AP-375 doesn't join Wireless Manager

Good afternoon all,

I'm trapped into an issue which I'm unable to sort it out.

Our environment has a redundant 7205 Wireless Manager running

I have a bunch of AP-304 and AP-305 that works fine. I had to add additional AP to our env, in particular AP-375 outdoor. I would expect that AP would join WM automatically as other AP has done but it wasn't.

Then I connect to the serial console and forced AP conversion via cmdline specifying CAP mode and WM VRRP ip address.

Then AP download the new firmware and reboots. Once it boots then it stops at:

On WM no AP appears to be provisioned. After 60-70 secs AP reboots to factory image.


Does anybody has some suggestions?


Thank you

The AP-37x series require AOS as a minimum.




If you're running, upgrading to or later would get the 375s to join the mobility controller.
