IAP 205 Static IP and DHCP

We have a cluster of instant APs (105s) that I was trying to add some new iap 205s to. I upgraded the firmware on on the existing cluster and the new APs to 4.1.1.10. There is no DHCP server available so all the APs are using static IP addresses. I assigned IP, mask, gateway, and master to the new 205s via the setenv commands and was sure to save before rebooting (I can even see the IP information with a printenv before booting).

 

Of the 4 new APs, all configured on the same switch with the same switchport settings, only 1 connected properly to the existing virtual controller. The other three are all attempting to get an IP address via DHCP, despite being able to see the static IP information with a printenv, and then resorting to the default IP and not joining the controller. I've both rebooted the APs and purged/reconfigured multiple times.

 

I'm completely out of ideas, especially since one worked. Has anyone experienced anything like this, or know why the 205 AP would prefer DHCP over a statically assigned IP?

Re: IAP 205 Static IP and DHCP

Please show us the output of Printenv and the bootup log for the IAP that is having the issue.  Double check your work with the article here:  http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Controller-less-WLANs/How-do-I-configure-a-static-IP-addreess-to-an-Instant-Access/ta-p/185590

Re: IAP 205 Static IP and DHCP

You are not supposed to set a master on an IAP.  Type "setenv master" and press enter to remove that entry.

Re: IAP 205 Static IP and DHCP

I removed the master, also turns out I put in the wrong gateway parameter. "gateway"" instead of "gatewayip".... awkward. Anyways works now, thank you!
