Viewing Aruba Wireless Device Inventory in Network Director

The Aruba Wireless Device Inventory page in Network Director lists Aruba wireless LAN access points and wireless LAN controllers connected to Juniper Networks switches. Network Director retrieves the device inventory list based on the resynchronization interval specified under Preferences. After the resynchronization is completed successfully, Network Director populates only those Aruba wireless LAN access points and wireless LAN controllers that are connected to Juniper switches. The Aruba wireless devices and the Juniper switches must be managed by the Aruba Airwave application for Network Director to populate the Aruba device inventory. The Aruba Wireless Device Inventory page provides basic information about the devices, such as IP address and current operating status.

You can view the inventory list for the Aruba devices in the following modes of Network Director:

The scope that you select in the View pane determines which Aruba devices are listed in the Device Inventory page. For example:

The Aruba device Inventory page provides two pie charts that summarize the status of the devices in your selected scope:

Mouse over a pie segment to view the actual number of devices and the percentage represented by that pie segment.

Clicking Resynchronize Now creates a job to synchronize the Juniper Networks and Aruba servers. After few moments, the latest Aruba device inventory with the current operating status of the devices is populated in this page.

You can also perform a search of wireless devices in the device inventory list by typing any of the field names of the device inventory table and its value in the Enter Search text box.
