IAP 205 Mesh not working


I can’t get Mesh to configure using two IAP 205’s running ArubaOS (MODEL: 205), Version


I’ve followed all the steps in all the articles I could find but even after disabling extended SSID, saving, and rebooting, I get “No mesh supported in current mode” running command “sh ap mesh link”.


When I check the AP’s using command “sh aps” I can see the EXT SSID shows enabled even when the GUI shoes disabled and the CLI does not show the extended SSID command.


I did notice that each SSID I’ve created shows an “essid “SSID HERE”” statement which is what I think is the issue.


So my question is what do I do to remove or replace the essid statement? I’ve tried no essid ssid but it fails. OR what do I need to do to get meshing to work?????

Please get the new code for your AP205 here: and try...
