Syntax

Parameter

Description

Default

ap-name <profile-name>

Configures an AP name. Give a name that identifies the AP. By default, the name of an AP can either be its EthernetEthernet is a network protocol for data transmission over LAN. MACMedia Access Control. A MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on a network. address, or if the AP has been previously provisioned with an earlier version of ArubaOS, a name in the format <building>.<floor>.<location>. The name must be 1–63 characters long.

am-filter-profile

<profile-name>

Configures AMAir Monitor. AM is a mode of operation supported on wireless APs. When an AP operates in the Air Monitor mode, it enhances the wireless networks by collecting statistics, monitoring traffic, detecting intrusions, enforcing security policies, balancing wireless traffic load, self-healing coverage gaps, and more. However, clients cannot connect to APs operating in the AM mode. filter profile.

default

am-multizone-profile

<profile-name>

Configures AP MultiZone profile.

default

ap-system-profile

<profile-name>

Configures AP administrative operations, such as logging levels. See ap system-profile.

authorization-profile

<profile-name>

Restrictive group for unauthorized AP.

dot11a-radio-profile

<profile-name>

Configures 802.11a802.11a provides specifications for wireless systems. Networks using 802.11a operate at radio frequencies in the 5 GHz band. The specification uses a modulation scheme known as orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) that is especially well suited to use in office settings. The maximum data transfer rate is 54 Mbps. radio settings for the AP group; contains the ARMAdaptive Radio Management. ARM dynamically monitors and adjusts the network to ensure that all users are allowed ready access. It enables full utilization of the available spectrum to support maximum number of users by intelligently choosing the best RF channel and transmit power for APs in their current RF environment. profile. See rf dot11a-radio-profile.

default

dot11a-traffic-mgmt-profile

<profile-name>

Configures bandwidth allocation. See wlan traffic-management-profile.

default

dot11g-radio-profile

<profile-name>

Configures 802.11g802.11g offers transmission over relatively short distances at up to 54 Mbps, compared with the 11 Mbps theoretical maximum of 802.11b standard. 802.11g employs Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM), the modulation scheme used in 802.11a, to obtain higher data speed. Computers or terminals set up for 802.11g can fall back to speed of 11 Mbps, so that 802.11b and 802.11g devices can be compatible within a single network. radio settings for the AP group; contains the ARMAdaptive Radio Management.

See rf dot11g-radio-profile.

default

dot11g-traffic-mgmt-profile

<profile-name>

Configures bandwidth allocation. See wlan traffic-management-profile.

default

enet0-profile

Configures the duplex and speed of the EthernetEthernet is a network protocol for data transmission over LAN. 0 interface on the AP. See ap enet-link-profile.

default

enet1-profile

<profile-name>

Configures the duplex and speed of the EthernetEthernet is a network protocol for data transmission over LAN. 1 interface on the AP. See ap enet-link-profile.

default

enet2-profile

<profile-name>

Configures the duplex and speed of the EthernetEthernet is a network protocol for data transmission over LAN. 2 interface on the AP. See ap enet-link-profile.

default

enet3-profile

<profile-name>

Configures the duplex and speed of the EthernetEthernet is a network protocol for data transmission over LAN. 3 interface on the AP. See ap enet-link-profile.

default

enet4-profile

<profile-name>

Configures the duplex and speed of the EthernetEthernet is a network protocol for data transmission over LAN. 4 interface on the AP. See ap enet-link-profile.

default

event-thresholds-profile

<profile-name>

Configures Received Signal Strength Indication (RSSIReceived Signal Strength Indicator. RSSI is a mechanism by which RF energy is measured by the circuitry on a wireless NIC (0-255). The RSSI is not standard across vendors. Each vendor determines its own RSSI scale/values.) metrics. See rf event-thresholds-profile.

default

exclude-mesh-cluster-profile-ap <profile-name>

Excludes the specified mesh cluster profile from this AP.

The Secure Enterprise Mesh license must be installed.

exclude-virtual-ap

<profile-name>

Excludes the specified virtual AP profiles from this AP.

ids-profile

<profile-name>

Configures Aruba’s IDSIntrusion Detection System. IDS monitors a network or systems for malicious activity or policy violations and reports its findings to the management system deployed in the network.. See ids profile.

default

mesh-cluster-profile

<profile-name>

Configures the mesh cluster profile for the AP (mesh node). There is a “default” mesh cluster profile; however, it is not applied until you provision the mesh node. See ap mesh-cluster-profile.

The Secure Enterprise Mesh license must be installed.

default

priority <priority>

Configures the priority of the mesh cluster profile. If more than two mesh cluster profiles are configured, mesh points use this number to identify primary and backup profile(s).

The supported range of values is 1–16. The lower the number, the higher the priority.

1

mesh-radio-profile

<profile-name>

Configures the 802.11g802.11g offers transmission over relatively short distances at up to 54 Mbps, compared with the 11 Mbps theoretical maximum of 802.11b standard. 802.11g employs Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM), the modulation scheme used in 802.11a, to obtain higher data speed.

regulatory-domain-profile

<profile-name>

Configures the country code and valid channels. See ap regulatory-domain-profile.

default

rf-optimization-profile

<profile-name>

Configures load balancing and coverage hole and interference detection. See rf optimization-profile.

default

virtual-ap <profile-name>

One or more profiles, each of which configures a specified WLANWireless Local Area Network. WLAN is a 802.11 standards-based LAN that the users access through a wireless connection.. See wlan virtual-ap.

default

Usage Guidelines

Profiles that are applied to an AP group can be overridden on a per-AP name basis, and virtual APs can be added or excluded on a per-AP name basis. If a particular profile is overridden for an AP, all parameters from the overriding profile are used. There is no merging of individual parameters between the AP and the AP group to which the AP belongs.

Example

The following command excludes a virtual AP profile from a specific AP:

(host) [mynode] (config) #ap-name 00:0b:86:c0:cf:d8

(host) [mynode] (AP name "00:0b:86:c0:cf:d") #exclude-virtual-ap corpnet
