BSSID information in AOS8.5 GUI

Hello all, 

 

is there a way to view the BSSID information for an AP from the AOS8.5 GUI? we need this information for a voice product and need an easy way to gather it. The person in charge is not comfortable with going into CLI to get the info. 

 

thank you

Navigate to Dashboard > Overview and click on the Radio icon.

Please refer the AOS 8.5 user-guide (Page 398)

 

https://support.arubanetworks.com/Documentation/tabid/77/DMXModule/512/Default.aspx?EntryId=34189

 

They give the information for each radio(This can be filtered further for the AP that the device connects to. The Radio is the fourth icon). This is more or less equivalent to the cli command "show ap bss-table"

Re: BSSID information in AOS8.5 GUI

How many SSIDs are being broadcast and on which radios?

 

The BSSID is dynamically generated based on the mac-address of the AP.

 

This post may shed some light on it.

on another note,

 

If you have the mac address of the AP then this link can be used to calculate the BSSIDs for Aruba APs.
