AP-125 does not maintain up status

Hi, 

 

I have configured a 3200XM controller that I want my AP-125 to talk to. Instead of going the DHCP route, I decided to just assign the AP a static IP and it seems to connect to the controller. The AP shows up in the AP list but it only shows a status of "up" for about 20-30 seconds after it is rebooted. After that, it shows a "down" status and does not recover unless I log in to the AP CLI and give it a reboot. 

 

On the CLI I see:

 

eth1:   1Gbs Full duplex, port  0, queue  0
shutting down watchdog process (nanny will restart it)...
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): eth1: link becomes ready
bonding: bond0: link status definitely up for interface eth1.
bonding: bond0: making interface eth1 the new active one.
 
        <<<<<       Welcome to the Access Point     >>>>>
 
~ # cert_cap=1
vap aruba000 vlan is 0. discovering tunnel vlan
vap aruba100 vlan is 0. discovering tunnel vlan
bonding: bond0: releasing active interface eth1
bonding: bond0: now running without any active interface !
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth1: link is not ready
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): eth1: link becomes ready
eth1: Link down
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth1: link is not ready
eth1:   1Gbs Full duplex, port  0, queue  0
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): eth1: link becomes ready
 
I am only connecting the ETH1 interface on the AP to the second port on the controller. I don't understand why it goes from:
 
eth1: link becomes ready <<I assume this is when it is shown as the "up" status on the controller
 
to a few lines later: 
 
releasing active interface eth1
 
Why is it releasing the interface? 
 
Thanks

You should move your connection to e0

Oh ok, will do in the morning and report back. Why is that may I ask? 

 

And also if I run "show log system 50" on the controller CLI I see errors for:

 

Reboot reason: AP rebooted (date); Unable to set up IPSec tunnel, Error: RC_ERROR_IKEP1

Aruba recommends using e0

Are you setting this AP as RAP by any chance ? or do you have CPSec enabled ?

 

Because campus APs should build up a GRE Tunnel unless configured as a RAP 

 

Also can you check your ethernet port 1 configuration profile for that particular AP-Group that the AP is part of :

Re: AP-125 does not maintain up status

I got the access point to show up and stay up on the controller once moving to eth0 so thank you very much for your help. I just have a couple questions:

 

Is there a way to disable the wireless beacons until I am ready to use them? Right now I am just disabling the whole port that the AP is connected to the controller on and will enable when I am ready to bring the AP back on line. 

 

Since I am not ready to use the AP just yet, and I do not provision the AP, there is on way to log into it until I set up AP Installation and specify a username and pasword, correct? I can pick up the WLAN SSID from my phone but I don't believe I set up any credentials yet.

You can turn off the radios under the radio 11a/g11 profiles :
