Re: How can I turn AP to IAP

If factory reset is not working, please share the following info from APBOOT:

Output of ?printenv'
Output of ?mfginfo?
Output of ?osinfo?

Also, another way of doing factory reset is the command ?factory_reset? in APBOOT.

However, I recommend against performing upgrade in APBOOT without clear instructions from Aruba.

Thanks,

Yan

Re: How can I turn AP to IAP

Thats wonderful that you solved it by upgrading the image! Exactly how did you do this? I am having the exact same problem, could you perhabs do a step by step solution and/or link me in the right direction? Many thanks!

Re: How can I turn AP to IAP

factory_reset command should have worked for you instead of purgeenv from the console.

Re: How can I turn AP to IAP

make sure to flash the correct partition , as the IAP has partiiton_1 containing "always" the IAP OS , and partition0 containing a copy from it , and can be temporarily flashed with controller-based flash for the IAP to be running as AP .

 

i had once the same problem and i had to setenv the correct partition and then i was able to recover or reflash .

It does not look like ethernet0 is plugged into anything.
