Certificate issue Aruba 650 controller

The controller is not allowing us to login,  we cannot  access to controller´s  web interface and create a guest-user with a managment user ( guest-provisioning role).

The browser show us a certificate error "This certificate has expired or is not yet valid"

The firmware  was updated recently from  6.1 to  version to solve the issue but the new firmware doesn´t solve the issue.

Could you help me to solve the issue?

Did you set the time on the controller or your management station?

Re: Certificate issue Aruba 650 controller

Please upgrade to or newer. The version has a revoked (and probably expired) certificate built in.


Starting, the controller will generate a self-signed certificate. Which will show an untrusted (instead of expired) certificate warning.


To get rid of the certificate warnings, you will need to install a trusted certificate. Check this post on the background on what happened between and That can be done on as well.


If you still have a valid support contract, you can get from the Aruba Support website.

If you have urgent issues, please contact your Aruba partner or Aruba TAC (click for contact details).
