Instant on cloud interface misses many essential functions

    We sold 8 aruba 1930 switches to a client and tried to configure and manage them with Instant on cloud managment.

    This management portal is missing the most basic configuration options and is use less for a good switch configuration.

    Example: vlan taging only possible one port at a time!!! We have 6 48 port switches to configure!!!

    STP configuration is hidden in the interface and it is not possible to set a root switch

    We went back to the local web interface. 

    Please release a product when it is ready

    I'd like to second this.  I like the simplicity of the cloud portal for our level 1 team but it's not practically usable.  Add in the ability to configure multiple ports at once and to enable voice VLAN and I'll be ready to trial it in production usage.

    For the time-value the tech loses, that business could pay for an enterprise-grade switch. It gets worse each time a switch needs to be reconfigured, too.

    They don't even have to rush out a GUI. Just re-enabling the command line option would save a tech hours of imbecilic repetition over 288 ports.

    This product is, for sure, not ready to be sold for the market the hardware could serve. An 8-port home switch, sure. 48 ports with that web interface is...impracticable, to be polite.

    They really, really need to compel the marketing department to allow them to re-enable the CLI. It's pretty clear somebody said, "That's too much value for the dollar! It'll eat our enterprise sales!" and the development team had to back off. It's a shame, because I would gladly replace five smaller Cisco SMB switches with two of these, and there's no chance of that happening while they are crippled by this under-developed interface.
