AP not broadcasting SSID

I have an 225 series AP, controller based. It sits in an AP group along side many happy AP's, however this one fails to broadcast a specific SSID. Other than that it seems to be working fine. 


Can't figure why the AP group settings aren't taking affect. Any thoughts?


I don't believe there's any config required, beyond simply assigning the AP group.

Re: AP not broadcasting SSID

Can you validate that the SSID/Virtual AP profiles are enabled ?
Do you have a valid VLAN assigned that existing in the controller the AP is attached to?
Thank you

Re: AP not broadcasting SSID

How have you validated that the AP is not broadcasting the SSID from the AP Group profile?

Re: AP not broadcasting SSID

Only validated in AirWave using the 'Active BSSID' info from the device info.

I had a spare AP handy, dropped it into the same AP group and it's behaving properly. I hate not finding root cause but we're going with replacement as a solution for now.
