Introduction
The Aruba AP 60/61 is part of a comprehensive wireless network solution. The
device works in conjunction with the Aruba Mobility Controller and can act as a
wireless access point or air monitor.
As a wireless Access Point (AP), the Aruba AP 60/61 provides transparent,
secure, high-speed data communications between wireless network devices
(fixed, portable, or mobile computers with IEEE 802.11a or IEEE 802.11b/g
wireless adapters) and the wired LAN.
As a wireless Air Monitor (AM), a feature unique to Aruba products, the Aruba AP
60/61 enhances wireless networks by collecting statistics, monitoring traffic,
detecting intrusions, enforcing security policies, balancing wireless traffic load,
self-healing coverage gaps, and more.
NOTE:
Installing the Aruba AP 60/61 requires setting the antenna power, which
requires professional training. The Aruba AP 60/61 installer must be
trained to perform this configuration.

The Aruba AP Setup Process
Setting up an Aruba AP typically consists of four stages:
WLAN Planning—The administrator determines how many Aruba APs will be
needed for their wireless network strategy and where they will be deployed. This
can be easily accomplished using Aruba’s automated RF Plan site-survey
software (available separately).
AP Provisioning—Provisioning provides each Aruba AP with initial settings that
allow it to locate the host Aruba Mobility Controller. Depending on the network
topology and services, AP provisioning can be performed manually for each AP or
plug-and-play for batches of APs.
AP provisioning is discussed in Appendix 2, “Provisioning Access Points.”
AP Deployment—Once provisioned, the AP can be physically installed at its
intended place of operation.
AP deployment is covered in Chapter 3, “AP Deployment”.
AP Configuration—The administrator defines the operational behavior for each
Aruba AP, such as RF characteristics and security features.
For AP configuration information, refer to the ArubaOS User Guide.

Provisioning Access Points

Access Points are radio broadcast devices and as such are subject to
governmental regulation. Network administrators responsible for the
configuration and operation of Access Points must comply with local broadcast
regulations. Specifically, Access Points must use channel assignment and
antenna gain settings (for detachable antennas) appropriate to the location in
which the Access Point will be used. Aruba Networks, in compliance with
governmental requirements, has designed the AP60 and AP61 such that only
authorized network administrators can change these settings. For more
information on Access Point configuration, refer to the ArubaOS User Guide.
Provisioning provides the AP with initial network settings that allow it to locate
the host Aruba Mobility Controller. The following provisioning methods (listed in
the order of preference recommended by Aruba Networks) are available:
z
z
Plug and Play—Also known as the Aruba Discovery Protocol. This is the easiest method for AP provisioning. With plug and play, Aruba APs can be connected to the network and brought into operation automatically. Although
plug and play requires no manual intervention for the APs, this method does
require specific services to be configured on your network in advance.
AP Provisioning—Using this AP programming mode, AP configuration parameters are defined on the Mobility Controller (using the CLI or Web interface) and
then uploaded to the APs.
This method can be used for adding Aruba APs to a highly customized
network, or greatly simplified for the most common provisioning.
z
Manual Provisioning—APs can be individually provisioned using a serial console terminal connected to the AP. Although this method is complex and
requires considerable care, manual provisioning can be used in almost any
scenario, with or without access to the Mobility Controller.
NOTE:
Manual provisioning is intended for use when no Aruba Mobility
Controller is available, and is not generally recommended as the
primary method of AP provisioning. Plug and play or AP
programming mode are the preferred provisioning methods.
Aruba AP 60/61
Installation Guide

