Provision Aruba AP via CLI
Below you will find the necessary commands to provision an Aruba access-point via CLI. The commands add the access-point to the AP whitelist and provision the AP in the correct ap-group. Adding the AP to the whitelist is necessary when using control-plane security.
whitelist-db cpsec add mac-address “94:b4:0f:c4:7e:98” description “ap01”
whitelist-db cpsec modify mac-address “94:b4:0f:c4:7e:98” cert-type factory-cert state certified-factory-cert
provision-ap read-bootinfo ap-name “94:b4:0f:c4:7e:98”
provision-ap copy-provisioning-params ap-name “94:b4:0f:c4:7e:98”
provision-ap installation indoor
provision-ap no external-antenna
provision-ap server-name “aruba-master”
provision-ap ap-group “corp-01”
provision-ap ap-name “ap01”
provision-ap no syslocation
provision-ap no remote-ap
provision-ap reprovision ap-name “94:b4:0f:c4:7e:98”

my first Aruba deployment is with 8.2. Can i use the whitelist-db modify command for the ap-name and ap-group and not use the provision-ap command at all?
What you can do best is, provisioning an access-point via de GUI. Issue the command “show audit-trail” on the CLI. The output shows the commands which were executed during the provisioning.
