Did you configure an SSID to broadcast?

InstantAP 2XX (802.11ac) units are not supporting mesh.

from the Release notes:

How to do mesh with other instant models:

in instantAP 1XX mesh is very simple,just add your IAP first by wire to your VC group (make sure extanded ssid is disabled) after u seeing the IAP in your middle table of AP , u may disconnect it from LAN and leave it only with AC adapter.

Give it a couple of sec/min - and suddenly you will notice the magic (in Instant versions)

The release noted of 6.4.3.1-4.2, it should support Mesh.

 

Mesh Support on 802.11ac Access Points
Starting from Instant 6.4.3.1-4.2 release, the 802.11ac Access Points such as IAP-22x, IAP-27x, IAP-21x, and IAP-20x support Mesh configuration. For more information on Mesh IAP configuration, see the Aruba Instant 6.4.3.x-4.2 User Guide.

Yes, I did follow those steps, but the mesh point AP 2.4GHz LED is still in Yellow.

I waited around 10mins, then it works finally and 2.4 LED turn Green, Many Thanks!

The Yellow LED issue sometimes come up because of regulatory domains and so on.
