Same here, after I switch to local management there are no menu for you to convert it back to the cloud manage. The only way is to reset the switch back to default factory mode.
Beside this, if you have the AP example 3 AP11 connected as a cluster. This will no impact, once your switch back to the cloud manage, you just need to add your AP back to the cloud manage and everything will remaining no changes.
Hope this help. If anyone have any idea to convert the local management back to cloud, please advise us.
This part is concerning to me. I have been considering the Aruba Instant ON 1930 as an upgrade to several HPE 1920s I have. I was thinking the Aruba Instant on web portal would be a welcome addition to get cloud monitoring and administration, but not at the cost of either or. I guess it's the same price as the HPE 1920s equivelant 370W POE+ 24 port version JL385A with the newer processor and some capabilities like 24 port capable poe. The HPE will require I figure out which of the 24 ports to plug in the poe devices, while the Aruba one will auto detect since all pors are capable.
Do you find a big difference in manageability between the cloud and local?
I've been using Unifi APs and they have both, which really is the cloud communicating with a controller that has a link, either local or remote to their devices. Thus you could use both. However, Arubas Instant On's either or doesn't seem like such a great benefit in comparison if it requires a factory reset to switch management capabilities.
For those of you using the 1930s, how do you find it? I was also asking another discussion about it's capabilities. It looks like a Layer 2+ or Layer 3 lite switch. Anything that is a bit of an upgrade without doubling the price? It seems like the next up is the Aruba 2930 series?
The either-or thing may be a deal-breaker for me if they don't fix it soon. They lure you in with the dream of cloud-managed hardware with no licensing but once you start using it you see the cloud management is very minimal and poorly implemented.
Price point is great, physical design is great, local gui features are great, app and cloud and poor.
The real problem is the firmware updates. From what I understand, they are only officially distributed via cloud management or am I wrong? Being very new products I think it is appropriate to keep them updated very frequently ..
@Robeto When in the cloud portal they are offered up to you, and in local mode, you can download the updates as you need.
