Trying to setup Aruba Switches (S1500 and S3500) with Airwave (8.0.9). Ideally I'd like to hook them up, run through the wizard, which dumps them in a Group, and push a template to it. The template is built and includes all the VLANs, Wired Roles, authentication servers, etc… but not interface port specific settings (I can manually set those later). I also have a switch config which I imported from another switch I want in the same group.
What happens right now is the switch gets in the group and when I push the config the switch config overrides everything and tries to setup each port identical from where I imported the information (even a 48 port onto a 24 port). If I then blank out the GigabitEthernet Interfaces - it erases all the ports and breaks my other initial switch completely.
Am I supposed to create overrides (AP overrides?) for all interfaces for each switch in that group?
Should I have a group for only identical switches? (We have 285 switches, all unique, is it just us?)
Should I just not use AirWave for this and stick to copy/paste to deploy?
My hope was going forward if we change a port for an event and forget to change it back I'll have a glaring 'Mismatched' switch to remind me.
