AP-275 on 6.5 code

I'm having a weird issue with a 275. Also have a TAC case open.


I have a 275 mounted out on the scoreboard of our school's softball field. This connects back to the network via a separate p2p wireless link. This has worked well, up until now.


I recently purchased two new controllers (7220) and loaded on to them. The reason is to support some 315s which I also just purchased. I will be moving all of my APs to these controllers.


I moved the 275 to the new controllers/software. It booted up ok, loaded the new software and rebooted successully. However, it only stayed up for about 2 minutes and went "down". After being down for around 45 minutes it came back up again, but once again just for 2 minutes. This pattern repeats over and over again.


One of the times while it was up, I moved it back to my old controller/software. It worked fine there, with no issues at all.


I removed the 275 and brought it to my office, plugged it directly into a POE switch there and upgraded it again. It does not display the same behaviour when connected directly to a POE switch. It works fine on the 6.5 software and new controller.


So, it would seem that the 6.5 software does not "like" the POE injector I have out on the softball field scoreboard, however does "like" it. At least that's what I'm assuming.


The question I have, is that why would one version of software be ok with the injector and another not be ok with it? Or is there something else potentially happening?

So if the 275 configured as a mesh point or is it a Campus AP (I wasn't clear from the description, you mention a separate PtP link, so I'm assuming the 275 is NOT doing mesh and is just like a wired AP), and when you move it, are all the controllers part of the same cluster/group (master-local, whatever) or are you moving it to different controller instances on different AOS code levels?


What is the type/model of power injector you are using?

It is a Campus AP.


When I move it, I am moving it to a different set of master/local on different firmware. They are separate clusters.
