APs/Devices display Configuration Error

APs/Devices display Configuration Error

I am trying to resolve an issue with APs/Devices not displaying configuration errors. When I try to import the configuration I receive the errors in the log below. Is this because I have managment mode to monitor and not to read/write?

It could be that the username and password credentials are missing or incorrect.

I added the appropriate credentials to the scan set within the tabbed area for Device Setup/Discover. Unfortunatley I still see the same results. I wonder if it has to do with my configuration being set to monitor only?

Have audits ever been successful?  Take a single controller, try to run an audit.  From the CLI, tail -f /var/log/ap/(ap_id)/*  or more specifically, the audit.log.  This will give you more details into the interaction with the controller during the audit period.

Re: APs/Devices display Configuration Error

It sounds like you've already "discovered" the device, and it's in the database now (but not getting the configuration read) - Take a look at the credentials on the device's "management" tab.

 

See if the credentials Airwave has for the deivce match what you have configured on the device.
