Instant AP's not joining Instant network after firmware upgrade

Hi,

  

I have a wireless meshed network, AP-104 on main network, linking to a building with another ap-104, this remote network is connected to the main network no probelm.  If i plug in a laptop in the remote network i get an IP from the main LAN.

 

The problem is that no AP's on the remote site are joining the instant network, so when i look at the virtual controller i only see the two AP's providing the mesh link.

 

When i boot one of the AP-93's i get the following message over and over again:

 

Rebooting AP due to uplink ap denied me, from (MAC and IP of remote LAN Meshing AP)

 

I have just gone to the latest firmware 6.3.1.1-4.0.0.1_41049, this seemed to have caused the problem.

 

Any info / ideas appreciated,

 

Dave

This is not a new install and was working fine on the old firmware!

Do you have auto join enabled ?

 

Is it possible for you to check if the mesh point (console boot process) was able to go through the upgrade ?

Thank you

Turns out its a version 4 firmware issue.

 

We had just a basic layer 2 bridge, so the main lan (building a) was extended to the remote site (building b), in building b we have more AP's for extending wireless coverage in building b.

 

Version 4 stops this working!! 

 

knightmare day!

Could you also share with us the version number that you were using before which was working?

Re: Instant AP's not joining Instant network after firmware upgrade

I had a called raised with TAC, they didnt suggest to go to 4.0.0.2 at the time, and i needed to get it back up again so decided to roll back.

 

I had to roll backto 6.2.1.0-3.4.0.5 for it to work.

 

The latest available firmware on autoupdate will break the network described earlier.  Apparently the two mesh AP's will need to be in a dedicated instant network, This instant network when denies any other AP's in building b to join the instant network.  These AP's would need to be in their own instant network.
