AP 103 console port

Hello

It seems that the new ap 103 does not have console port(or at least i dont see it on the picture of the AP 103)

but on the datasheet it says

 

Serial console interface (proprietary; optional adapter
cable available)

what does this mean??

Carlos,

The AP-103 does have a console port but it uses a special 4 pin adapter like the RAP-3. The SKU for the adapter is AP-CBL-SER.

 

Here is a underside image of the AP 103 from the installation guide.

The AP 103 console port is between the Ethernet and DC power port when looking at the rear. It has a plastic cover that you can just see if you look closely. The adapter is sold separately.

Re: AP 103 console port

IT is possible to buy one and use it on different AP 103

I mean just for troubleshooting purpuses....

If i need to console it, i would go and  put the console port, and went i finish i would remove it? i mean instead of buying one for each AP.

Cheers

Absolutely, you only need to connect the adapter when you're troubleshooting and you only need one.

>>The SKU for the adapter is AP-CBL-SER.

 

while pricelist says 75dollar for this crap cable , im about to build myself like on the old AP65 with the SPOE cable , anyone has some hint which pins are connected how on that crap cable ?

 

i really wonder why aruba produces such a port and doesnt keep on the old-school console port style like on newer AP/RAP's ...

 

anyways... someone has some hint , perhaps some eBay cable which does the job ?

Re: AP 103 console port

I bealive they did that to drop the prices of the APS(well one of the things they did)... why do you think the AP 103 is at that price???
