I have a cluster of 5 IAP - 105's and they are being monitored/managed by Airwave. What should I expect when I add an IAP 135 to the existing cluster.
This article implies to all versions of Airwave
Different IAP hardware requires different firmware version to operate. Below is the details of it.
If we have a cluster with IAP 105's (they run on ArubaInstant_Orion) and we add a new IAP - 135 (it runs ArubaInstant_Cassiopeia), then the VC (Virtual Controller) would not be able to upgrade the IAP - 135 to the code of the cluster.If Airwave is monitoring or managing the cluster and we have the below options enabled, the IAP will fetch the firmware file from Airwave and instantly upgrade to the code of the cluster.We must have the firmware file uploaded on the Airwave.Navigate to Device Setup -> Upload Firmware and files and add the firmware file.If the IAP are in monitor mode, we must allow firmware upgrade in Monitor only Mode.Navigate to AMP Setup -> general page and enable the below option.
Hi,I am running Airwave version 22.214.171.124and we have set it up to manage IAP's.But the firmware upgrade seems not be working as described above.Our setup:we are using IAP325 and IAP305; and dhcp-option43/60 for ZTP of the devices.When we setup the IAP325 as first device, it boots up, connects to Airwave andis working as expected, including firmware upgrade.But when starting an IAP305 as 2nd device in same subnet afterwards, that device isnot joining the Cluster due to firmware mismatch.But you do describe that in this case that IAP305 should turn to Airwave to downloadthe proper firmware.If we do shutdown the IAP325 and startup the IAP305 (as single AP in subnet) it worksthe same as before with the IAP325 as first device.Afterwards (both IAP running same firwmare version) forming a cluster is no longer anissue and any other IAP305 will work without issues as well.What am I doing wrong here ?AMP-setup is exactly as you describe above.
