Rel. 8.2: Convert Standalone to Master

Hi!

 

Is it possible to Change a standalone 70xx with 8.2 to a master?

I've just Upgraded succesfully an 70xx to 8.2 and want to add two new 72xx as local (because of capacity reasons).

 

[mm] (config) #localip "10.100.231.6" ipsec "xxxxxxx"
ERROR: Command can be executed on MASTER only.

 

Or is the master role only available on a MM (virtualized or hw-appliance)? But also VMM has to be licensed, right?

 

 

Thanks in advance  and kind Regards

Re: Rel. 8.2: Convert Standalone to Master

In AOS 8 you have the following options:
- Manage your controllers using the Mobility Master (MM)which is a separate HW or Virtual appliance, but you can’t use your 7000 or 7200 as your MM
- Configure your controller as a Mobility Controller Master (MCM) this needs to be 7030 controller or any 7200 controllers, you can’t terminate APs on the MCM
- Standalone

Re: Rel. 8.2: Convert Standalone to Master

Hey Victor,

 

thank you for your reply. Your answer confirmed my plan.

 

I hat one 7030 up to today, as Standalone with 40 APs, Runnung 6.5.

Today i'ved upgraded the 7030 without any problems to 8.2, but i failed at making it to a master.

 

My plan is to make the 7030 a Master and both new 72xx to Locals.

I think this should work.

 

As you've said:7030 can be MCM, but no local APs. Shure.

But my initial question was: how to migrate in 8.2 from Standalone to Master-Local?

 

Then i've downgraded all 3 Controllers to 6.5 and I have added  the 72xx as Local. Everything went perfect.

 

Then i've tried to migrate 6.5.4.4 to 8.2.0.2 with Migration Tool 3.1.6.

 

It failed at step "MCM Migration", at about 75% Progress.

 

The Message is

 [md] (config) #add-config-device 00:1A:1E:04:54:50 device-model  A7210 /md/tagwlan/ config-file /flash/config/importedConfig/10.100.231.7/default-local.cfg
ERROR: Command can be executed on MASTER only.

 

**bleep**. Nearly the same Problem.

Is it a bug?

Is it not possible to make the 7030 a master?

Do i have to factory reset the 7030?

 

Maybe i should better no goto tac.

 

Kind Regards

It looks like you don’t much of a config at the moment ? If this correct then you should to boot the controller from the AOS 8 partition and perform a write erase from CLI , do the same process for the 72xx controllers.

Then select the MCM option when you go through the initial console wizard on your 7030 , once you provision the controller make sure you add the local controllers .

Via the console wizard point your 7200 to the MCM

Re: Rel. 8.2: Convert Standalone to Master

Hey Vicor,

 

yeah, great answer. I have already though about a wipe of the old/current standalone controller.

 

Because there's a lot of config, several licenses, CPPM configuration, acls, certifiactes,  etc.. so any way to keep the config would be great. 

Otherwise: copy pasing the old "show runningconfig"  at CLI is an option i could live.

 

I will ask tac tomorrow and post the final solution here.

 

have a good night / day.
