I want to manage IAP-275 with my controller

When I plug in my IAP-275 it boots as an Instant AP.  I do not want that.  I want to be able to use my controller that already has my Aruba 225s on it.  How do I by pass the Instant AP part?   And get my controller to see it?

Thank you for your reply.  I followed the link and found the instructions to convert  the AP from instant to campus to use with the mobility controller but here are screen shots of the error I ran into:

Any ideas?  we are a campus and use vlans for each building.

What version of ArubaOS code are you using?

I am not for sure what information I need to give you but here is what I think you are asking for:

This is the information of the IAP-275:

2015-05-12 10:54:20 PDT
Version:

and here is the information of my controller:

Controller > About

Version:6.4.2.12

Thank you again for your help!!

After it fails, SSH into the instant AP and run the following commands to see if you can get a clue why it is not working.

 

Show vpnstatus

Show upgrade

Show log system

You need to run the command right after you try to upgrade and fail.  The log looks like you just rebooted it.

Re: I want to manage IAP-275 with my controller

When you say "upgrade" do you mean when I am attempting to convert it from IAP to AP?  and where do I run that command?  I apologize for not understanding.  I am new to Aruba.

Try to convert it using the GUI like you did before.  When the conversion fails, run the 3 commands on the commandline of the Instant AP.
