Widjaja Sangtoki to Everyone: that's great... adoption for WLC support is quick in our region... I know at least 2 customers here using it already... I hope that will be the same with Aruba WiFi support

Nagesh Jaiswal to Everyone: Yes. The integration is bi-directional

Widjaja Sangtoki to Everyone: @Marlos, yes.. we have been supporting it quite some time

Nagesh Jaiswal to Everyone: Right. The unidirectional support is for some time now. With 10.2 we will have bi-directional support

Tarun Pamu to Everyone: Hello Mehmet ..Thanks for joining the session

Widjaja Sangtoki to Everyone: @Mehmet, do you have any questions about Spectrum?

Mehmet to Everyone: hi tarun

Mehmet to Everyone: yes , its regarding topology view

Mehmet to Everyone: we would like to export connectivity to an excel file, is there any possibility to achive  this?

Balram to Everyone: @Mehmet : we can get the associations using CLI

Widjaja Sangtoki to Everyone: @Mehmet, as far as I know the only thing we can do is to use CLI 'show association' command

Balram to Everyone: @Mehmet : a script can be written to make it a csv file

Mehmet to Everyone: what about modeling gateway?

Mehmet to Everyone: it generates xml, but it does not show which device connected to which device on which port

Mehmet to Everyone: do you have a sample show association command?

Balram to Everyone: @yes, there are a bunch of associations which need to be fetched to form the output in the way you expect. Example associations are Connects to, Links with, Is_Adjacent_To

Balram to Everyone: @it is definitely achievable via script using CLI

Widjaja Sangtoki to Everyone: there is an "update action" CLI command also to output the connections on a model

Mehmet to Everyone: may i get a sample?

Widjaja Sangtoki to Everyone: KD article TEC1352254

Widjaja Sangtoki to Everyone: I will get the link for you

Tarun Pamu to Everyone: http://www.ca.com/us/support/ca-support-online/product-content/knowledgebase-articles/tec1352254.aspx
