AP not in controller

I'm sure I'm doing something stupid...but...

 

I'm setting up a new master-master pair for RAPs in our organization. The controllers are up in the DMZ and CPS is off. I can ping them from anywhere internally.

 

I plug in a new AP and it comes up on my Aruba-master. I provision the AP and change the master hostname to rap-master.domain.com. I've consoled into the AP and it finds the rap-master with no problems. It has an address and it can ping the rap-master with an excellent respose times. 

 

However, the AP never shows up in the new controller (rap-master). The devices can ping each other so I'm wondering what could be left. The AP system profile for the "default" group is default. Eventually, the AP goes over to the original master again and I'm back at square one (shows as "up" for original amount of time. Doesn't reboot).

Re: AP not in controller

Have you configured  DHCP service for VPN at the conroller? 

go to Configuration > VPN Services > IPSEC > Address Pools and add an DHCP pool for RAP

Re: AP not in controller

I have not, but i'm not setting it up as a RAP yet. Its just an AP215. Shouldn't need that parameter yet.

Re: AP not in controller

RAP will not show up if you don’t have a VPN DHCP pool at the controller that RAP is going to terminate. 

You only need a small private IP addesse pool for the number of RAPs you have.

Re: AP not in controller

Its all internal so far. I wanted to get an AP provisioned on it before messing with external DNS records and such.

Re: AP not in controller

There is no RAP right now. Its just a normal AP215 that i'm trying to provision on an internal secondary controller set.

Re: AP not in controller

and just in case...  Yes, the controller VRRP address is the 192.168.241.0 address. Its a /23 network.

Re: AP not in controller

If you provision AP as RAP, you need VPN DHCP pool.  You can create DHCP pool at both controllers that VRRP.

Re: AP not in controller

I have not gotten to the RAP portion yet. For now I'm setting up the AP internally. The AP gets dhcp and can associate to the Aruba-master. I want to to associate to a different master. Both controllers are internal. Ignore this being a RAP for now.
