Aruba AP 105 Reboot Loop

Community,

I have attached a brand new 105 AP to the network and get the following:

 

APBoot 1.2.4.4 (build 26618)

The AP is stuck in a reboot loop. It obviously sees the controller and get an IP but it never binds to the controller. Controller is a 3200XM running 6.4.4.11 code. Any ideas? I read a few similar articles on here, one of which said to RMA the AP.

 

Thanks.

Statically configure the ip, subnet mask, default gateway and "masterip", and see if it still happens.

Re: Aruba AP 105 Reboot Loop

Long story short, APBoot 1.2.4.4 cannot handle ICMP redirects without crashing.  Later revisions of the AP-105 hardware APboot have this patched.  The only workaround is to avoid ICMP redirects, by statically configuring the parameters.
