AP205 Won't Provision

Hi , i have 8 ap's at one of our remote locations and they all work fine connecting back to our controler which is a 7205 unit. We have a total of 32 ap's and have 32 licences for them. The controler is at our main campus location and this remote location is connected back via a IPSec VPN. All 8 have been working great and managment wanted to add a few more units to that location. So after provisioning them at our main campus i moved them over to the remote location and hooked them up. They get a valid ip that is pingable, can ping the aruba-master from the local subnet at that location. The ap's get a good ip, but never come up in the controler! Besides it being a licenseing issue which i doubt as i can plug these units in at our main campus and they work 100% with out issues. The ap just has a blinking power light and a flashing enet light. On a side note i have other ap's on other vpn's with out any of these issues as well. Any other ideas why the first 8 are working but anything after that dosent?

Re: AP205 Won't Provision

"Show log system" on the controller command line might give you an idea.

Re: AP205 Won't Provision

When i do a "Show log system" i get incomplete comand I have tried this in enable mode as well as the normal login mode via cli.

 

Is there a syntax change due to os versions like on cisco iso sometimes? Im running 6.4.3.1 on the 7205 unit.

Re: AP205 Won't Provision

In the AP-Group that the AP is in, there is an AP system profile.  I would try setting the SAPD MTU to 1400 to see if it helps.  That would lower the MTU so that it would not be fragmented through a VPN tunnel.

Re: AP205 Won't Provision

That helped a bit. The unit in question showed up under the provisoning tab then went away and came back. I then tried to push it to the correct group and now shows up on that tab randomly. Is there any thing else i can try or tweak?

Re: AP205 Won't Provision

Could any of this have to do with licensing? One of these ap's at this location just went into  hold status after a reboot of the controler. It says i have a total of 31 ap's i can have but only 24 are currently working. Or is this all the same issue with the vpn?

Guru Elite

Re: AP205 Won't Provision

Type "show ap database".  If your problem is with licensing the AP will have the "IL" flags.

 

Type "show log system 50" to see if you have any clues about what the problem could be...
