Newly converted IAPs to Campus APs registers the controller as Air Monitor APs.

Hi,

 

I have a setup wherein the country code is different from the country code defined under the regulatory domain of AP groups and it is working fine with my setup of over 200 + APs. So the requirement of having both as same appears not as an compulsion link 

 

I have recently converted over 20+ Instant APs to Campus APs to register with the controller. The problem is they all are showing up as Air Monitors. 

Below is the radio related configuration:

Re: Newly converted IAPs to Campus APs registers the controller as Air Monitor APs.

What was the country code of the IAPs before conversion?
What model IAPs are these?
What version of controller code?

Re: Newly converted IAPs to Campus APs registers the controller as Air Monitor APs.

1) From the AP box the description I see is: ARuba IAP-315(RW).Not sure if this mean to signify "rest of the world".

Below is the network log for one of the AP which comes up as Airmonitor after its conversion from IAP to Campus AP
(WLC_002) #show log system 50 | include a8:bd:27:c1:81:2e
Apr 23 13:31:32 :311002: <WARN> |AP a8:bd:27:c1:81:2e@172.25.98.50 sapd| Rebooting: Rebooting after provisioning
Apr 23 13:33:59 :399803: <4012> <ERRS> |stm| An internal system error has occurred at file sapm_ap_mgmt.c function sapm_proc_hello_req line 12411 error Mismatched Regulatory Domain for AP(a8:bd:27:c1:81:2e), Ctrl CC(US) AP CC(RW). AP will come up in AM Mode .


2) These are IAP-315


3) The version of Controller code is : 6.5.0.2

IAPs that were ROW  but now converted to campus, cannot come up in an ap-group that is US...
