Configuring or Viewing AOS-S Properties in UI Groups

This section describes the configuration and viewing procedures for the switches in the UI groups.

Aruba Central does not support adding pre-configured switches to a UI group. Pre-configured switches that have pre-assigned UI switch groups are added to the Unassigned Devices group. To provision a pre-configured switch to a UI group or move a switch from a template group to a UI group, complete the following steps:

  1. Clear the switch configuration.
  2. Delete the device from Aruba Central.
  3. Provision the switch as a new device in a UI group.

To configure or view properties of the switches provisioned in UI groups, perform the following procedure:

  1. In the Aruba Central app, select one of the following options:
    • To select a switch group in the filter:
      1. Set the filter to a group containing at least one switch.

        The dashboard context for the group is displayed.

      2. Under Manage, click Devices > Switches.
      3. Click the AOS-S or Config icon to view the switch configuration dashboard.
    • To select a switch in the filter:
      1. Set the filter to Global or a group containing at least one switch.
      2. Under Manage, click Devices > Switches.

        A list of switches is displayed in the List view.

      3. Click a switch under Device Name.

        The dashboard context for the switch is displayed.

      4. Under Manage, click Device.

        The tabs to configure the switch is displayed.

  2. Click the config icon to edit the switch properties. Tabs to access different configuration pages are displayed.

    The following table describes the different configuration pages and their functions.
