Aruba Wireless: "AP Vendor Name Not Match"
One of the problems I encountered lately is the re-branding of the Aruba AP by Dell. In one instance, I upgraded the primary AP to be on the latest code. However, I used the 'Aruba' IOS as opposed to the 'Dell' IOS. Again, this was on a Dell AP hardware. As it turns out, Dell has their own version of the Aruba software and Aruba has their own version of the Aruba software. Enough of a difference that they are not compatible. Here, in the screenshot below, was how I found this out.
