adding iap 205 to iap 105 cluster

Hey Everybody,

 

We have an IAP 105 cluster that is on 6.3.1.8-4.0.0.7_44641, we recently purchased a couple of IAP 205s to add to it, i see that the minimum software version for the 200 series is Aruba InstantOS 4.1.1.0

 

When i try and update the cluster further, it says no new version available, Is it possible to add these IAP 205s to our IAP 105 cluster?

Re: adding iap 205 to iap 105 cluster

initially, i plugged in the new iap 205 and it never seemed to show up on the virtual controller, i then saw that there was a minimum aruba instant os of 4.1.1 and figured the 105s could be updated to that, but they dont seem to want to update any further than the version i mentioned in my previous post

Go to the support.arubanetworks.com and download the new version based on the IAP type

The newest version isn't posted to the cloud update servers right away, so in cases like that you'll have to download it from support.arubanetworks.com and manually update.

Thanks so much for the quick response!

 

Can i update straight from my 6.3.1.8-4.0.0.7_44641 to the 4.1.1.0 release?

 

Thanks again for the help

Re: adding iap 205 to iap 105 cluster

So i updated the firmware to 6.4.2.0-4.1.1.0_46028 and went to plug in the iap205 but it still doesnt seem to be autoconfiguring and joining the cluster, there are 2 amber lights lit up for 2.5 and 5, i will keep looking around to see what could be the issue, and connect to it with a console cord when booting up, but if anyone has any ideas, it would be appreciated. i know the port is configured to the right vlan

IN the console did you see the IAP get an IP address ?
Thank you

Re: adding iap 205 to iap 105 cluster

Both the 205's and 105's should be running the same version.

 

Also, check the sticker on the back of the IAPs and make sure the IAP-205 has the same country code as the 105's.  The sticker is a small white sticker that will say, for example, IAP-205-US.  If the country codes don't match this is expected behavior.  Also, make sure the 205 is an IAP and not a regular campus AP.

 

Lastly, do you have Auto-Join disabled on the existing cluster?
