Controller constantly reboots AP

I have a AP that is causing me trouble.  The controller keeps requsting a reboot of a AP when I join it to the controller to be managed as a Campus AP.  I have another Campus AP that the controller managers, and this one has no issues staying up.   

 

I have factory reset the AP in question a couple of times, and get the same rebooting result when trying to convert to a controller managed device.  

 

Any ideas?

Re: Controller constantly reboots AP

The problem might be related to this message:

 

No available license type SECURITYGW for AP

 

This usually implies there are not sufficient PEFNG licenses to allow the AP to connect.

 

check the "show ap database" output , flags column.  I suspect this AP will show an "L" flag if it shows at all.

 

check available licenses on the controller.

show  license-usage  ap

Re: Controller constantly reboots AP

PEM licensing was not installed on my controller, which was causing the issue.  Got my hands on that license, installed, and AP2 has been working fine.
