Faulty AP-105 not attaching to controller

Hi all, got a 105 not attaching to a controller, its brand new. Just done 3 others and this one sits at "Running ADP..." and then after a few minutes reboots. Tried manually inputting our controller IP. Any ideas? Its picked up the correct firmware, just won't register.

 

Thanks.

You might want to publish the boot log for us to see.

Are you using the same port as the other APs?  Are you sure it's getting an IP address? 

 

If you are sure it's getting an address and it's on the same VLAN as the other APs, purge it and see if it comes back up.  To do that, hit the Enter key when prompted during the boot, then type "purge".  After that finishes, type "save".  Now reboot the AP and see if it connects.

 

If it doesn't, like Colin said, post the boot log and let us see where it is breaking down.

Tried a purge, really odd, all the others worked fine, I've done hundreds of these!

What is the AP using to find the controller?

 

Like Olino says, stop it at apboot and type dhcp.  Send us that output.

It has the correct IP for our network and I can ping it from my workstation.

Yes, but what is that access point using to discover the controller?

Well it hangs on Running ADP so I assume its doing that. Is there a way I can hard code it, should'nt need to do this as I've just done a load of others. Thanks.

At the apboot> prompt type "setenv master <ip address of controller>" and then type "save".

 

That will not deal with the underlying issue, however, which is that the AP cannot find the controller using a standard discovery method.  You might have to troubleshoot that, as well.
