Instant RAP-3WN convert to RAP

Hi all -

 

I have a RAP-3WN that I wanted to convert to a RAP on my network - but looks like I need a different software version for the controller - I'm currently running 6.1.3.1. I see that 6.2.0.1 is under early release and am still reading the release notes on it  - but wanted to see if that is my only choice for getting this up and running - and if so - when will it go into full release? (I'm hesitant because my network span 11 offices world wide - I would hate to take them all down and break them just to get this one RAP up and running)

 

Controller: 3200

software: 6.1.3.1

APs: 105's, rap-5WNs, rap-2WNs and one rap-3wn

 

Please let me know if you have any questions

You will have to call TAC to obtain 6.1.4.1 or upgrade to 6.2.x inorder for the controller to support the RAP3.

Between the 6.1.4.1 "Technology Release" and the 6.2 "Early Deployment" I would go with 6.2.   The 6.1.4.1 version was based off an earlier build of 6.1.  There have been a number of stability related issues addressed in 6.2 that were not addressed in the 6.1.4.1 version as this specific version was short lived.

 

6.2 should become GA in February.
