Checking SSID's In Aruba

Folks, good morning!  First, I'm brand new to Aruba wireless.  I come from a Cisco background with regards to wireless access.  I was handed an Aruba wireless environment to work on.  There are 3 SSID's.  There is an Aruba AMP portal.  Here are my questions:

 

1) Where do you create/check on SSID's?  

2) Is AMP the equivalent of Cisco PRIME when it comes to wireless?

 

Any help would be much appreciated!

Re: Checking SSID's In Aruba

It all depends on if you have a controller-based network or an Aruba Instant-based network.
Your AMP (Airwave) instance can be responsible for just monitoring those devices or configuration, as well.

You can think of AMP as Aruba/HPE's version of Cisco Prime except that AMP can monitor multivendor networks, including Cisco.

Re: Checking SSID's In Aruba

Hi,

 

could you give more information on this:

- which version of code are you running?

- controller or controllerless (Instant) environment?
- Which version of AMP are you running?

- What do you want to archieve in detail?

 

We have many technical information sources, like...

https://ase.arubanetworks.com/

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFJCnuXFGfEbwEzfcgU_ERQ 

or this community, but that you are aware of.

 

AMP = AirWave Management Platform - yes it is similar to prime...but better :-)

Re: Checking SSID's In Aruba

Thank you for your answer!  To be fully transparent, I haven't a clue what type of aruba environment we have.  I just know that the AP's are broadcasting the SSID's.  I'm assuming it's a controllerless environment, since they did not give me information on a controller.  What I'm looking for, is to get into the configuration of the SSID's to take a look.  For instance, in Cisco, on the controller, you go to WLAN, and you setup or take a look at your SSID's/groups there.  

 

We are running AMP 8.0.10

- controller or controllerless (Instant) environment? Assuming controllerless
- Which version of AMP are you running? 8.0.10

- What do you want to archieve in detail?  I'm trying to go into the SSID configuratoin.  I'd like to understand how the wireless environment is set up

You will find training videos here - 

https://www.arubanetworks.com/products/networking/aruba-instant/instant-training/

 

Here you will find the documentation for Instant - 

https://support.arubanetworks.com/Documentation/tabid/77/DMXModule/512/EntryId/21916/Default.aspx

 

Here you will find the documentation for AMP - 

https://support.arubanetworks.com/Documentation/tabid/77/DMXModule/512/EntryId/14096/Default.aspx

 

Not one of the newest Releases which are installed.

AMP version is from 2014

Instant from 2017

 

The Software Version on Wireless is not supported by the used AMP version. There you have to upgrade at least to AMP version 8.2.x

In AMP/Airwave, click on the access point and see if there is a hyperlink to the controller.  Click on the controller to see if it has an IP address.  Try to web into or SSH into the controller's ip address.

Re: Checking SSID's In Aruba

Ok, I see!  So I clicked on an AP.  It showed a "VC", so I'm assuming that's a virtual controller that had a hyperlink.  I clicked on the hyperlink, was able to sign in with the same creds as AMP.  Now I see where the SSID's are, and can click edit.  Here's another question for you.  To create a new SSID, would I have to do this on every AP?

Just on the VC.
