Limitations are not necessarily software nonconformances or issues, but might affect workflow, and are presented here for your reference and consideration.

The following are known software limitations in Extreme Networks A3 v2.0.0:

You must upload the HTTPS and EAP-TLS certificates of a cluster to the cluster primary and not to the member nodes.
When setting up a cluster, you can only join one node to the cluster at a time. To join addition nodes, be sure to wait for the previous join process to complete.
When linking to an Aerohive cloud account, reports only include data from that moment onward, and do not include historical data prior to linking.
You cannot change the network interface configuration of an A3 cluster through the UI after initial configuration. Ensure the accuracy of your initial setup when configuring network interfaces.
When performing software update on a cluster, progress does not appear incrementally, but appears all at once at the end of the process.
A3 currently supports only one Ethernet interface.
Administrators might not be able to log in to A3 if the system clock on the A3 system is not accurate.
After adding an Active Directory domain, always restart A3 services in the following order to prevent service dependency issues: radiusd, radsniff, netdata, pfstat.
Configure clusters only on the cluster primary.
When you remove a node from an A3 cluster, it can neither rejoin the cluster, nor function as a standalone and must be discarded.
