AP125 not connecting to controller

I have 3 AP125's and all are statically IP addressed. 1 works fine and the other 2 do not. I am using enet0 port on all of them. They are configured to go to the master controller via IP. They show as being connected but do not show the 11a/n or 11b/g/n LED.

Re: AP125 not connecting to controller

Please type "show ap database" on the controller to see their status. Please also type "show log system 50"

When I do show ap database, they are there. When I do show log system 50 they are not there.

Re: AP125 not connecting to controller

Do you have spanning tree port-fast enabled on the switch port where the APs are connected. There was a timeout issue with 5.0.3, 6.0 and early versions of 6.1 that would cause the master discovery process to reboot the AP before spanning tree could put the port into forwarding mode. This only occurred with statically addressed APs. The timeout was increased in newer code revs.

If that is not the case, what does "show ap active | include " show?

When I go into AirWave VisualRF, They appear but do not show any signal where the one that is working fine shows signal.

Re: AP125 not connecting to controller

SouthMain-AP1 Milford_Main 172.29.1.20 0 AP:HT:1/20.5/20.5 0 AP:HT:157+/19/19 125 A 11h:45m:13s N/A


The ports for all of them (2 non-working and 1 working) are configured the same without spanning-tree. Should I have this turned on?

Re: AP125 not connecting to controller

For those APs, what do you have configured for the LMS-IP for those three statically provisioned APs?

Re: AP125 not connecting to controller

I have tried both pointing them to the master and to the local controllers.

Watching the boot process via console cable. It gets to making interface eth0 the new active one, then after a few minutes reboots.

Re: AP125 not connecting to controller

in the "show ap active" command output, it showed the AP had been up for 11 hours. Is that the working one? Do the non-working ones show up in the "show ap active" output?

If the AP is reboot constantly, I would try enabling spanning-tree port-fast and see if it will boot fully.
