Network Wizard Overview
Network Wizard is the workflow to set up an underlay network. To establish an underlay network, Aruba Central automates the L3 and OSPF Open Shortest Path First. OSPF is a link-state routing protocol for IP networks. It uses a link-state routing algorithm and falls into the group of interior routing protocols that operates within a single Autonomous System (AS). switching connectivity by auto-assigning the loopback IP address, ROP links, and creating the Aruba Virtual switching Extension.
To complete the provisioning of underlay network using Aruba Central, complete the following
All Aruba CX switches must be running AOS-CX 10.10.1020 or later.
Move all devices and switches that are on-boarded in Aruba Central into the same UI group.
All the physical cabling between the switches needs to be setup and running.
LLDP Link Layer Discovery Protocol. LLDP is a vendor-neutral link layer protocol in the Internet Protocol suite used by network devices for advertising their identity, capabilities, and neighbors on an IEEE 802 local area network, which is principally a wired Ethernet. must be enabled on all devices and ports.
Ensure all the previously existing underlay network configurations are removed from the switches.
