When it boots up, does it search for a controller or come up in Instant?
(you can console in)

I have IAP(converted)  an AP  attached to the controler and running. I do not have easy access to AP and IAP to check on console

 

What I'm looking for, is a way to differenciate AP an IAP on the controler while they are already running....

Is the AP a CAP or RAP connecting to the controller?

An IAP working as a CAP will still create an IPSEC tunnel to the controller. Technically making it a sort of local RAP.

Type: show crypto ipsec sa
Grab the Inner IP and cross reference that IP by doing a show ap database long.

I believe you will then be able to find out which one is the IAP.

you can use show ap image version. Assuming you didn't do take to the apboot to do the IAP to CAP conversion, and just used the webUI method, then the AP will still have the instant load in it's second bank.

 

Example below - this is hard to see due to the rediculous width of the output, but you can see one AP below 192.168.1.8 has an instant image in the backup image bank (6.3.1.4-4.0.0.5) , but the other AP shows two ArubaOS versions hence is unlikely to be a converted IAP (see note below)

 

(sg-7030) #show ap image version

Note:
It is possible to totally remove the iAP image from the 2nd s/w bank on a converted iAP->CAP, but this can only be done from the apboot and by someone who 100% intended to make the AP unable to be recovered to iAP by pressing the reset button. If there is no chance that happened in your customer, then you can trust the above method.
