How to create an SSID without using the wizard?



I am somewhat new to Aruba and while the WLAN wizard has been successful, I would like to create an SSID without the help of the wizard. I believe that this would help my understanding of what is needed and increase my ability to troubleshoot if I knew what the wizard was doing/creating. What is the order of creating all the profiles, acls, VAPs? If there is a tutorial that already exists I could not find it and could you please point me there?

In addition to what Colin referenced, take a look at the following:


1. https://ase.arubanetworks.com/solutions/id/45 - This is a browser driven configuration generator that will ask questions and provide the CLI Configuration. Good way to learn.


2. From the CLI on the controller, issue a "show profile-hierarchy" and you will see how the profiles are referenced.
