We created a new IAP 315 Instant cluster with 6 access points. All is well there. The issue we are running into when trying to join older IAP 104’s to the new IAP 315 Instant network in a “class mismatch”. The IAP 315’s are on the 18.104.22.168-22.214.171.124_56428 Hercules firmware whereas the 104’s are on 126.96.36.199-188.8.131.52_55341 Orion. From what I understand the firmware version numbers have the match, so we need a 184.108.40.206-220.127.116.11_56428 Orion firmware. I could not find this firmware on the Aruba support site, the latest ones are the 6.4 series, there is no 6.5 on there at all. Any suggestions on how to proceed?

That is unfortunate. Since the 315's are absolutely brand new to the market we did not know what version of firmware it would come it (and that it would be incompatible with IAP 104). Do you have options?
(1) Can we downgrade the firmware on 315 to a matching version that will work with 104?
(2) Can the 104s's form a separate cluster on the same subnet as the 315s?

The minimum software version supported by IAP 315 is 184.108.40.206 as you can find it in the data sheet below.
So, we cannot downgrade the 315s below 4.3 or upgrade 104s to 4.3. You need to use them on separate clusters.
