RAP 3 convertion to normal campus AP

Hello i was wondering if this is possible? i dont have a rap3 to test right now.. but i ask because the option is there... but i also attended to a rap3 webinar in it which says

üTwo modes of operation
•Instant AP (IAP) – factory default
•Remote AP with Aruba controller
 
I do understand here that it just possible instant ap and connected to a controller by putting it as rap...
 
But what about the campus AP? can you convert this one in a campus AP?
 
Cheers

Sorry missed that .

 

These are RAP3s operating modes :

 

OPERATING MODES
• Wireless
- 802.11b/g/n Mobility Controller-managed RAP
- 802.11b/g/n Aruba Instant AP
- 802.11b/g/n air monitor
- Hybrid WLAN and air monitor
- Configurable to support 802.11n HT 20/40 channels or
mixed-mode deployment IEEE 802.11b/g/n

 

So it can just work as a RAP or as an Instant.

 

 

Thank you

The RAP-108 / 109 is the only model supporting IAP, RAP, and CAP modes.

Re: RAP 3 convertion to normal campus AP

Although I have not had success in "converting" directly to a Campus AP; a RAP-3 can definitly operate as a CAP; in fact I am on one right now.   The only way I was able to do it was to convert the RAP-3 to a RAP on a controller first.  Then once on the controlller, reprovision the RAP-3 as a campus AP by simply chaging the "Remote AP" section under Authentication Method from Yes to No on the provisioning page.   Assuming the discovery settings are setup right, it should boot as a campus AP.

Re: RAP 3 convertion to normal campus AP

I know Marcus said its not supported... and if you can do it maybe you can but maybe something wrong don tknow can happen like the rap3 doing funny stuff....

Re: RAP 3 convertion to normal campus AP

It is not in a customer production environment; however the RAP datasheet says all RAPs can operate as Campus APs.   I think it is just the conversion process that doesn't work/isn't supported.
