Chapter 2 Migrating the AirWave Server
Migrating the AirWave Server
Important Information for Migration
The following are the requirements and guidelines for the migration process:
n The AirWave system must be running a minimum AirWave version of 8.2.8.2 for the online migration to proceed and a minimum version of 8.2.11.0 to proceed with offline migration. If the AirWave system is running an earlier version, refer to the AirWave documentation to upgrade the version to minimum supported versions.
n Only those APs, controllers, and switches that are supported in Aruba Central (on-premises) are migrated. For information on supported hardware, see Supported Platforms section.
n As part of migration, Visual RF and the device inventory for CAPs, IAPs, controllers, and Aruba/HPE switches are migrated.
n For controllers, the device credentials for SNMP and HTTPS profiles are mapped. n Migration of multiple AirWave systems to a single Aruba Central (on-premises) server is supported. That
is, you can migrate multiple AirWave systems to Aruba Central (on-premises) by adding the IP addresses or AMP Hostnames of each AirWave system individually. n All the historical data including data related to reports, monitoring, and stats are not migrated from Airwave to Aruba Central (on-premises) during the migration process. n Templates are not migrated from Airwave to Aruba Central (on-premises) during the migration process. You must manually create a new template in Aruba Central (on-premises) based on the requirement. n All data related to VisualRF is migrated from Airwave to Aruba Central (on-premises) during the migration process.
Accessing the Migration Page
To access the migration page, perform the following procedure:
1. Log in to your Aruba Central (on-premises) account as an administrator. 2. Click the Account Home page icon.
The Account Home page is displayed. 3. Click Global Settings > System Management. 4. Click the Migration tab.
The migration page is displayed.

Figure 2 Add Migration Using IP Address

All system operations are disabled until the active system operation is complete. The migration, backup and restore, high availability processes, and the upgrade operations are the system operations in Aruba Central (on-premises).
Offline Migration
In addition to the online migration, Aruba Central (on-premises) allows you to perform offline migration of the Device Inventory data and Visual RF data from AirWave to Aruba Central (on-premises) by uploading the backup file that was earlier downloaded from AirWave. This process is called Offline Migration. Offline Migration is also called as the Inplace Migration. The user need not have the AirWave server up and running for an offline migration. Offline migration is required when the user wants to deploy Aruba Central (on-premises) on the same AirWave server. The advantage of offline migration is that the user can bring in all the devices to Aruba Central (on-premises) from AirWave with a single operation.

Aruba Central (On-Premises) | Migration Guide

Chapter 3 Configuration Data Check

Configuration Data Check
After the migration completes, verify that your device inventory and the associated or applicable device credentials are migrated correctly. The following resources are migrated:
n Device inventory for CAPs, IAPs, controllers, and switches. For more information, see Device Inventory. n For controllers, the device credentials for SNMP and HTTPS profiles.
The HTTPS profile remains blank, if the user does not enter the ssh credentials of the controller on the AMP at the time of migration.
Post-Migration Setup
Ensure to configure the migrated devices to the Aruba Central (on-premises) server to ensure successful transfer of data or AMON traffic between the device and the Aruba Central (on-premises) server. The devices must be mapped to the cluster IP Aruba Central (on-premises) server. Prior to the migration process, the controllers were mapped to the AirWave server. Prior to the migration process, the DHCP server points to the AirWave server. Once the migration process is completed, ensure that the DHCP server is pointed to the Aruba Central (on-premises) server.
Device Inventory
Once the migration process is completed, the devices are automatically populated in the Account Home > Global Settings > Device Inventory page. Resources such as the CAPs, IAPs, controllers, and switches are migrated to Device Inventory. The controllers and CAPs are automatically onboarded after the migration process without user intervention.
Ensure to onboard the switches and IAPs manually after the migration process. For more information, see the Central (on-premises) User Guide. As a part of Instant AP onboarding procedure, you must manually configure the AMS IP address and AMS key. In case of onboarding the switches, you must manually execute the Aruba Central or AMP sever command. Alternately, you can add Instant APs and switches to Aruba Central, by configuring a shared secret key on the DHCP server.
Once the device is added to the Device Inventory, you must map the device profiles to the respective devices available in the Device Inventory. To map a connection profile to the controller, perform the following steps:
1. In the Account Home page, under Global Setting click Device Inventory. The Device Inventory page is displayed.

Annex - Supported Platforms
This section provides the following information:
n Supported APs n Supported AOS-Switch Platforms n Supported AOS-CX Switch Platforms n Supported Aruba Mobility Controllers

Supported APs
Aruba Central (on-premises) supports following types of Aruba access points (APs).
n Instant APs--The Instant Access Point (IAP) based WLAN solution consists of a cluster of access points in a Layer 2 subnet. The IAPs serve a dual role as both Virtual Controller (VC) and member APs. The IAP WLAN solution does not require a dedicated controller hardware and can be deployed through a simplified setup process appropriate for smaller organizations, or for multiple geographically dispersed locations without an on-site administrator. IAPs run on the Aruba Instant. Aruba Central (on-premises) supports both monitoring and management of IAPs. With Aruba Central (on-premises), network administrators can configure, monitor, and troubleshoot IAP WLANs, upload new software images, monitor devices, generate reports, and perform other vital management tasks from remote locations.
n Campus APs--The Campus Access Point (CAP)s are used in private networks where APs connect over private links (LAN, WLAN, WAN, or MPLS) and terminate directly on controllers. CAPs are deployed as part of the indoor campus solution in enterprise office buildings, warehouses, hospitals, universities, and so on. Aruba Central (on-premises) supports only onboarding and monitoring the CAPs.

Supported IAP
Aruba Central (on-premises) supports the following IAP platforms and Aruba Instant software versions:

Supported Device

Latest Validated Software Versions

Aruba 7000 Series Mobility Controllers Aruba 7200 Series Mobility Controllers

8.7.1.0 8.6.0.7 6.5.4.16

NOTE: Controllers running ArubaOS 6.5.4.8 software image do not support WebSocket connection. You must manually add these controllers to Aruba Central.
The minimum software version required for monitoring controller clusters and Mobility Conductor managed networks is ArubaOS 8.2.1.0.

Supported AOS-Switch Platforms

n To manage your AOS-Switches using Aruba Central (on-premises), ensure that the switch software is upgraded to 16.09.0010 or a later version. However, if you already have switches running lower software versions in your account, you can continue to manage these devices from Aruba Central (on-premises).
n Changing AOS-Switches firmware from latest version to earlier major versions is not recommended if the switches are managed in UI groups. For features that are not supported or not managed in Aruba Central (on-premises) on earlier AOS-Switch versions, changing firmware to earlier major versions might result in loss of configuration.

The following tables list the switch platforms, corresponding software versions supported in Aruba Central (on-premises), and switch stacking details.

Template only

Provisioning and configuring of aruba 5400Aruba 5400R switches and Aruba 5400R switch stacks is supported only through configuration templates. Aruba Central (on-premises) does not support moving Aruba 5400R switches from the template group to a UI group. If an Aruba 5400R switch is pre-assigned to a UI group, then the device is moved to an unprovisioned group after it joins.
