Find controller IP to access management gui on a used controller

Hi!  I'm new to Aruba or should I say system admin itself.

 

I inherited a 3200XM controller and few AP-135s at work that I want to deploy to another office.

 

I want to access the web gui but I do not know what IP the controller is set to?  I have the access to console but it's locked out of privilege commands and I do not have the enable password.  Previous system admins have left the company.

 

I plugged my laptop to the eth0 of the controller and try IP scanning 10.10.x.x but still failed to find the IP.  

 

Would appreciate any suggestion.

 

Thank you!

Reset the password via the console: 

If you have forgotten or lost your Aruba Controllers Password it can be reset following the bellow steps.

 

  1. Connect to the cotroller via Console cable
  2. Login using "password" as the user name and use "forgetme!" as the password.
  3. Type "enable" to enter the enable mode
  4. Type "conf term" to enter configuration mode
  5. In configuration mode, enter ‘mgmt-user admin root’ and reset the password
  6. Re-login using the new admin password you just set.
  7. Enter "enable" and then "conf term" to enter configuration mode
  8. Type ‘enable secret’ reset the enable mode password.
  9. Lastly perform a "write mem" to save your new passwords and make it persistent

You can the use the following to obtain the client IP.

 

(Aruba7030) #show controller-ip

Switch IP Address: 192.168.1.99

Switch IP is configured to be Vlan Interface: 1

Switch IPv6 address is not configured.

Thank you Craig!

I do have access to console but it's locked out of privilege commands which renders the console pretty much useless.  

:(

 

If it was set to vlan1, would I still be able to access it in a non-vlan environment (such home network)?

You would however you'd need to make sure it is in the right IP range. Is this a production controller?

Re: Find controller IP to access management gui on a used controller

The console password reset worked!!!  Thank you Craig!!!

 

The output for the show command is:

Switch IP Address: 10.10.50.2

Switch IP is from Loopback interface

Switch IPv6 address is not configured.

 

So I connected controller's eth0 to my laptop. 

Setting my laptop as 10.10.50.100 and still unable to access the web gui.

Make sure you have the subnet mask correct. There may also be ACL's applied
to a VLAN/interface as well. Use the below commands to verify which port + which VLANs are assigned.

show vlan status
show port status

Can you ping the .2 address?

Re: Find controller IP to access management gui on a used controller

Have you tried connecting to 10.10.50.3? Also see if you can SSH to the WLC. The default certificate was revoked, so depending on the browser being used the GUI may not be display at all. Don't forget your port 0 is still a trunk port.
