Re: AP-318 gets no VAP

Hi Kevin,


thank you, this seems to be the issue.

I am trying to fix it, but for some reasons the APs do not recognize my changes to the Switch-config.

I activated poe-lldp-detect, set it to high and deliverance by class, plus setting the value to 30.

I think I found the reason, PoE+ is only available on the first six ports on 2540-24 PoE+ Switches and the APs are on different Ports.

I'll have to fix this on Monday. I'll write an Update.

Re: AP-318 gets no VAP

Hi Kevin,


I changed the APs to the first Switchports and configured them accordingly. The do deliver the required power, but the AP shows still AF Power.

I reprovisioned the AP, to no effect.

I disabled poe-lldp-detect, also no effect.

The Switch is an Aruba 2540 - 24 PoE+, so there shouldn't be any issues, but they are.

My customer is getting very unhappy, first we had wo wait more than two months for the APs to arrive and now they won't take up their radios ...

Re: AP-318 gets no VAP

Hello @ll,


I found the solution.

The AP-318 always reported 0.0W from LLDP!

No matter what I did, I couldn't turn it off, even when the Switch provided enough power, the Radios didn't turn on because 0.0W from LLDP.

I did some research and found this: no lldp config <port#> dot3TlvEnable poeplus_config

Used it and now the APs start their Radios!


Thank you @ll for your support!
