Downloadable Regulatory Table

The downloadable regulatory table feature allows for the update of country domain options without upgrading the ArubaOS software version. A separate file, called the Regulatory-Cert, containing AP regulatory information will be released periodically on the customer support site. The Regulatory-Cert file can then be uploaded to a managed device and pushed to deployed APs.

The Regulatory-Cert includes the following information for each AP:

This section describes the following topics:

Important Points to Remember

When a Regulatory-Cert is activated, the new file is checked against the default file built into ArubaOS. If the file is of a newer version, the activation is allowed. If the file is of a lower version, then the activation is not completed. The CLI Command-Line Interface.

Failed to activate regulatory file reg-data-1.0_00002.txt. File Version should be greater than 1.0_43859

Copying the Regulatory-Cert

You can use the following protocols to copy the regulatory file to a managed device:

The following procedure describes how to copy the Regulatory-Cert to the managed device.

  1. In the Mobility Master > host node hierarchy, navigate to the Diagnostics > Technical Support > Copy Files tab.
  2. Select the source (TFTP Trivial File Transfer Protocol. The TFTP is a software utility for transferring files from or to a remote host. , FTP File Transfer Protocol.

  3. The managed device WebUI will automatically select Flash File System under the Destination Selection menu.
  4. Click Copy.

The following CLI Command-Line Interface. A console interface with a command line shell that allows users to execute text input as commands and convert these commands to appropriate functions. command downloads the regulatory file to the managed device:

tftp: <tftphost> <filename> flash: <destfilename>

usb: partition <partition-number> <filename> flash: <destfilename>

The following CLI Command-Line Interface. A console interface with a command line shell that allows users to execute text input as commands and convert these commands to appropriate functions. command shows the current regulatory and the content of the regulatory file.

show ap regulatory

show ap allowed-max-eirp ap-name <ap-name> country-code <country-code>

show ap debug received-reg-table ap-name <ap-name>

Activating the Regulatory-Cert

Once the Regulatory-Cert has been added to the managed device, the new regulatory information must be activated and pushed to the APs.

The following CLI Command-Line Interface. A console interface with a command line shell that allows users to execute text input as commands and convert these commands to appropriate functions. command activates a specific regulatory file loaded on the managed device.

ap regulatory activate <filename>

The following CLI Command-Line Interface. A console interface with a command line shell that allows users to execute text input as commands and convert these commands to appropriate functions. command returns the regulatory file to the factory default regulatory-cert.

ap regulatory reset

In a Mobility Master-Managed Device deployment, the file syncing profile can be enabled to ensure that the regulatory-cert that is stored on the Mobility Master is shared with the managed devices.

File synchronization occurs when the downloadable regulatory table is activated in the Mobility Master and the Mobility Master synchronizes the downloadable regulatory table to all managed devices within the synchronization time and is automatically activated. File syncing is enabled by default, with a default sync time of 30 minutes. The sync time can be set between 30 to 180 minutes. To configure the file syncing profile, use the following commands

(host) [md] (config) #file syncing profile

(host) [md] (File syncing profile) #file-syncing-enable

(host) [md] (File syncing profile) #sync-time 30
