New to aruba and I bought a A200 for practice but it does not have an image on it.

Hi,

So I bought a A200 wireless controller for testing purposes. When I received it, it did not have an image on it. I have tried using kermit to load a new image but fails at 56 packets and 3k of the file. Every single time. It says error exceeded.  I have tired to set it up below is my printenv output.

 

cpboot> printenv

gatewayip=10.0.3.1
server=10.0.1.4

 

ping results:

I would really like to get this to work.

Re: New to aruba and I bought a A200 for practice but it does not have an image on it.

Re: New to aruba and I bought a A200 for practice but it does not have an image on it.

Hi,

The code version is A200_5.0.4.15_41905 and for the tftp server it is just a windows box with tftpd32 running. I know everything is setup correctly outside of the aruba controller. I am really new to aruba equipment and could not find any good documents about the A200. Any help is very much appreciated.

Re: New to aruba and I bought a A200 for practice but it does not have an image on it.

Got that. Image version seems to be good. I have attached PDF for upgrading the image from cpboot.

I tried those steps and it gave me an error. Below is the output of my steps.

 

Here is the error:


cpboot> upgrade 0 A200_5.0.4.15_41905

Re: New to aruba and I bought a A200 for practice but it does not have an image on it.

It looks the parameter for the serverip is not taken properly as i could see only server and no serverip.

 

cpboot> printenvbootcmd=boot flashbootdelay=2baudrate=9600

ipaddr=10.0.3.99dns=10.0.2.2

netmask=255.255.255.0

gatewayip=10.0.3.1

server=10.0.1.4 ===================> this should be serverip

stdin=serialstdout=serialstderr=serial

 

Could you please input below parameter and try again

 

cpboot > setenv serverip <ip address of the tftp server>

 

Thank you,

Ok so I tried that but now I am getting another error: it is below

Below is the results from the printenv :

Re: New to aruba and I bought a A200 for practice but it does not have an image on it.

Also i could  notice gatewayip and serverip is different. you may need to set the serverip in the same subnet like "10.0.3.5" for example. Also what device the serverip going to be here ?

 

You could setting up the serverip as your computer plugged into to the controller console and try to put  them on same vlan in the range of 10.0.3.x

 

ipaddr=10.0.3.99
dns=10.0.2.2
netmask=255.255.255.0
gatewayip=10.0.3.1
server=10.0.1.4

Re: New to aruba and I bought a A200 for practice but it does not have an image on it.

I guess I am not understanding how this is suppose to be setup. I currently only have an A200 mobility controller and a AP125. I both connected to a cisco swtich and are on the same vlan. I thought the serverip was just for the TFTP server. That is a windows computer.

 

What do you mean "What device the serverip going to be"? do I need some sort of server to run everything. IS there any good documentation out there for all of this. I have not been able to find anything.

 

Thank you for all your help.

Re: New to aruba and I bought a A200 for practice but it does not have an image on it.

Thanks for reply I just want to confirm who holds the ip address of the tftp server. Your below comments confirms that`s going to be your windows computer running a tftp server where image has been hosted.

 

Find below note. You can also call TAC support hotline to help you out.

 

cpboot>setenv serverip x.x.x.x

cpboot>setenv ipaddr x.x.x.x

cpboot>setenv netmask x.x.x.x

cpboot>setenv gatewayip x.x.x.x

cpboot>setenv serverip x.x.x.x      (note: if you are running the tftp program on the same PC then the gatewayip and serverip should be same)

 

Thank you.
