Re: IAP-103 upgraded, wont allow GUI login repeats "turn off mobility" at console

Chris,

You should always check the product part number (SKU) that is on the white sticker (right in the image below). The black label is the same for AP, IAP, and all country variants and shows the model as it has gone through FCC (and others) testing. This is true for all AP's and IAP's: just check the part number on the attached white sticker: 

2017-01-06 17_34_07-IMG_20170106_173237.jpg - Windows Photo Viewer.png

As explained before, you cannot run Instant firmware on an AP-103 access point, you will need an IAP-103 version. If you try to flash Instant Firmware from the apboot, you will see the 'turning off mobility' messages and the AP will not come online, which has been mandated by FCC (and other) regulations.

Any idea what this part number would indicate?

Did you do a google search for that part number?  It is not familiar to me.

Even better:  You can ask the organization that you got it from, what it means...

Re: IAP-103 upgraded, wont allow GUI login repeats "turn off mobility" at console

Unfortunately, I got them from eBay as-is (I know, not a good idea, but we were in a pinch) Of course now I'm in an even bigger pinch because I can't get half of them to work :(

 

I did a google search but didn't come up with much. Just one result of an inventory list of some kind. Didn't help much.

The inventory list had a part number that has OAW-AP103 (Alcatel), which is NOT an IAP, but a Campus AP...

Well, it's not the answer I was hoping for, but it looks like I just have to face the music.

 

Will I be able to flash these back to the non-instant standard image?

Reset button?

I think I may have upgraded both partitions on one of the APs. Is that one shot?

You can try flashing it with an IAP Image from here:  http://support.arubanetworks.com/LifetimeWarrantySoftware/tabid/121/DMXModule/661/Default.aspx?EntryId=21997

 

No guarantees it will work, though.
