    Hello team,
    I want to know if Aruba 315 and 515 will join the cluster.
    And what are the range of firmware which will join the same cluster?

    These can exist in a cluster as long as the IAP-315 are running the minimum required firmware of the AP-515. So, this will be 8.4.x with some restrictions or 8.6 for unrestricted operation.

    Hello Craig ,
    I have created a different cluster with 315 iap but when I try to open 515 cluster ,I am redirected to 315 cluster but in 315 cluster I can't see 515 access points

    Are they both running the same firmware version?

    I have updated the firmware version of 305 now all the APs including 505 and 305 are working in same cluster .
    I was trying to create two cluster in same network but I was not able to login .

    A 'cluster' of IAPs is determined by the broadcast domain they sit in. So, any IAPs in a single broadcast domain will create a single cluster. If you want seperate clusters then create additional broadcast domains.

    Hi
    I can find the following in the Aruba Instant Manual:

    Each Instant AP model has a minimum required software version. When a new Instant AP is added into an
    existing cluster, it can join the cluster only if the existing cluster is running at least the minimum required
    version of that Instant AP. If the existing cluster is running a version prior to the minimum required version of
    the new Instant AP, the new Instant AP will not come up and may reboot with the reason Image sync fail. To
    recover from this condition, upgrade the existing cluster to at least the minimum required version of the new
    Instant AP first, and add the new Instant AP. For more information about supported Instant AP platforms,
    refer to the Aruba Instant Release Notes.

    So the cluster has to be updated to 8.4.0.0 in order for the new AP to be able to join. The problem for you here is that your older IAP 135 cannot be updated to 8.4.0.0. I don't see this model in the list of supported platforms for 8.4.0.0

    Maybe the only solution is to put all the IAP515 on a different subnet and manage them as a separate cluster.
