Move RAPS from controller on 6.5 to new controller deployment on 8.3

Hi. 

What is required to move a RAP from a controller on 6.5 to a controller on 8.3.0.1. I want to change the external NATed IP address from the 6.5 to the 8.3 controller.  Initial concern is what IP to map the NAT to on 8.3 ( VMM cluster with 7210 controller cluster), and will RAPs update firmware?

 

old version 6.5.3.1

new version 8.3.0.1

RAP 203RP

You may want to start here if you haven't already:

The initial concern would be the 7210s. You mentioned the controllers are clustered. Currently, cluster configurations with RAP do not support NAT. Because of how the nodelist is used for controller discovery with cluster configurations, the controllers would need to have public IPs in order for a cluster to work. If the controllers are not clustered, the NAT deployment similar to what was deployed in 6.5 would still work.

Dear 

 

We upgrade our 7010 from 6.5 to 8.2 in cpboot by the command upgrade 

Why when it reboot, we can not get into cpboot again, the Mad watchdos reboot one by one!

cloudq ... I recommend contacting Aruba TAC to open a case on your issue. I have not encountered the problem you describe when upgrading to 8.3, but have also not had to upgrade a controller via cpboot to do so. It may be that there's a fault with the controller that requires an RMA.
