Unable to Convert IAP-315 to Campus AP

We just purchased a few IAP-135's and I need to convert them to campus AP's.  We currently have a 7210 controller running 6.5.4.2.  When I put in the controller's IP address in the AP to do the conversion I get a new tab saying  "Connecting to 10.1.253.11 (My controller IP) failed:  Connection refused.

 

Any thoughts\suggestions?

 

Thanks,

 

Brandon

Are you using 135 or 315 , do you have cpsec enabled ?

Do you have enough licenses ?

Can you ping the controller from the VLAN the AP is on ?

Hi Victor,

 

Sorry, yes it is an IAP-315 "Typo".  I can ping the controllers IP from that VLAN.  This is our first IAP conversion, all of our other AP's are non IAP's.  Also, we have 10 extra licenses. 

 

Thanks,

Do you have cpsec enabled ?

If you go to the controller CLI you should be able to run the following command “ show log system all | include and see what could be causing this issue

I am not seeing anyting on the controller that would indicate the ap even trying to hit the controller.

You should confirm if cpsec (control plane) is enabled

I didn't realize that the code needed to match exactly on the Instant AP as well as the contoller.  As soon as I updated the firmware on the IAP and the converted it everything worked as expected.
