    Good morning!

    We have a 305 Instance cluster with 10 305 access points. We are adding 4 more access points, but 305s are end of sale so we are buying 505 instead. I have 2 questions:
    1- Can 505 and 305 access point co-exist in the same cluster (305 Instance) or would we experience any problems? Assuming that we are keeping them in separate floors.
    2- If yes, Do we need to switch the instance controller so that it's one of the 505 (ie a 505 cluster) instead of the 305 or can we just keep the 305 controller and install the 4 new 505 APs?

    Thank You so much for your help!

    yes you can have them both in one cluster as long as the firmware versions are the same.
    the recommended CR version is 8.6.0.9
