Aruba AP 105 keep rebooting

HI,

i'm trying to work with Aruba AP 105 model.

i've connected it to the Aruba controller, using these commands:

 

pboot> purgeenv
Un-Protected 1 sectors
.done
Erased 1 sectors
Writing 
apboot> set master <controller-ip>
apboot> set serverip <controller-ip>
apboot> set bootcmd tftpboot
apboot> save
Saving Environment to Flash...
Un-Protected 1 sectors
apboot> boot

 

but after that the AP can't come up - it's in a loop of reboots and the console output is:

 

eth0 up: 1 Gb/s full duplex

any idea what went wrong?

just a note: i've managed once to add it to the controller using the above commands. 

(the controller showed the AP in the AP list)

but when i changed the AP name (in the controller under Configuration -> AP Installation) the AP got stuck in the reboot loop..

when i retried to attach the AP to the controller i got again the reboot loop..

 

thanks for any help :)

Re: Aruba AP 105 keep rebooting

thanks!it works now.

but i still have some reboots from time to time withe this reason:

Reboot requested by controller shutting down watchdog process (many will restart it)

 

how can i disable it? so i won't have these reboots all the time?

 

thanks!
