Re: AP-215s can't find controller via ADP after upgrade to 6.5.4.2

Yes.  My APs are on the same VLAN as the controller and I even went one step further by plugging them directly into the controller.  They still weren't able to connect to it...

My initial discovery method was ALD... However, I thought I manually configured them to statically point to the controller IP... I set the LMS configuration paramenter to the IP of the controller, but I guess that wasn't suffiicient...

Is there anything blocking  broadcast multicast on your switches or on the wired interface of your controller?  Again, if you enabled any of those, your access points will silently fail when they reboot.  Also, what is the output of "show adp counters"?

Re: AP-215s can't find controller via ADP after upgrade to 6.5.4.2

I don't believe so... I have left those settings to the default value... 

 

Below is the output of the command you asked me to run...

(Master) #show adp counters

 

ADP Counters

So, the LMS-IP is only good if the AP can find the controller after a reboot.  The AP is then redirected to the LMS-IP AFTER it finds the controller.  The LMS-IP does not survive a reboot in most circumstances.

Type "show switch ip".  Is it on the same VLAN as the access points?

The controller is on the same VLAN as the APs.

 

Below is the output of the command...

(Master) #show switch ip

 

Switch IP Address: 192.168.25.2

 

Switch IP is configured to be Vlan Interface: 1

 

Switch IPv6 address is not configured.

Re: AP-215s can't find controller via ADP after upgrade to 6.5.4.2

According to your console output, your access points are configured on a different VLAN:

 

Bonding mode set to
10.10.1.165 255.255.240.0 10.10.1.1
Running ADP...cat: /tmp/master: No such file or directory
Done. Master is

 

10.10.1.165 is the access point's ip address.  If it cannot route to 192.168.25.2 through 10.10.1.1, it will NOT find the controller.  If you are using ADP, the controller will respond with it's controller- ip address and send your access points to that.  You can change the controller ip address to something on the 10.10.1.x subnet with via a console cable (might require a reboot) and see if your access points find the controller.

 

EDIT:

 

You would do it like this:

 

(Aruba7660-US) #configure t
Enter Configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z

(Aruba7660-US) (config) #controller-ip <new ip address of controller>

Re: AP-215s can't find controller via ADP after upgrade to 6.5.4.2

Hi Colin,

I believe you're looking at the wrong case... my network doesn't have any 10.x.x.x IPs in it...

Niten,

 

You need to get a console cable like the person who opened this thread to understand what is going on.  You can type "show log system 50" to also see if there is a clue about why the access points are not connecting.
