Did my AP license expire on my controller? I can't tell

My Aruba 2400 wireless controller is not enabling my access point. It was working before but now it is shown in a down status. Not sure if its a license expiration problem but I see I still have a limit of 48.

Try show license verbose"

 

I mean, type "show keys"

Re: Did my AP license expire on my controller? I can't tell

If you type "show ap database", it will tell you why your APs are disabled.  48 APs should be able to connect.  What version of code is this?  Is this a  2400 controller?

Is the access point pingable? Type "show log system 50" to see if you can get any clues.

Re: Did my AP license expire on my controller? I can't tell

I can't ping it. I also see the IP address is in the wrong subnet and need to be changed. Is there a way to reset the AP or change the IP address.

Re: Did my AP license expire on my controller? I can't tell

Did this controller/AP combination ever work?

If not, resetting the access point requires a cable that we do not sell anymore, or the Telnet SOE method over here:  http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Controller-Based-WLANs/How-do-I-SOE-into-a-switch-using-SSH/ta-p/180852

 

This is not simple..  You basically setup the SOE (terminal session) on the controler using the instructions, first, then plug the access point into the port specified in the command (2/0) to see if the access point is booting up and what ip address it is getting, etc.  You can stop the access point by pressing enter repeatedly until you see apboot>

 

When you see apboot, type "erase flash" and then type "save".  If it takes, you should be able to plug the access point in the same VLAN as the controller and it should discover it.  There are so many ways this could go wrong, or your access point could be fried, so look forward to being patient.
