Server ip manually configuration through AP CLI

Hello, we need to configure APs (AP-93) without link to the controller. The procedure we have thought is configuring the server ip via AP CLI, and after that connect the AP to the network (they are located in another subnets, so broadcast method does not work; also we haven't got access to configuring DNS neither DHCP). The problems is that we cannot find the command to do that. If we configure the serverip variable (serverip =172.16.0.254), the AP try to download the firmware from 0.172.16.0 (instead of 172.16.0.254):

DHCP broadcast 5
DHCP IP address: 172.16.10.6
DHCP subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
DHCP def gateway: 172.16.10.1
DHCP DNS server: 0.0.0.0
DHCP DNS domain:
Using eth0 device
TFTP from server 0.172.16.0; our IP address is 172.16.10.6; sending through gateway 172.16.10.1
Filename 'mips32.ari'.
Load address: 0x2000000
Loading: T T T T T T T T T T
Retry count exceeded; starting again

This is the printenv output:

apboot> printenv
bootdelay=2
baudrate=9600
autoload=n
boardname=Scapa
servername=aruba-master
bootcmd=boot ap
autostart=yes
bootfile=mips32.ari
ethaddr=00:24:6c:c7:cf:bc
ethact=eth0
serverip==172.16.0.254
stdin=serial
stdout=serial
stderr=serial


Any idea? Thanks in advace.

best regards.

setenv master

Please use "setenv master 172.16.0.254".

Your syntax is incorrect in the serverip variable, in that you do NOT use an equals sign. Please remove it by doing a "setenv serverip". Type "save" after you are finished, then "boot".
