In releases prior to ArubaOS, the output of this command included 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz as output parameters. In ArubaOS, these output parameters are modified to display the radio IDs, bands, EIRP, Maximum EIRP, and number of clients.

The output of this command includes the following information:




Name of an AP


The AP is associated with this AP group.

IP address

IP address of the AP, in dotted decimal format.

AP Type

AP model type.


This column displays any flags for this AP. The list of flag abbreviations is also included in the output of the show ap active command.

B = Battery Boost On

C = Cellular;

D = Disconn. Extra Calls On

E = Wired AP enabled

F = AP failed 802.1X authentication

H = Hotspot Enabled

R = Remote AP

S = AP connected as standby

X = Maintenance Mode

a = Reduce ARP packets in the air

d = Drop Mcast/Bcast On

u = Custom-Cert RAP

i = Provisioned as indoor

o = Provisioned as outdoor

p = Restriction mode in POE-AF/AT

r = 802.11r Enabled

t=Tri-radio mode enabled

Number of hours, minutes and seconds since the last Mobility Conductor reboot or bootstrap, in the format hours:minutes:seconds.

Outer IP

The outer IP address of a Remote AP is used to establish an IPsec VPN tunnel to the terminating Mobility Conductor. The RAP acquires an outer IP address from the locally connected network, usually via DHCP. (A Remote AP is typically behind a NAT device whose public IP is seen as the outer IP for the Remote AP).

Radio 0 Band Ch/EIRP/MaxEIRP/Clients

Radio ID, channel, EIRP, Maximum EIRP, and the number of clients using Radio 0.

Radio 1 Band Ch/EIRP/MaxEIRP/Clients

Radio ID, channel, EIRP, Maximum EIRP, and the number of clients using Radio 1.

Radio 2 Band Ch/EIRP/MaxEIRP/Clients

Radio ID, channel, EIRP, Maximum EIRP, and the number of clients using Radio 2.

Command History




New flags, x, y, and z were introduced to indicate the flex dual band support for the AP-615.


The 6GHz parameter was introduced for Wi-Fi 6E APs.


The output parameters Radio 0 Band Ch/EIRP/MaxEIRP/Clients, Radio 1 Band Ch/EIRP/MaxEIRP/Clients, and Radio 2 Band Ch/EIRP/MaxEIRP/Clients will include the following details:

MPP: Indicates mesh enabled radio of a mesh portal.

MPC: The mesh point radio that has a parent link.

MPA: The mesh point radio without a parent link.


Two new output parameters Radio 2 Band Ch/EIRP/MaxEIRP/Clients and flag t were introduced.


A new flag, 4 was introduced to indicate Wi-Fi uplink.


New flags, T, U, V, and W were introduced.

In addition, the output parameters for this command were modified to show the radio ID (that is, Radio 0 and Radio 1), radio band, and the debug details such as APs' operation mode for the dual 5GHz mode settings.
