RAP5-WN Remote Mesh Portal

Hi,

I'm trying to deploy a RAP5-WN as a Remote Mesh Portal in ArubaOS 5.0.0.1.
It shows up as a portal, correct band and so on.

Problem is when I try to connect an AP61 as Mesh Point to this RAP5.
Just doesn't come up. I read the manual, added the Mesh Private VLAN to the profile. Added DHCP server config in the RAP5, added a Virtual AP with the Mesh Private VLAN and forward mode split tunnel. Lots of extra config for the remote mesh portal!

If i connect my console to AP61, this is what I can see;
AP rebooted Fri Dec 31 16:10:54 PST 1999; Mesh link could not be sustained for 15 minutes.

Easiest Way

The best way to set this up is with the remote mesh portal wizard that is under the "AP Wizard" under configuration in ArubaOS 5.0. Give it a try...

Please try pure mesh network setup first

Please ignore "error removing br0 from bridge vlan xyz". That should not cause any issues.
I think the real issue is "mesh link not staying up for longer duration". In such case, I will first configure pure mesh network to see everything works fine and then convert it to Remote mesh network.

Re: RAP5-WN Remote Mesh Portal

I will try the wizard and see what comes out of that!
