AP won't join Controller

Hi Guys,

 

I'm testing a simple setup, AP and Controller in same L2 VLAN connected via a HPE switch.

I tried DHCP/DNS methods, and then the static method, but in all cases AP just doesn't join the Controller.

 

AP has image: ArubaOS Version 6.4.2.6-4.1.1.6   ; IP 172.16.0.103/24

Controller : Model: Aruba7005, Version: 6.4.2.3  ; IP 172.16.0.253/24 for loopback, .254/24 on interface ; Loopback used as Controller IP.

 

 

Any suggestions to fix the issue ? One of the line in the log says "Image Sync failed", so do i have to upgrade/downgrade image on AP manually ?

Re: AP won't join Controller

From the logs its looking like you are trying to associate an IAP to
the controller.
You cant associate an IAP with controller, you have a use an AP.

Re: AP won't join Controller

It says it is an IAP-225 in the bootup.  "Ardmore" is also the internal code name for an AP224/225 hardware.
