  • 1.  Unprovisioned Access Points not detected

    Posted Dec 11, 2012 10:44 PM

    hi all, i am doing config in my new aruba controller 650 an acess points ap-135. there is a problem that Unprovisioned Access Points is not detected in my controller. i have already configured dhcp server in my controller and the ap is get dynamic ip from controller. i can ping the controller from acces points. i have read the forum and CP Sec disabled.

     

    this is the ping  :

    PING 10.200.50.253 (10.200.50.253): 56 data bytes

    this is controller ip :

    Switch IP Address: 172.16.0.254

    Switch IP is configured to be Vlan Interface: 1

    Switch IPv6 address is not configured.

     

    this is ap database :

    Yes is detected...

    Look check that its not in access denied on the monitoring tab on the summery it should appear in read you click on it and it will say access denied...

    Now at this poing you need to give it permission.

     

    If you want to do it the easy way you can go to the configuration tab, and go to the  control security plane

    Check autocert provisioning... and then click ok

     

    When you done then you revert that change... thats for security reasons... but well you can do it like that faster...

    Oh didnt read you have CP off...

    IF you dont see it on the controller try consoling the AP to see if he find the Aruba master with the correct ip address

     

    I see you got the AP on another network

    Did you put the aruba-master record on the DNS pinting to 172.16.0.254

     

    So when the AP comes up he knows thats the ip of the master?

    And of course ont he DHCP server did you configured the DNS server i mean the internal DNS server which tells the AP which will be the aruba master?

    how to find the Aruba master with the correct ip address in ap console ?

     

    I see you got the AP on another network

    Did you put the aruba-master record on the DNS pinting to 172.16.0.254

     

    I still using default ip address for the controller.

     

    i have already set vlan 800 with ip address 10.200.50.253 with dhcp server and the ap get an ip 10.200.50.252

     

    i have already set gi1/5 access with vlan 800 and connect my ap to that.

     

    sorry if i ask a basic question :)

     

    this is ap log :

    okay let see

    you got set this way up

     

    you got the Controller set on 172.16.0.254


    You also did an interface vlan with the ip 10.200.50.253

     

     

    Okay go the webgui go to configuration go to controller and on the controller ip details you will see this address on it

    172.16.0.254 which should be on vlan 1

    On the dropdown choose vlan800 10.200.50.253 it should appear

     

    click apply

    save the configuration

     

    And you will need to reboot the controller...

     

    Now the thing is that you should always point the AP  to the master IP address and now the master ip address is 172.16.0.254

     

    For him aruba-master = 172.16.0.254 not 10.200.50.253

    With the change i just told you the aruba-master will be  10.200.50.253 and it should find it correctly after you reboot

     

    Now if you trunking that vlan 800 to your internal network then you shoud put the default gatway of that network pointing to the switch that is routing that vlan...

     

    But for now just do the change i just told you and the AP should come up...

     

    Before rebooting you can put another port on vlan 800 if you would like and you can plug your laptop or computer there and well save the config

    Im guessing you are doing this offline you your pc and the controller and the AP just to test though....

     

    But when you connect it ot the real Network you will have your APs on another vlan

     

    Let say

     

    You got your controller with vlan 800 with the ip you said 10.200.50.253

    You got that vlan trunked to your switch core and then trunked that vlan 800 back and on the switch core an ip interface vlan which will be the default gateway of that Wireless controller... let say you will have an ip interface vlan with the ip 10.200.50.1 on the SwitchCORE

    And your default gateway will be the CORE switch which is routing that vlan(for now thecontroller should be just a layer 2 at this momment which is recommended.

     

    Now just with that you should have aministration on the network of the Wireless contorller.

     

    Now the APs might not be on that vlan... they will be in X vlan...

    So now you got the dilema that you need your APS can find the controller.

    It can be done in many ways....

    1-By statically configuring it

    2-by DNS

    3-by DHCP

    4-with ADP protocol(which will find it if the AP is on the same vlan of the Wireless controller)

     

    I llike the DNS one

    On the DNS server you put a new record aruba-master which willl be 10.200.50.253

     

    Now if you connect the AP on any vlan that has a DHCP server that distribute the DNS server ip on that dhcp scope  he willl get the IP in X vlan and also but as he will resolve with the DNS server that the master is 10.200.50.253 he willl find the controller and you should see it ont he screen.

     

    Hope this help you

    @ Im guessing you are doing this offline you your pc and the controller and the AP just to test though....

     

    you are right :)

     

    I am still looking for how to configure this stuff 

     

    Can you explain in details this :

     

    1-By statically configuring it >> might be this is the easy way but i have to do it on ap's console ?

    2-by DNS

    3-by DHCP

    4-with ADP protocol(which will find it if the AP is on the same vlan of the Wireless controller)

    wait a second! is that an instant AP???

     

    When you connect it do you see on the wireless a instant SSID?

    Posted Dec 12, 2012 12:23 AM

    Look if its an instant AP and you DO NOT want to use it as instant AP and it will be a managed AP by the wireless controller you need to convert it to managed AP...

    Remenber this is if you dont want to use it as Instant AP.

     

    Let say you dont want it to use it as INSTANT AP and you would like to use it as a AP managed by the wireless controller which i see is what you want

    You connect to the SSID instant,

    user

    admin

    pass

    admin


    Go to maintanience tab i think its the name

    And you should see a tab in there to convert it... he will ask you whats the IP of the controller you put in there.. and he will convert...

    See if the access point is broadcasting the "Instant" wireless network.  If it is connect to it using your laptop and see if you get an ip address....

     

    If you get an ip address with your laptop, open a browser and try to go to http://instant.arubanetworks.com.  If a page comes up for the Instant virtual controller, login with "admin" and "admin".  If you get in go to Maintenence> Convert and Convert to Campus AP and point it to the ip address of your controller to convert it.

    Is that the only AP with the problem?  What is the controller's OS version?

     

    The controller should deliver the OS to the AP.

    Okay.

     

    On the console of that AP, press enter to interrupt the boot until you get to the "apboot>" prompt.

     

    type "clear os" and reboot.

     

    It should come up as an instant AP again.  Connect to the "instant" SSID and try to convert once more...

    Don't worry about that message.  Type "dhcp" at the apboot> prompt to see if it gets an ip address.  I don't see that happening...

     

    I also do not see the link coming up on eth0...

    That looks right...

     

    On the controller, type "show log system 50" and then type "show ap database"

    The message "Dec 24 09:50:58 :311010: <WARN> |AP d8:c7:c8:cc:36:c2@10.200.50.251 sapd| AP could not b
    oot from flash -- bad checksum" just says why it rebooted.  The fact that the message is there means that it recovered and it contacted the controller.  It should show up in "show ap database"

     

    at the "apboot>" prompt, type "purge" then "save", then "boot"

    how i can change the boot method from tftp boot to flash. i still looking for the image of the ap but cant find it. can i copy the image ap from the other one? 

     

    so it will be the same with other ap that i have configured

    When the AP boots with the message:

    Calibrating delay loop... 1597.44 BogoMIPS (lpj=1597440)

     

     

    It already has an image....  The next thing you need to see is if it is finding the controller.

     

    At the beginning of this thread you sent this output:

     

    #show controller-ip

    Switch IP Address: 172.16.0.254

    Switch IP is configured to be Vlan Interface: 1

    Switch IPv6 address is not configured.

     

    That means if the AP contacts the controller on ANY ip address, it will redirect the AP to 172.16.0.254.  That happens because the controller by default assigns its switch IP to the LOWEST vlan on the box.  You can change this by:

     

     

     

    config t

    controller-ip vlan <vlan#>
