Preload software on APs

  • 1.  Preload software on APs

    Posted Apr 16, 2020 10:59 AM


    we did an upgrade today on AOS8 for the mobility master and our lab controllers. we have 50 APs in a lab setting (our IT office) and 2 controllers in a cluster. yesterday to test preload on the APs we downloaded the code onto the controllers and preloaded the Aps with the new code. it all worked. however, when i started the live upgrade today most of the Aps were preloaded again with 7 out of the 50 reporting "no preload required". has anyone else run into this issue?

    we are moving along with the upgrade and will be doing a live upgrade at out large site with 1300 Aps and would like to use the preload prior to the live upgrade to speed up the process. 


    thank you

    AP Preload is not supported in combination with cluster upgrade, nor needed as mentioned in the other reply.