Provisioning Access Points
Chapter 2
Each of these three methods is explained in the following sections. Use these
procedures for initial provisioning of APs. To change the configuration for APs
that have already been provisioned, go to Maintenance > Program AP > Re-Provision.
See the ArubaOS User Guide for more information on reprovisioning existing APs.
CAUTION:
When an AP60 powers up for the first time, the Mobility
Controller will recognize that it is detachable-antennas
capable. The network administrator must set the antenna
gain manually before the AP60 can function as an Access
Point. Until the antenna gain is set, the AP60 with
detachable antennas will function as an Air Monitor but
will not process wireless packets as an Access Point.
Refer to the ArubaOS User Guide for instructions on
manually setting antenna gain.
Aruba Discovery Protocol
Aruba Discovery Protocol (ADP) is a plug and play provisioning tool for Aruba AP
60/61 Access Points. ADP performs two tasks:
z
z
Obtains the IP address of the TFTP server from which it downloads the AP
boot image
It discovers the IP address of the master Aruba Mobility Controller in the network from which the AP can download its configuration.
The address of the TFTP server that ADP discovers is the equivalent of the
BOOTROM environment variable serverip. The IP address of the Aruba master
Mobility Controller is the equivalent of the environment variable master.
ADP can discover these values using DHCP or by discovery. In the case of DHCP,
ADP relies on a DHCP server which is configured to return the IP address of the
Master Mobility Controller using the Vendor Specific Options in DHCP. To facilitate
ADP, Aruba APs include this Vendor Specific Option in the requested Option list,
and if the DHCP server is configured to return the IP address of the Master
Mobility Controller, the IP address will be a part of the DHCP response. This is
used by the AP to get its image as well as its configuration.
Discovery of the serverip and master variables is necessary when the DHCP response
does not include the Vendor Specific option. The AP attempts to discover an
Aruba Master Mobility Controller by sending multicast packets and broadcast
packets on its subnet. To use the ADP discovery method, the ADP discovery
mechanism needs to be enabled on the Aruba Master Mobility Controller (using
the adp discovery enable command).
If multicast routing is enabled in the IP network between the AP and the Master
Mobility Controller (which can be any one or more Aruba Mobility Controllers in
the network), the IGMP-Join option should be enabled on the Aruba Mobility
Controller (using the adp igmp-join enable command). If multicast routing is not
8

Provisioning Access Points
Chapter 2
enabled on the network, the Aruba Mobility Controllers need to be on the same
broadcast domain as the AP or an “IP Helper” must be configured to direct the
broadcast ADP packets to the Aruba Mobility Controller.
Once these discovery prerequisites are met, the Mobility Controller will respond
to APs with the IP address of the Master Aruba switch. The APs can then obtain
their image and configuration.
To enable ADP on an Aruba Mobility Controller, enter:
(A5000) (config) #adp discovery enable
To enable IGMP-Join on an ADP multicast group on an Aruba Mobility Controller,
enter:
(A5000) (config) #adp igmp-join enable
NOTE:
If you have location-specific configurations for your Access Points, you
will need to apply this configuration information using AP Reprovisioning.
Refer to the ArubaOS User Guide for details on AP Reprovisioning and
see the feature description below.
AP Reprovisioning
AP Reprovisioning is the process by which APs are assigned, for example,
location codes. Location codes are important for recalibration and triangulation.
For details on AP Reprovisioning, see the ArubaOS User Guide.
AP Provisioning
AP Provisioning is useful for brand new APs with default configurations. To
perform AP Provisioning from the WebUI:
1.
Go to Maintenance > Program AP.
On this window, there are two tabs: Provisioning and Reprovisioning. The
Provisioning tab is selected by default.

Specify the Aruba AP 60/61-specific parameters.
Configure the gain value appropriate for the location in which this AP will be
deployed. (See Table 3-1 for appropriate antenna gain values.)
NOTE:
If the AP being provisioned is a model with detachable antenna capability
(such as an Aruba AP-60), enter the antenna gain in dBi(e.g., 4.0). This is
mandatory for all detachable antenna models as the AP will not bring up
its radio interface or function as an AP without it.
Complete specifying Master Discovery and IP Settings and click Apply.
6.
Plug the AP into one of the ports configured for provisioning.
If your AP is already plugged into the port, unplug it and plug it in again. If AP
is connected through POE, enter (in interface mode) no poe followed by poe.
The AP will come up with an IP from the provisioning subnet
After the AP comes up it should be in the provisioning list. Provisioning list
shows the list of APs which are plugged into the provisioning ports.
7.
The Clear Table button appears after an entry in the list appears.
To erase all the table entries, click Clear Table. (You cannot clear selected
entries.) If a number of APs are provisioned and you click Clear Table, only
the entries which come up afterwards can be provisioned.
Aruba AP 60/61

