Same SSID with different SSID profile settings (One AP group Hide SSID, another AP Group Unhide)
01-17-2019 12:08 AM
We recently deployed Aruba 7010 controler version 188.8.131.52 for customer.
They have requirement to set Same SSID with different SSID profile settings which is Level 1 floor and Level 2 floor have to hide the SSID, while level 3 floor require unhide SSID. I have group the AP to different AP group by level (level 1 , Level 2 , Level 3) .
I tried create different SSID profile applied to AP group but once i applied new SSID profile (with unhide SSID setting, existing SSID profile with hide SSID) , the other AP group SSID profile will became new SSID profile also.
Is it possible to configure Same SSID with different AP group different SSID profile settings? (Hide & unhide) How to do it?
Thanks for advise.

Make sure that you have two Virtual AP profiles (named differently) and two SSID profiles (named different). First, make sure that the Virtual AP profiles have the same configuration, then change to the other SSID profile in which you can then set the Network Name (SSID) to the same value, but broadcast different. Somewhat confusing is that the profiles are named to the SSID; which is good in general as it is easy to recognized.
As an example (schematic):
virtual-ap MySSID aaa profile MySSID_aaa-prof ssid profile MySSID_ssid_prof SSID: MySSID (other profiles) virtual-ap MySSID-hidden aaa profile MySSID_aaa-prof ssid profile MySSID-hidden_ssid_prof SSID: MySSID (other profiles)
The easiest way is to use the save as feature in the WebUI, do that both for the virtual-ap and the SSID profile.
