Today my two IAP-225 have firmware 22.214.171.124-126.96.36.199_44126. The firmware check page on the instant gui says there is version 188.8.131.52-184.108.40.206_44641 available. The IAPs however fail to download. Have tried a handfull times over the last 10-15 hours.
As I can see the URL in the log window I can also confirm this is a arubanetwork site error as I cannot download this file from my laptop either...

Resolving images.arubanetworks.com... 188.8.131.52
Connecting to images.arubanetworks.com|184.108.40.206|:80... ^C
So... The IAP can check against Aruba that there is a newer version, but cannot download. Check and download are probably two different sites.. I can also see that the site images.arubanetworks.com is dead when it comes to HTTP connections.
Can anyone confirm Aruba has network problems right now? Or am I missing something here...
Thanks in advance
I'm having the same issue trying to update an IAP-135.
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
Can you both confirm that you have Aruba IAPs or are the Dell / Alcatel branded?
Directly from Aruba
NO Dell !
And as said in the first post. The web site is down. So it does not matter what AP you have...
Hi Marcus, I'm working with an Aruba branded IAP-135. I get an error saying "failed to retrieve image".
Attached is the text of the log that pops up.
This is my error I logged this evening...
Not that I tried the same url from my Linux laptop with the same issue. Site down...
We just changed the Colo for the upgrade server on Sept. 6th and the IP address has changed from 220.127.116.11 to18.104.22.168.
Go to the CLI on your IAP and ping device.arubanetworks.com to see what you are resolving to. You may have the old IP cached.
Really... What is the point of resolving a name that the IAP wont even try to contact? The IAP tries to contact images.arubanetworks.com and not device.arubanetworks.com.
You can also see the result you asked for here here...
I have also tried to resolve "images.arubanetworks.com" from another DNS with the same result. How is my IAP suppose to guess a totalty new DNS name to download from that you noted above?
What do add to my answer a few minutes ago that...
Both images.arubanetworks.com and device.arubanetworks.com resolves the same, no matter if I look it up in my own DNS server or directly against arubanetworks.com authoritative DNS server.
And none resolves to the IP you mention Marcus. And as said... images.arubanetworks.com is the one that my IAP look up in DNS and NOT device.arubanetworks.com
So... Looking for your networking technician to fix the DNS against the correct IP of what the error now might be after your colo-change...
It would be nice if you could post here when the error is solved Marcus.
Sorry...........there are two discussion threads on the same topic. I am checking with engineering and will post as soon as I get an update (posted in the other thread).
Our IT department fixed the external DNS entry for images.arubanetworks.com. My IAP now resolves to the correct IP address for images. NOTE: I did have to reboot my IAP to clear out the old entry.
Now it works perfect !
My issue appears to be still happening. I get the error "retrieve image fail", even after several reboots of the AP. This appears to be happening at several of our sites, between IAP-105's and IAP-135's.
Did you reboot your cluster? Either it is retaining the old DNS entry or the DNS server you are resolving to has not been updated yet.
If you PING from the IAP, or a PC, to images.arubanetworks.com it should resolve to 22.214.171.124.
Probably your DNS cache still have the old value.
Do a dig or nslookup and see the cache time of the entry...
"rndc flush" in the DNS server if you have bind...
Thanks guys, I've tried several different DNS servers with nslookup as pos42 mentioned and it still seems to be resolving to 126.96.36.199
Also, it looks like many other servers are resolving to that as well --https://www.whatsmydns.net/#A/images.arubanetworks.com
Attached a screencap from my phone. Thanks for your help so far.
It can take time for the change to fan out to all DNS servers.
In the meantime there are several options for SW upgrades:
1. Use automatic updates. This is not working for some as the DNS server they are using has not received the updated IP address. The old address for images.arubanetworks.com is 188.8.131.52 and the new IP is184.108.40.206.
2. You can log into the TAC site and manually download IAP upgrades. This assumes you have an active support contract.
3. You can point your web browser to: http://220.127.116.11/fwfiles/ArubaInstant_Orion_18.104.22.168-22.214.171.124_44641 to download the file to your PC then manually upgrade.
4. You can go to the IAP maintenance page and specify the upgrade URL as: http://126.96.36.199/fwfiles/ArubaInstant_Orion_188.8.131.52-184.108.40.206_44641
NOTE: You need to specify the HW type as part of the URL above. In the example provided "Orion" refers to : -92/93, -104/105, -175, RAP-3.
Pegasus= -108/109, -114/115, -103
Fantastic, thank you very much Marcus. I didn't realize you could manually download the images without have a support contract.
Seems to be a problem again with fimware checks....
http://images.arubanetworks.com seems to answer ok on port 80.... I can also see in my firewall that the AP actually sent and receive an answer...
The dns name images.arubanetworks.com resolves to IP 220.127.116.11

but the IAP225 instant gui says "no response from server" when checking. I have 18.104.22.168-22.214.171.124_46936
I can see a point if the gui says there are no available updates. But the gui says "no response from server".
I have not done any HTTP analysis yet on the fw log dump. I posted this first.... :)
The 126.96.36.199 version has an expired certificate that would keep it from checking or downloading firmware. Please manually download 188.8.131.52 that I sent you to fix.
Having the same error on my 325 IAP sees the new DRT but fails to download error logging shows malformed URL.
