Re: I have an Aruba 7210 with AP-275's and AP-225's.

Hello again.

 

         We have installed our AP 225's and AP 275's.  The WLAN has been up for a while but we have yet to get more than 1 AP 275 working.  The symptoms we are having are that the 275"s boot up and find the master but they don't broadcast no matter how many times we provision them.  I have consoled into the AP and watched it boot and it gets to the "Welcomne to the AP275" and "watchdog process finished nanny will restart."  Then Nothing.  Some 275's show blinking Green light and some show solid red.  Only 1 is letting clients connect and it has no light.  These are very confusing sysmptoms and I am having a hard time nailing down the culprit.  I am going to be very discriptive, see below

 

We have a 1gigabit uplink to a Cisco 2960 in a parking deck with 6 AP275's patched to it.  I also have an AP 275 coming from the MDF.  We ended up buying 30W POE injectors so we can rule out POE power from the switch being an issue.  The only AP275 that clients can connect to is in the parking deck.  It is plugged int o port 1 on the cisco switch.  All of the ports on the 2960 have been duplicated to match the 1 port that AP275's work on.  Any AP275 I put  on port 1 of the 2960 works.  Why don't the others?  The AP275 in the MDF is off of a Cisco 3750X.  There are 35 APs connected to a stack of 9 3750X's without any issue.  275's from MDF don't broadcast either. 

 

i have attached what console shows.

Think you captured the "insuffiecient POE Voltage" issue :)

 

Now to solve it...

You need to enable LLDP on the switches.

sorry i have not read all the comment

 

have you ugrade your controller to 6.4 as suggested before,  are you always recieving the message "Shutting down eth1 due to insufficient POE voltage",

is the security plan disable or not.

Re: I have an Aruba 7210 with AP-275's and AP-225's.

I don't know if the issue was found in your case but I'm currently deploying AP-275 in a big manufacture to replace old Cisco Autonomus AP-1231. Our switch stack all around is standardized with Cisco 3750X 48ports. I just realized that on some stack the AP-275 once provisionned will appear as Inactive and in some other stack they will show as Active without the I flag. It's running on M3 with AOS 6.4.2.9. I started to dig into this issue during this week and yesterday I found that there is common denominator to those with the I flag. There are connected on stack running Cisco IOS 15.0(1)SE2 . The other AP-275 that work fine are on stack running Cisco IOS 15.0(2)SE2. All the stack have LLDP enabled. So it must be a bug with Cisco IOS version. 

 

Anyway I will continue to dig into this next week. If someone have other information related please share!
