Small or home lab
11-10-2017 09:42 AM
I have questions about building a small lab for 8.x. I've searched through the forums and found that this topic has been discussed several times in the past, but none of the previous posts apply to my scenario.
I have several APs left over from a small deployment and would like to connect them to a Virtual Mobility Master for lab use with 8.x. Do I need to licenses even if I only have 1, 2 or 3 APs managed by the VMM? Do I need a VMC too, or can the VMM take care of everything in this small of a deployment?

The Mobility Master (MM) will NOT terminate any AP. To get the full ArubaOS 8 new architecture you will need at least one of each (Virtual/HW) Mobility Master, (Virtual/HW) Mobility Controller, Access Point and possible an ArubaOS switch if you want to do tunneled node.
Please try to consult your local Aruba SE if you need assistance to pick the right equipment for your lab.