Provisioning Access Points
Chapter 2
If the entry does not show up in the AP list, check network connectivity. Go
to the AP console and verify if the AP has come up with the IP from the
provisioning subnet.
8.
After the entry shows up on the page, configure the location, Host IP/Name,
Master IP address.
If AP is going to be assigned a static IP, click Use the following IP Address
and enter the IP address, Netmask, Gateway IP.
If the AP is going to obtain an IP address using DHCP, click Use IP Address
Using DHCP.
9.
After configuring the required parameters, select the entry from the list (AP to
which the configuration has to be applied) and click Apply.
The State field changes from U (Unprovisioned) to In Progress. to P
(Provisioned).
NOTE:
Check that the configured parameters are reflected in the AP list entry.
NOTE:
Aruba Networks recommends that you provision each AP for a unique
location as suggested by site-survey planning. Label each AP with this
location information and place the AP in its proper location. Failure to
place APs in the location for which they were provisioned will reduce the
effectiveness of such RF features as triangulation.
10. Click Back to return to the previous page
We can see that the Subnet is still configured and Port/s are selected.
11. When finished provisioning APs, click Disable to disable AP Provisioning.
NOTE:
Disable AP Provisioning after all the required APs are provisioned. Ports
that are enabled for provisioning do not handle traffic. Therefore plugging
an already provisioned AP into a port still set to provisioning mode will
prevent that AP from functioning.
Now the AP is configured with the Parameters given
12. Reboot the AP so the AP will come up with the new configured parameters.
Use the Reprovisioning tab for APs which are already deployed but need to be
reconfigured. See the ArubaOS User Guide for information on reprovisioning.

breakout adapter, Part Number CA-SPOE-ADAPT-4.
1. IEEE 802.3af-complaint devices like the AP60 and AP61 use the same wire pairs for data
versus for power. Within the 802.3af standard, there are two sub-specifications on how
wire pairs are assigned. Aruba conforms to 802.3af, subparagraph a. If your POE
installation uses all-Aruba equipment, you are assured proper operation. However, if you
use non-Aruba POE equipment, make sure it conforms to the same standard that Aruba
uses. Using POE equipment using IEEE 802.3af subparagraph b wiring assignments, or
POE equipment not conforming to the 803.2af standard may result in damaged
equipment.

Setting Aruba AP 60/61 Parameters
1.
From the apboot prompt, configure the host information, if necessary.
In order to provide centralized management of the APs, each Aruba AP
downloads its software image and configuration files from a master Mobility
Controller.
Setting the correct host information depends on the following:
z
z
Does your network use direct IP addresses or DNS with host names?
If using host names, is aruba-master acceptable for the master Mobility Controller, or do you need to define a different name?
Depending on your answers, select one of the following steps:
z
My network uses DNS and the aruba-master host name is acceptable.
This is the default. It requires your DNS to be configured to resolve
“aruba-master” to the IP address of the master Mobility Controller. Unless
your system has been previously configured for different settings, you
can skip to Step 2.
Otherwise, if your system was previously configured for a different
setup, manually set the servername environment variable to the default
host name:
apboot> setenv servername aruba-master
NOTE:
The master and serverip environment variables also affect how AP
source files are selected and should be cleared when using this
approach. To clear a variable, enter the setenv variable command with
no host name or address value:
apboot> setenv master
apboot> setenv serverip
When finished, proceed to Step 2.
z
My network uses DNS, but I will use a different host name for the
Mobility Controller.
This requires that the servername variable be configured with your chosen
host name for the master Mobility Controller. It also requires that your
DNS be configured to resolve the specified host name to the IP address
of the master Mobility Controller.
To manually set the host name, use the following command:
apboot> setenv servername <Mobility Controller host name>
Aruba AP 60/61

