AP keep rebooting and not getting an IP address

Hi,

I am new to Aruba, I have new Aruba AP, I am trying to deploy it in my lab first. For some reason this AP keep rebooting and not getting an IP address. Below is the console output I am getting:

 

[ 7.901741] bonding: bond0: enslaving eth1 as a backup interface with a down link.
[ 8.125495] AP xml model 66, num_radios 2 (jiffies 3859)

Running ADP...cat: /tmp/master: No such file or directory
Done. Master is

Re: AP keep rebooting and not getting an IP address

Your AP did get an ip address, but it did not find a discovery method to find your controller:

 

192.168.4.5 255.255.255.0 192.168.4.1

 

192.168.4.5 is the ip address.

 

What discovery method are you using for your AP to find your controller?

Hi,

  I have the ADP and DHCP option 43 both for discovery. Any recommendation?

Re: AP keep rebooting and not getting an IP address

Is it on the same VLAN as the controller?  I would stop the AP at the apboot> prompt and type "dhcp" and see if it discovers anything.  Has this ever worked for any other APs?

Re: AP keep rebooting and not getting an IP address

Hi,

  I did checked out the DHCP option from the AP and it came out OK. After talking to an Sr. engineer in my compay he recommanded that I should setup the DNS server and reset the AP  and that was the solution now it is working.
