Aruba Access Point DNS problem

Hi all,

hope that's the correct location for my question.


We have some Aruba IAP 207 devices with DHCP in our wireless management vlan connected. The IAP's receive an ip address, gateway and so on. Everythin look's good.


The problem is that i'm not able to resolve the name of the IAP's to the ip address and reverse. So there is a problem with the DNS registration. Only the Master-AccessPoint is registered to the DNS Server and could be resolved from name to ip and reverse.


Is that a normal behaviour?


Thanks and best regards,

I am not sure if that is expected to work, because all APs can only be configured through the Master or Virtual AP in a cluster.

Re: Aruba Access Point DNS problem

Hi, thanks for you reply.

I think that too. That would be explain why i can only see the master access point in my dns zone.


The reason why i need the dns entry is because of the monitoring. I want to check if all devices are up. Do you know if there is a way i can check if all devices are up?
