AP's Constantly Rebooting

Need some help with AP's 93, that came out of the box. Connected to Controller 620, POE. AP's do there ip broadcasts and receive there ip nicely. The only thing they do next is reboot, time after time after time. So, i can't configure them using the aruba controller. Any idea?

Re: AP's Constantly Rebooting

Note that these AP's are supported from 5.0.1.x onwards, Check if you can console into the AP and see at what stage during the boot process it would cycle over again?
Does it show any 'Reboot Cause' in the console output?

Re: AP's Constantly Rebooting

The AP is doing an autoboot. Its doing an automatic boot of image, next starting application, uncompressing and then boots itself. In between its doing its dhcp discovery and receives it from the controller. OS version of controller is okay.

Re: AP's Constantly Rebooting

Sounds like the AP is unable to boot with the ap-image which it had downloaded from the controller, since you had mentioned that in between it also tries to get an ip and still reboots, here are the top possible causes;

1) Ensure that there are available ap licenses installed on the controller
2) Disable control-plane-security if at all it is enabled
3) Make sure to try with more than one AP - could be h.w

Problem is Solved: it was due to the nostalgic old OS. Upgrade to new OS solved all problems.
