Best approach to add and replace newer IAP devices

Hello

I currently have a mix of IAP-103, IAP-105 and IAP-205.

The firmware is now 6.4.4.8-4.2.4.11_64223.

An IAP-105 is set as master.

I have bought new IAP-207 devices, but the firmware is 6.5.4.3

I want to gradually replace the old IAP-105 devices, as they cannot get the most recent firmware anymore.

 

What is the best approach to do this?

Can I change the master to an IAP-205 first without issues?

I guess I can't add the new IAP-207 devices, because the firmware is newer?

Or is it better to remove all the IAP-105 devices, then update everything until all devices are on firmware 6.5.4.3 and the add the IAP-207 devices?

 

Thanks for the advice.

Hi,

 

Minimum firmware version of the IAP207 is 4.3.1.0 as per the datasheet : https://www.arubanetworks.com/assets/ds/DS_AP207Series.pdf

 

You would need to upgrade your cluster to at least 4.3.1.0 before your IAP207 would be compatible.


Cheers
James

Re: Best approach to add and replace newer IAP devices

The new AP's (IAP-207) have firmware 5.3.2.1 . If I update the other AP's to 4.3.1, I can just add the IAP-207 devices? I don't need to downgrade them?

 

Can I change the master of an IAP-105 to an IAP-205 first without issues?

Re: Best approach to add and replace newer IAP devices

I have set an 205 IAP as master, rebooted everything. Then I removed the old IAP-105 devices and updated the firmware. After I added the IAP-207 devices.
