I have a mixed IAP environment. New IAP-115s in one location, and a few, older IAP-93s in another. The 93s have an older firmware version.
I am assuming that I need to update the firmware on my older IAP-93s for them to see the new controller, which is on a brand-new IAP-115. I have factory reset the 93s, but they aren't seeing the controller.
They are on the same network, same subnet, same VLAN.
When I reset the IAP-93 and log onto "instant" and attempt an automatic firmware update, it does not work.
I would like to download the file for a manual update, but from where? I do not have ArubaCare.

1. Try the automatic upgrade option on the new AP115s to bring it up to the latest code.
2. Take the new IAP115s out of the network, allow the network to come up with only the older AP93s.
3. Try the automatic upgrade process again on the AP93s, it should work if the network is homogenous
4. Put the new AP115s back in.

If i got a cluster with mixed enviroment let say i got RAP109 and IAP 115 working with the same firmware same cluster.
Let say i want to do a firmware upgrade to all
Which is the correct procedure to do so?

You should have no issues providing the IAP can pull an address via DHCP and reach the Internet. The latest firmware pushed out via GUI update is 188.8.131.52-184.108.40.206_41506. I would suggest bringing the IAP to your home network and seeing if you can get out from there.
Also, adding onto the post by NightShade1, it would be great to see documentation regarding the proper upgrade procedure in a mixed enviornment. I have several customers which will have 115's, 105's, and possibly 225's coexisting in the same cluster. There are many different image versions for the various AP types (Orion, Cassiopeia, Centaurus, Pegasus, Aries) and it may be a bit tedious if customers have one of each in the cluster. Just wondering if there are any streamlined processes planned for a future date.

I finally got the IAP-93 to pull the image update. Now it's version is newer than my IAP-115s, so it's still not talking to the instant controller.
The IAP-93 has 220.127.116.11-18.104.22.168_41049
The IAP-115s have 22.214.171.124-126.96.36.199_39949
Logging into the controller, I see, of course all the 115s because they are on the same version. When I go to update I consistently get "image check encountered an unknown error". The IAPs can access the Internet, DHCP is working as well as DNS.

I was only able to solve this by signing up for ArubaCare and downloading the image files for the update. After that, I got all the IAPs on the same version.