Provisioning Access Points
Chapter 2
NOTE:
The master and serverip environment variables also affect how
source files are selected and should be cleared when using this
approach. To clear a variable, enter the setenv variable command with
no host or address value.
When finished, proceed to Step 2.
z
My network uses direct IP addresses instead of DNS.
If using direct IP addresses in your network, use the following
commands:
apboot> setenv serverip <Mobility Controller IP address>
apboot> setenv master <Mobility Controller IP address>
NOTE:
2.
If the servername variable is configured in this scenario, it will be
ignored.
Specify an IP address for a specific AP, if necessary.
If using DHCP, the AP will obtain its IP address automatically and you can
skip this step. Otherwise, configure the AP with a static IP address using the
following commands:
apboot> setenv ipaddr <static IP address for the AP>
apboot> setenv netmask <static IP address mask>
apboot> setenv gatewayip <default gateway IP address>
3.
Set the location for the specific AP, if necessary.
Location settings depend on how much control you want over configuring
logical groups of APs in the future.
z
Default Locations
If you wish all APs treated as a single entity for configuration and
accounting purposes, you can use the default location profile
(255.255.65535) and skip to Step 4.
NOTE:
z
If using default locations during initial provisioning, you can later
reconfigure the APs to use specific location IDs using the Aruba
Mobility Controller management tools.
Specific Locations
By setting specific location IDs for each AP, you can later apply
configuration changes or collect statistics and information for specific
groups of APs (for example, all APs on a particular floor in a particular
building).
To set a specific location for an individual AP, the following command is
used:
setenv location <building number>.<floor number>.<device number>

Mounting the Aruba AP 60/61
When provisioning is complete, mount the Aruba AP 60/61 at its intended service
location.
The Aruba AP 60/61 Access Points with or without external antennas are
intended only for installation in Environment A as defined in IEEE 802.3.af. All
interconnected equipment must be contained within the same building, including
the interconnected equipment's associated LAN connections. (When using an
external antenna, 5.150 to 5.250 MHz are blocked.)
Select a location as close as possible to the center of the intended coverage area.
If necessary, use the Aruba RF Plan site survey tool to determine the optimum
locations for your access points and air monitors.
The service location should be free from obstructions or obvious sources of
interference. Normally, the higher you place an access point or air monitor, the
better its performance.
If external antennas are used, make sure that they and their associated wiring are
located entirely indoors. The Aruba AP 60/61 and any optional external antennas
are not suitable for outside use.

Connecting Required Cables
The Aruba AP 60/61 Access Points with or without external antennas are
intended only for installation in Environment A as defined in IEEE 802.3.af. All
interconnected equipment must be contained within the same building, including
the interconnected equipment's associated LAN connections.
Selecting an FE Cable
The 10/100 Mbps Ethernet (FE) port is used to connect the AP to a
10Base-T/100Base-TX (twisted-pair) Ethernet LAN segment. The appropriate FE
cable depends on the features required of the FE port:
z
SPOE
When connecting the AP to a device that supports Serial and Power Over
Ethernet (SPOE), use an 8-conductor, Category 5 UTP, straight-through FE
cable.
The Aruba 5000 (with Line Card LC-5000-24FE-2GE-SPOE), the Aruba 2400,
and the Aruba 800 support SPOE.
z
POE
If the connecting device supports only Power Over Ethernet (POE), use a 4- or
8-conductor, Category 5 UTP, straight-through FE cable.
z
Network Only
If the connecting device does not support POE, use a 4- or 8-conductor,
Category 5 UTP, FE cable. The port detects MDI/MDX and automatically
adjusts for straight-through or crossover cables.
The maximum length for FE cables is 100 meters (325 feet).
When the Aruba AP 60/61 is installed in an air-handling space, such as above
suspended ceilings, as described in National Electrical Code (2002) Article
300.22(C), and Canadian Electrical Code, Sections 2-128, 12-010(3) and 12-100,
Part 1, CSA C22.1, POE is required. Also, any FE cable installed in such spaces
should be suitable under NEC Article 800.50 and marked accordingly for use in
plenums and air-handling spaces with regard to smoke propagation, such as
CL2-P, CL3-P, MPP, or CMP.
Use the built-in antenna (for the AP61). For the Aruba 60, use Aruba AP-ANT-1.
For all other antennas, make sure the antenna cable is UL listed and suitable for
use in plenums and air-handling spaces, such as CL2-P, CL3-P, MPP, or CMP, and
mount the antenna outside of the air-handling space.
Install cables in accordance with all applicable local and national regulations and
practices.
For more port and cable details, see Appendix B, “Port Specifications.”

