AP-305 system status led Powersave mode

Hi, I have installed into my network 4 ap model AP-305, but only one show always system status led color "Amber-solid", i don't know why!

The installation guide show this state how "Device Ready: Power safe mode (802.3af) ".

do you know how this ap show always this state?

The ap is connected to Switch HPE OfficeConnect 1920 48G PoE+ (370W), and port show power to 17%.

can you help me, please?

Re: AP-305 system status led Powersave mode

Do you have LLDP enabled on those switchports?  That is typically how the AP negotiates higher power on that port.

Can you share a show tech from one of the IAPs in this state?

Re: AP-305 system status led Powersave mode

That status can be due to operating in 802.3af reduced power mode.

 

Check this thread and this section of datasheet:

Re: AP-305 system status led Powersave mode

Please check if LLDP  is enabled on the port where AP is connected.

 

Probably you might have to enable it at interface level.

Re: AP-305 system status led Powersave mode

It is a limitation when use 802.3af. It reduces performance but stills operating.

I saw this before.

Thank you,

Re: AP-305 system status led Powersave mode

Hi,

 

From the logs that you have attached,

 

Power Status
------------
Item Value
---- -----
Power Supply : POE-AF
LLDP Power : Successfully negotiated at 17.0W
Current Operational State : USB port enabled;

 

From 300 series datasheet:

 

http://www.arubanetworks.com/assets/ds/DS_AP300Series.pdf

 

- Unrestricted functionality with 802.3at PoE

- When using IPM, the AP may enter power-save mode with reduced functionality when powered by an 802.3af PoE source (see details on Intelligent Power Monitoring elsewhere in this datasheet) -

-Without IPM, the USB port is disabled when the AP is powered by an 802.3af PoE source • 

-Maximum (worst-case) power consumption: 13W (PoE) or 11W (DC) - -Excludes power consumed by external USB device (and internal overhead); this could add up to 6.5W (PoE) or 5.5W (DC) for a 5W/1A USB device •

Re: AP-305 system status led Powersave mode

Hi Singla, ok, but whit my AP is it possibile for you disable IPM?

I have installed a hp 1920 48 port switch dedicated only for my ap, and the power is not my problem!! in this switch i use only 4 port... :-)

 

I have ap 305 whith this version: 6.5.1.0-4.3.1.0_57768
