Has the customer already set up other RAPs successfully?

Re: Provisioning an AP-203R

This video may help. It shows how to convert if you can have the AP in Instant mode, as well in case you have it connected to a controller already.


Video is for the 6.x version of the controller, but steps should be similar with 8.x.

If you have urgent issues, please contact your Aruba partner or Aruba TAC (click for contact details).

Thanks for reply Herman,
We have managed to get the RAP on the v8 controller being managed by a MM.
We have provisioned an SSID to the RAP and the controller says it is being broadcast.
However the customer says they can't see the SSID !!
Have you seen this before?
