    We have AirWave managing our 205 APs and they are working fine. Now we are adding additional 505 access points. Can the 505s be added to the virtual controller of the 205? I've tried to let the 505s be managed by the 205 controller but its not working. The 205s are running firmware 6.5 and the 505 which is more current is running 8.7.x.x. I don't know if because they are running different versions, the 205s virtual controller cannot manage the 505s. 

    Our network was setup by someone and is not longer with us. The AirWave shared key is hashed and I don't know what the key is. How do I recover that. Can I just changed the shared key on the virtual controller and have no issues?

    the IAP-205s can go up to 6.5.x firmware and AP-505s need a min firmware version of 8.6.x
    so you can not have a instant cluster of IAP-205s and AP-505s
