Migrate from A200 controller to A620 controller

Dear All,

 

Happy New year, first thing I am a noob with this Aruba (I do know how to work on CLI) and we are currently on A200 controller with 3 AP, now I got new controller A620 with 2 AP (AP-93) which I tried and tried to configure but the APs are always on monitor mode.

 

I have been searching on the forums but couldn't find it how to so creating this new post.

 

- is it possible I can copy the running configuration from A200 3.xx OS to A620 6.1xx controller if so how ?

 

Kind Regards,

 

Abdul

Re: Migrate from A200 controller to A620 controller

i have 2nd AP now i will try to plug it and and see if it goes ok

 

the steps i took to install AP to this controller are ( correct me plz if i am wrong)

 

plug it in to console

 

gave statis ip

 

setenv ipaddr x.x.x.x

setenv netmask x.x.x.x

setenv gatwayip x.x.x.x

servername < ip of controller>

save

boot

 

and then it will start downloading thing and i can see it on ap installation GUI window from there i select and click on provision and select the default profile and apply

 

i am sure it should pick up my SSID i configure even on the monitor status it says no SSID
