RAP-2 Invalid Intermediate Cert

I have a mobility controller running 6.3.1.23.  The customer has some RAP2 units that are working on this controller that they use on a semi regular basis.  I have one "new" RAP-2 that has never connected to the controller.  When i try to connect the RAP-2 to the contorller it fails at Master Connectivity saying "RC_ERROR_INVLAID_INTERMEDIATE_CERT".  I know the controllers have had certificate problems in the past.  Is there a way to get this RAP to connect since the other ones are working?

It is possible that the AP's zero-touch firmware is too old to connect to the controller via RAP.  It might need an upgrade before it can do that.

 

Here is what I would do:

 

- Connect the AP to the same subnet as the master controller and try to allow it to connect to the controller as a CAP (hopefully there is dhcp on that subnet).

- When the AP comes up reprovision it as a RAP through the GUI pointing to the public address of the controller.

Thanks for the quick reply.  Will setting up a CAP work for a RAP-2WGN?  I know their firmware is way different than any of the other RAP units.  It does not have the ability to be an instant AP, only a RAP unit with that webpage that you have to provison it to the controller.

If you boot up a RAP2 on the same subnet of the controller it should join it as a CAP in a few minutes.  It should download the latest image and then you would want to provision it from the controller as a RAP.

Re: RAP-2 Invalid Intermediate Cert

I was able to get the RAP2 to show up on the controller, but when i go to do the AP Installation, i can not get it to come back online.  What options would i need to set?  I have never had to provision a RAP2 this way, i have always used the Zero-Touch.  Should i be able to just set:

- AP Group

- Remote AP to Yes

- Remote AP Authentcaiton Method to Certificate

- Master Switch IP Address to Public IP

 

Is that the correct setup?

 

thank you.

I finally got it to work.  Had to set the Host switch name to aruba-master and then the master switch ip to the public ip.  worked like a charm after that.  Thank you for your help!
