Referring to the Aruba 6.1 User Guide:
Can I create multiple "AP Configuration Profiles" (page 114) and give them different names?
How can I assign the different "AP Configuration Profiles" to different "AP Groups"? Where is this explained in the User Guide?
I noticed that I can assign a "Provisioning Profile" to an AP Group (page 129). Is the Provisioning Profile the same as the Configuration Profile? I don't think so.
I would appreciate someone's help on the above.
Solved! Go to Solution.

An AP configuration profile in the manual just describes ANY of a number of profiles that can be used to configure an AP. A provisioning profile is something that is used to add additional provisioning information, like for a USB modem, turn it into a RAP, or point it to a different master controller. This information is normally written into the flash of an AP and survives a reboot, as opposed to other parameters that are received when an AP is connected to a controller.

You're right, the documentation wasn't very clear. I've added some improvments that will appear in the ArubaOS 6.2 User Guide. Thanks for pointing this out!