Selecting an Antenna
There are three ways to select an AP60 antenna:
1.
From the AP console (serial or telnet) enter set_antenna 0|1|2 where 0
specifies auto mode, and 1 or 2 chooses a specific antenna. The antenna
selection is not persistent and the AP will loose the antenna selection, if
rebooted.
2.
From the AP boot prompt (apboot>) enter a_antenna 0|1|2 or g_antenna 0|1|2
to specify an antenna. Enter a save command before booting the AP to save
the antenna configuration in the AP’s Flash memory, along with other
provisioning parameters.
3.
For releases 2.3 and higher, you can provision the antenna selection from the
Mobility Controller.
Maintenance
The AP60 and AP61 require no maintenance beyond keeping the AP clean and
dust free. To clean the Aruba AP 60/61, use a static-free, dry cloth.
Aruba recommends that these units be inspected annually for damage, dust
buildup, and to verify that all connections are secure.

Troubleshooting
This appendix discusses troubleshooting tools and procedures available for the
Aruba AP 60/61. Troubleshooting should be limited to the information provided
below.
CAUTION:
This AP contains no user accessible components. Do not
attempt to disassemble the Aruba AP 60/61. If this AP
does not operate properly, contact Aruba Technical
Support (contact information is contained in
“Troubleshooting”). No maintenance (beyond keeping the
AP clean and dust free) is required. To clean the Aruba AP
60/61, use a static-free, dry cloth.
After provisioning and deployment, the Aruba AP 60/61 can be configured and
managed through the Mobility Controller. However, the Aruba AP 60/61 includes
built-in troubleshooting features for situations where the Mobility Controller
commands are unable to diagnose AP problems.
This appendix describes using the built-in AP support prompt for troubleshooting.
Accessing the AP Support Prompt
Depending on your network topology, the built-in AP Support prompt can be
accessed using the AP serial console port or through the Mobility Controller using
the Serial Over Ethernet (SOE) interface or using Telnet from a remote
management station.
Direct SPOE Connection to Mobility Controller
This method requires that the Aruba AP 60/61 is connected directly to an
SPOE-compatible network port on the Mobility Controller (see “Connecting
Required Cables” on page 28).

Appendix A
Use a Telnet client on your management workstation to connect to
theMobility Controller IP address using logical port 2300. The connection
command may vary depending on the specific software used, but commonly
appears as follows:
> telnet <Mobility Controller IP address> 2300
2.
When prompted, log in to the Mobility Controller as the administrator:
user: admin
password: <administrator password (not displayed)>
This will present you with the Mobility Controller SOE console prompt:
Available commands:
baud [9600|19200|38400|57600|115200]
connect <slot/port>
exit (no args)
soe>
3.
Connect to the Mobility Controller port to which the Aruba AP 60/61 is
physically attached:
soe> connect <slot number>/<port number>
where slot number is the physical slot of the line card in the Mobility Controller, and
port number is the physical port.
If the AP has not finished booting, allow the Autoboot timer to expire. When the
device has booted, the AP support prompt (#) will appear.
Direct Terminal Connection
This method requires that the Aruba AP 60/61 is connected to a compatible serial
console using the Aruba serial breakout adapter (see “Connecting the Console
Terminal” on page 14).
1.
Set up your local terminal.
This procedure requires a terminal or computer running terminal emulation

