Re: Aruba 225 LED Status

I found the issue was that the POE Injector was not strong enough to fully power the AP. Replacing my Injectors fixed the issue.

Re: Aruba 225 LED Status

Ah, I figured it out.  I had to enable LLDP in order to negotiate and power greater than 15.4 watts.  As soon as I enabled LLDP on the switch, they powered all the way up.  CDP is supposed to do the same, but for some reason it didn't work.  I didn't look into that much.

Re: Aruba 225 LED Status

Any update?

 

Seems like we have some issues with extreme brand switches...

and by the way something about 2 eth ports connected using LACP. I wondering if some other protocols/profiles/nodefault config affects this behavior about APs.


I got just a few APs in flag "2s" (2 = Using IKE version 2, s = LACP striping) that i testing on the Configuration > AP Specific > Edit "APsWith2EthernetUplinkTest"
In "AP system profile" LMS IP (configured)

Re: Aruba 225 LED Status

Enabling LLDP on the switches worked and has been running these for 6 months.  I never went back to try to get CDP working instead, just because LLDP didn't really bother me.  I can't remember where I read that LLDP or CDP was required to go above 15.4 watts, but it was Aruba documentation.

Re: Aruba 225 LED Status

Might want to try this with Extreme Switches....

 

https://gtacknowledge.extremenetworks.com/articles/Solution/PoE-Aruba-AP-IAP-275-negotiation

 

Seen alot of flaky POE negotiation with the newer code(6.4.4.X) and AP32X/AP27X/AP22X gear....Only way I got the AP275s to come up fully was to goto this GA-code.

 

Just some input.

Re: Aruba 225 LED Status

Guru Guys,

Tell us how to tune up the switches side about all this details please, a good thing could be do it in 2 divisions:

1.-General concept (seems like al ready we had comment about it...), how to be sure (commands) about where is the problem (switch side or controler/ap aruba side)... few commands or console debug or packet captures... something to check keywords?.

2.-Paste example config of Aruba side and few switches side (Cisco, Extreme, Avaya, etc..).

btw: We use "best practices"... meanning: We check the release notes of new pre-releases and GA releases, we only just use GA in production as TAC recommend us and we work with workarounds on issues too...

Best regards.

Re: Aruba 225 LED Status

Hi, I am confused with the way 3 x AP225 LEDs are flashing.  My engineer assures me that they are not connected or showing on the WLC but their lights are as follows:

 

Green power light - solid

Data light - amber fast flashing

2.4 & 5 radio flashing green

 

According to the LED table, that means they are in AirMon mode but my support team cant see them from the WLC.

 

Any ideas?

Re: Aruba 225 LED Status

Do you have different controller?  They might be connected to that one...
