Aruba Instant ON APs automatically update the image once the latest version is available in the Cloud Server.
Whenever a new version is available, all APs in the site can be upgraded to the new version automatically.
Instant On AP allows you to control when the new image should be updated. This is done by configuring a day of the week and time of your preference for the site on the Instant-On Mobile app or web application.
Follow the below steps to manage the upgrade:
Navigate to the Site management page.
Click the Software update tab to view the scheduling options.
Select the Preferred "day" of the week for the software update to be installed automatically.
Select a suitable "Time" from the drop-down menu.
Each AP installs the new software image and reboot during the scheduled time.
The APs will restart during the Software Upgrade and hence the clients connected to the respective APs will get disconnected.
Normally, The APs upgrade time takes around 5-10 minutes hence it is recommended to schedule the upgrade during the downtime
The APs will continue to run in the previous image version if the software update gets failed.
NOTE : Critical software updates may override these settings and will be installed within 24 hours.
