    Please forgive me if this scenario has already brought up.

    We have a large cluster of IAP-205 access points that we plan to do a 1-to-1 swap out with with new AP-635 APs.  
    The current AP-205s are running firmware 6.5.4 and the new APs are likely running 8.x.x.   Will the AP-635 downgrade to version 6.5.4 version as it joins the cluster.  I'm not sure if the AP-635 supports 6.5.4.x 

    Just trying to figure out the easiest and painless process with minimal network switch configuration for this migration.

    No the AP-635s will not downgrade. The min firmware that  they support is InstantOS

    i suggest connect one fo the AP-635s to a different subnet and  replicate the configuration from your APs and then test it.

    once you are happy with yhe test outcome then replace IAP-205s with it.

    If my post was useful accept solution and/or give kudos.
