable (I mean: those branches software build passed Aruba's internal GA quality tests)...so it's a matter to understand (here Software Feature Matrix will help you to decide) which features you need and what software branch is the one that support that requested feature.


Example: I need DHCP Server Option 60 (and 150)...I've an Aruba 5400R zl2 at KB.16.05.0007...checking the Software Matrix Feature Support...I discover that feature was introduced on KB.16.06 software branch (exactly since KB.16.06.0006 initial build), I need to update my switch accordingly instead of updating it within the KB.16.05 (which should be good to...if I didn't need said feature).
