Re: PSK based authentication: swarm is not approved in Airwave.

Hi,

Are you seeing this messages in Airwave events log? Could you try edit the VC key and check the status.

 

We see this issue , when we try to add an IAP to Airwave which is part of cluster previously, aiwave thinks it is old IAP which is already added to Airwave and it wont accept.Airwave recongnize each cluster based on GUID.

 

1) # show running | include virtual

2) copy the virtual-controller key

3) # conf t

4) # virtual-controller-key <paste copied kay>

5) change th last 2 digit of the key
sample key

virtual-controller-key 1bc58c2c014f78440e92d71fec0bc72428de77cef98b92624c

virtual-controller-key 1bc58c2c014f78440e92d71fec0bc72428de77cef98b92625d



6) # commit apply.

 

Regards,

Pavan

Re: PSK based authentication: swarm is not approved in Airwave.

Yes, if we are seeing same error for all IAPs. How did you reset the database?

 

We could reset the database by running below command

 

#amp_disable

#bootstrap_db

#amp_enable -now

#amp_version

copy the old backup file to /tmp and restore

#amp_restore -d /tmp/<backupfilename>

 

Note: Make sure, restore same version backup file. We cannot restore lowerversion backup file on higher version.

If you still see the issue after bootstrap, try reset the VC key and check the status.

Re: PSK based authentication: swarm is not approved in Airwave.

It's multiple VC'S (Something like above 300 different branches )

Is there any other way?

Re: PSK based authentication: swarm is not approved in Airwave.

Have you tried resetting the VC key and checked ? Try restore the same version backup on server, if you have. If not, resetting the VC key is only option.

 

Make sure, you have valid Airwave license aswell.

Re: PSK based authentication: swarm is not approved in Airwave.

Thanks,I will try again resetting one of the VC's key (via command line like you mentioned before,even due i tried on one unit,and it still in the event log...)

I'm now using the 90days trial license , should i install my official license? (the 90day license got limitations ? )
