Setting Firmware Compliance for Access Points

Aruba Central allows you to run a firmware compliance check and force firmware upgrade for all APs in a group. To force a specific firmware version for all APs in a group, complete the following steps:

  1. In the Global dashboard, under Maintain, click Firmware.

    The Access Points tab is selected by default.

  2. Verify the firmware upgrade status for all APs.
  3. Click Set Compliance at the top right and turn on the toggle switch to enable the Manage Firmware Compliance window.
  4. In the Groups drop-down list, select a single group, multiple, or All Groups.
  5. Select a firmware version from the Firmware Version drop-down list.
  6. Select one of the following radio buttons to specify if the compliance must be carried out immediately or at a later date and time:
    • Now—Allows you to set the compliance to be carried out immediately.
    • Later Date—Allows you to set the compliance to be carried out at the later date and time. Select a specific time zone from the Select Zone drop-down options to schedule the firmware compliance in a specific time zone.
  7. Click Save.

Aruba Central initiates a firmware upgrade operation only for the devices that support the selected firmware version. If any of selected devices do not support the firmware version selected for the upgrade, a list of unsupported devices is displayed.
