HPE / Aruba is big and we need Solarwinds to keep up with the market place.
In particular, HPE Aruba are on a big integration drive with lots of changes with advance features to the edge so we Solarwinds to support the customer like we support your software.
Can we get a comment from a Product Manager on this on plans to fully support this full product line once and for all.
What products specifically are you not finding support for? One of our clients uses Aruba wireless and we are able to poll them.
Anything that I don't find (with any vendor) in "out of the box" configurations can be pulled via Universal Device Poller.
Aruba customer as well here. With newer Aruba switch firmwares the ability to monitor hardware health has been lost. Unfortunately Universal Device Pollers don't integrate with the standard hardware health status, so if you decide to go that route you end up with undefined hardware health on nodes, and different alerting configurations for different device. This is not the ideal scenario. I would love to see Aruba support in the very near future. If that is not going to be possible, we will have to look at moving to another monitoring solution.
Aruba Gear has lot of devices and just from poll not everything would come up like how its native monitoring tool provides... going UnDP way is a tougher ask and requires lot of effort if trap based monitoring has to be opted for these devices...
So more insight from polling would really help...
Bump! I need this BADLY! I have 20 switches (Which I know for most is a small deployment) That I'd love to get into NCM and be able to use all of the features easily like the rest of the product.
