6.5 to Aruba OS 8

Hello guys

I have the fallowing scenario

 

I have 2 7210 with 250 APS with centralized license 

 

I got Master-stand by config and the APS terminates in those controllers

and the client need to add a few outdoor APS to an specific area.  For that he needs to go for version 8. because the AP 375 just support aruba OS 8

 

As far i understand the master cannot terminate APS as it would act as a Aruba mobility master.   

So i see i got 3 options:

1- that the client get an aruba mobility master in VM which will be really hard to do that this year

2-that the client configure one controller as master and the other as local(he would loose redundancy)

3-Configiure both controllers as stand alone(which can terminates APS in ARUBA OS 8) and put them in HA 

 

Right now im interested in option 3, if this is an option.  Is there a way to do an easy migration to that option? 

We will do option 1 most likely

The 2 7210s can be configured with Master Redundancy, just like 6.5

Re: 6.5 to Aruba OS 8

Hello Collin

What about the AP termination? i need to terminate 250 aps in those controllers

 

What will happen if i have a master local config with VRRP and i just upgrade it from 6.5 to 8

The master standby config i used was this one

Example config

 

vrrp 1
priority 120
ip address 192.168.5.10
vlan 5
authentication aruba123
description Preferred-Master
tracking master-up-time 30 add 20
no shutdown
!
master-redundancy
master-vrrp 1
peer-ip-address 192.168.5.2 ipsec aruba123

AND THE BACKUP CONTROLLER WITH TIHS CONFIG 
vrrp 1
priority 100
ip address 192.168.5.10
vlan 5
authentication aruba123
description Backup-Master
tracking master-up-time 30 add 20
no shutdown
!
master-redundancy
master-vrrp 1
peer-ip-address 192.168.5.1 ipsec aruba123

Re: 6.5 to Aruba OS 8

If you upgrade from 6.5 to 8.x, the controller configuration is wiped and you have to start from scratch.

 

Your configuration there should be fine.  You should test everything out in the lab, of course.

Yes.  Have you seen the Migration to ArubaOS 8 Chapter in the ArubaOS 8 Fundamentals Guide here?:  https://www.arubanetworks.com/assets/atmosphere/2018-Airheads/Fundamentals%20Guide%20-%20ArubaOS%208%20Fundamentals.pdf
