    Posted Sep 27, 2021 11:29 AM
    Hi community,

    I am trying to add some AP305 to my airwave (version 8.2.12.0) but it's been unsuccessful so far.
    I did a reset factory on the AP but am not able to http the AP, and do not see any default SSID (SetMeUp-something).

    I meet the requirement for the AP to join the airewave (dns domain name in the DHCP server, and dns entry for aruba-master).
    Packet capture show that AP try to reach the airwave controller on port UDP-2111 which sounds good, but no reply from the controller.

    Further research led me to the PAPI event log, and i got the following messages :

    Anyone seen something like this ?

    Thank you for your support.

    If you really have an AP305, it will require a controller to operate. Do you have a controller? If the controller is added to Airwave, it should automatically add the AP to Airwave as soon as the AP is connected to the controller. Airwave is different than a controller.

    Only Instant AP (IAP-305-RW/IAP-305-US) will start broadcasting the SetMeUp SSID after a factory reset.

    Otherwise, please be more specific in what components you have and what version is running.

    Hi,

    Thank you for pointing to the right direction.
    I was not aware that there were AP-305 and not IAP305, i checked the SKU with the person on site.

    As we no longer have a controller (only Airwave), i guess we will order some IAPs fos this deployment.

    Thank you very much for your help.

    Best regards
    Florian
