Instant APs cannot be converted to Campus APs and then terminate to a Controller

Hello All,

 

We have a 105AP running the Code of an Instant AP. I have tried all possible ways to convert this AP to a Campus AP (CAP) to no avail. 

 

It simply just comes up as an Instant AP. 

 

I even set the Instant AP to factory default and still.

 

Even after setting it to factory default, I connected it to a Physical Port on the 620 Controller. It still came up as an Instant.

 

Can Instant APs be really converted to Caps?

You have to go under Maintenence> Convert to point it to an active controller to convert.

Yep! Tried that over 5 times and still could not get it to convert to a CAP.

What version of code is on the controller?

Unfortunately, you need a minimum of ArubaOS 6.1 on the controller to convert the APS.

Do you think the Software Version on the 620 Controller could be the issue?

**bleep**! Oh well.

 

I always knew we might need to upgrade at sometime.

 

Is there a link or documentation where I can reference this?
