IAP 225 is not joining existing network

    I have an office with an IAP 225 already running and I'm adding another IAP 225.  I have assigned an IP address and upgraded both APs to 8.6 firmware.  From the new AP I can ping the Default Gateway, the current AP, and the Virtual Network IP.  It seems to boot up into standalone mode regardless of what I do.

    Looking for help in troubleshooting this.  I've attached the boot log and the running config from the console, but can grab other info if necessary.

    was that IAP-225 in standalone mode before you upgraded?
    Also is E1 port connected? if so can you disconnect it and reconnect the cable to E0.

    Any opinions expressed here are solely my own and not necessarily that of Hewlett Packard Enterprise or Aruba.

    Hi Joel.

    In the boot prompt check it AP is setup as standalone.

    Use printenv command to list the environmental variables and look for "standalone_mode" variable. From CLI you can use show ap-env to check some of the environmental variables.

    # printenv
    standalone_mode = 1

    If you find it, just set it to 0 with

    # setenv standalone_mode 0
    # saveenv

    If this won't help, boot AP and go to CLI and setup your country code with

    # virtual-controller-country <your country code>

    Save the settings and reboot.
