Quickly convert instants to campus APs?

Hi,

 

I have a somewhat-large quantity of AP-303H's that I'd like to provision as Campus APs associated with our 7220 controllers.

 

Is there a way to do this without manually connecting to the SetMeUp SSID and converting each and every one? Like a DHCP option perhaps?

 

Thanks!

You can try:

 

Plugging them all in at the same time so they form an Instant Cluster.

Use the convert option to convert the entire cluster by pointing them at the controller..

Aruba will tell you not to put so many in a cluster - but I was just clustering in order to convert them all. Was able to convert 146 at a time.
