Resetting IAP 225 to defaults

Hello,

I have 2  Aruba iap 225s that I need to reset to their factory settings. I was successful in doing so with two others, but these two will not allow me to reset.

 

I am holding paperclip on reset button, powering up the AP and it does not reset.

 

The other two I did the same for, after about 30 seconds I saw the instant SSID, I connected to this, made my changes and everything was good.

If there are any other IAPs on the same VLAN/subnet as these 225s, they will never broadcast "instant" and join the existing cluster.  Have you tried to bring them up on their own VLAN?

Re: Resetting IAP 225 to defaults

I thought resetting them to their factory defaults would force them to boot on a differenct subnet/VLAN?

 

My issue is these APs were configured by a third party, and I never to resolve configuration issues as they will not connect the way they were supposed to be setup.

Re: Resetting IAP 225 to defaults

They are still bound by the Campus LAN switching.  They cannot switch VLANs on a reset...they discover other IAPs that are already up and then just join the cluster.  This can be disabled in the virtual controller but it's an ease of use feature.

OK that makes sense. At any rate, I was able to get into the configs of these, the last two just took a bit longer to come back up after a reset.
