IAP-103-rw upgrade potential?

    Posted Jan 27, 2023 09:53 AM
    I've been tasked to upgrade some network equipment for a school.
    They are using about a dozen Aruba IAP-103-RW
    Firmware shows it is running
    Since this is a very old firmware and hasn't been maintained by anyone for years, and i have no prior experience with aruba products....

    could anyone please inform me of things like:
     - what the latest firmware is that they support?
     - are there limitation/ problems when upgrading to 6.x or 8.x (should the product support this)
     - is it possible to downgrade, should any issues arise?
    Thank you for your assistance in this matter.
    Kind regards

    When running in Instant mode: firmware on ASP.
    With controller up to version 8.6.

    I would not expect issues when you upgrade to; but read the manual/release notes and you can downgrade by uploading (the) old firmware.
