SSID Profiles

Forgive me if this is a rudimentary question as I am still getting used to Aruba.

 

If I see a SSID profile that is part of a VAP profile and AP group and has this configuration:

 

g-basic-rates 5 6

 

Does that mean that only 5 Mbps and 6Mbps are supported on that SSID for 2.4Ghz and no 5Ghz support exists?

Thank you.

Re: SSID Profiles

That is correct, you should see an entry for the supported A rates as well.

You can check with the following command:

 

show wlan  ssid-profile [SSID NAME]
-- TRUNCATED --
802.11a Basic Rates                               12 24
802.11a Transmit Rates                            12 24 36 48 54
802.11g Basic Rates                               12 24
802.11g Transmit Rates                            12 24 36 48 54

 


ACMP, ACSA, ACDX #985

Re: SSID Profiles

Thanks.  Just to make sure I understand, if I see something like this in an AP group:

 

ap-group "BLAH"
virtual-ap "blah-VAP"
!

wlan virtual-ap "blah-VAP"
aaa-profile "blah-MAC-Auth"
ssid-profile "blah"
vlan xxx

!

wlan ssid-profile "blah"
essid "blah"
opmode wpa-psk-tkip wpa2-psk-aes
wpa-passphrase blahblahblah

 

This ssid isn't being used at all since there are no supported 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz data rates?

todbass10,

 

"show running-configuration typically only shows anything that differs from the defaults.   There is definitely more parameters configured. You would have to type "show wlan ssid profile <ssid profile>" to see exactly what is configured.

Re: SSID Profiles

Well that is inconvenient from Aruba.  Thank you for your help!

If the show-running configuration showed everything, It would  be 10 times as long!

Re: SSID Profiles

I would be okay with that.  Unless there is a better solution to what I'm trying to do.  I'm looking at someones controller configuration to give some best practice recommendations.  Having to ask them to run 15 commands isn't very convenient.  Is there a better way to pull all the data?

Re: SSID Profiles

There is no command that shows every parameter in the configuration.

 

Internally at Aruba we use Visualcfg to audit configurations: https://support.arubanetworks.com/ToolsResources/tabid/76/DMXModule/514/EntryId/11880/Default.aspx

 

Maybe it will work for you.

Re: SSID Profiles

Bummer.  There should be.

 

I am using VisualCfg to review the config.  

 

Thanks again.
