How to find owner of an AP

I bought a AP on EBay.

It seems the seller isn't the owner of the AP, because he can't erase it if Aruba central. 

If i connect the AP to the web, the AP kicked me out of the configuration site. 


Thank you you for helping me.

There is no configuration on the AP which you can erase to remove it from Central. If you log a ticket with Aruba TAC they can verify the owner and remove from Aruba Central if required.

If my post addresses your query, give kudos:)

Console into the AP, do a factory_reset  command, this will stop the AP looking for a particular address and delete all its settings.


It will then broadcast the SSID 'instant', connect to this, open a web browswer and login with admin & admin.


You can then configure the AP as you see fit.


Good luck!