Press <Enter> a few times to establish communication between the Aruba AP
60/61 and terminal.
If the AP has not finished booting, allow the Autoboot timer to expire. When the
device has booted, the AP Support prompt (#) will appear.
NOTE:
Aruba has two serial cables for the AP 60s. One cable is for Aruba POE
and is relatively inexpensive. The other cable requires mid-span power
and is relatively expensive. A workaround to having to use the more
expensive cable is to have a power supply available to use with the
inexpensive serial cable.
Also you can directly connect the AP to a Mobility Controller to correct
any provisioning problems.
Remote Telnet Connection
If properly set up, the AP support prompt can be accessed remotely using Telnet.
By default, this feature is turned off for security purposes and cannot be turned
on using the AP interface.
Setting Telnet Access
Telnet access can only be changed from the Mobility Controller management
interface. Log in to the Mobility Controller CLI using the admin account, access the
configuration (config) prompt, and issue the following commands:
(Aruba 5000) (config) # ap location <building>.<floor>.<device>
(Aruba 5000) (sap-config location b.f.d) # telnet {enable|disable}
Using Telnet to Connect
Use a Telnet client on your management workstation to connect to the Aruba AP
60/61’s individual IP address. The connection command may vary depending on

Aruba AP 60/61 FE Port
The appropriate cable depends on the level of connectivity required of the FE port:
z
If the connecting device supports Serial and Power Over Ethernet (SPOE), use
an 8-conductor, Category 5 UTP, straight-through FE cable with a male RJ-45
connector.
The Aruba 5000 (with Line Card LC-5000-24FE-2GE-SPOE), the Aruba 2400,
and the Aruba 800 support SPOE.
z
z
If the connecting device supports only Power Over Ethernet (POE, including
IEEE 802.3af POE as well as “inline” or “midspan” POE devices), use an 8- or
4-conductor, Category 5 UTP, straight-through FE cable with male RJ-45 connectors.
If the connecting device does not support Serial or POE, use a 4- or 8-conductor, Category 5 UTP, FE cable with male RJ-45 connectors. The port detects
MDI/MDX and automatically adjusts for straight-through or crossover cables.
The maximum length for FE cables is 100 meters (325 feet).
When the Aruba AP 60/61 is installed in an air-handling space, as described in
NEC (2002) Article 300.22 (C), POE is required. Also, any FE cable installed in
such spaces should be suitable under NEC Article 800.50 and marked accordingly
for use in plenums and air-handling spaces with regard to smoke propagation,
such as CL2-P, CL3-P, MPP or CMP.

operates in the 2.4GHz Industrial/Scientific/Medical (ISM) band. The ISM band
is available worldwide for unlicensed use. Data is transmitted at speeds of up
to 54 Mbps.
Power Over Ethernet
The Aruba AP 60/61 supports the IEEE 802.3af standard for Power Over Ethernet
(POE). With this feature, the Aruba AP 60/61 can accept electrical power from a
compatible POE-capable device (such as the Aruba 5000 (with Line Card
LC-5000-24FE-2GE-SPOE), Aruba 2400, or Aruba 800) directly over the FE cable.
POE eliminates the need to provide separate power outlets in environments that
are difficult or undesirable to wire for electricity.
The Aruba AP 60/61 also supports “inline” and “midspan” POE devices for
normal operation. Inline power is POE that is integrated into FE ports and provides
POE directly to devices. Non-POE ports can have POE added by means of a
mid-span device that provides POE. The non-POE port is connected to a mid-span
POE port, and this mid-span port is connected to the device that requires POE.
