Aruba IAP Cluster reboots randomly

  • 1.  Aruba IAP Cluster reboots randomly

    Posted Jul 09, 2019 10:55 AM

    Good morning to all of you airheads.

     

    One customer is having issues with a Cluster of Aruba IAPs 305. They reboot randomly. Here's an example of the debugging we did:

    What we already did:

    1) Updated OS version to 8.3.0.6

    2) Selected another preferred master

    3) Checked power budget of switch (it's sufficient)

    4) Default gateway is a Cisco MPLS router.

     

     

    Thanks in advance and sorry for the long post!

    It looks like the instant cluster is losing connection to its default gateway which causes the Instant cluster to reboot.

    Is your network connectivity between IAP's and default gateway stable?

    Hello ariyap.

     

    Yesterday our client changed the default gateway to another device in the network. That way we will be able to disregard this as an issue.

    If the cluster doesn't reboot in the next week, I will let you and the community know.

    If they keep rebooting, could there be another issue?

    Thanks for your fast response.

    There could be numerous issues both hardware and software. Do you have a syslog server set up to capture any output prior to the AP rebooting?

    Hi Craig.

    We have a syslog server, yes. 

    Attached you will find log info.

    Regards.

    Seems to be the same issue as before, the IAP reboots due to gateway unreachable.

    This is the correct behaviour of an Instant Cluster, if the default gateway is unreachable from the configured uplink, it will try the other uplinks if configured, if not it will reboot.

    Posted Jul 24, 2019 10:03 AM

    Good morning everyone. First of all thanks for your responses, I wasn't in the office and couldn't answer before.

     

    We changed default gateway from 192.168.220.1 to another L3 device (192.168.220.2) and they rebooted again. Same error "gateway unreachable".  

    We also removed device 192.168.220.1 and changed it for another router on Friday but the problem persist. The syslog level is on Debug, this means I can't get more detailed information about this reason "gateway unreachable". We are monitoring gateways (192.168.220.1 and 220.2) through other devices and they never fail to respond, so, it would seem an IAP issue but we can't confirm this yet.

    Is it possible to disable this reboot behaviour? 

     

    Thanks in advance.

    Best regards.

    Changed APs and it worked ok so the problem was associated with these devices.

    Thanks
