Why we need to disable extended ssid for operating the iap in mesh

Hi,

 

I have two IAPs of the same class ( eg. 105 iap ). I need to make it work in mesh. For that why I need to disable the extended SSID ?

Because the MESH utilize one of the essid broadcast for it's own backhaul communication. That's why :)

This is also done to prevent IAPs form mesh link accidentaly when Out of Box (example : when there is issues with enet port). The feature used to disabled by default in older code and was changed to enabled by default from 4.1 release.
