AP not Joining WLC 2106

Greetings all, 

 

I have WLC 2106 8x ports with POE (2x ports only) and AP1142, both are US domain, and the AP is not joining although I can see on the loges (both nodes) hence, there is communication between them and from the AP I see the following logs:

NOTE: WLC IP 192.168.1.240 and AP .241 (LWAPP ) then I set static IP address for CAPWAP .241 all IP's on /24.

Re: AP not Joining WLC 2106

Thanks for your help from the show commands, I can see its time related issue, the WLC running ver 7.0 (its old WLC and cant be upgraded to 8.x), the other issue the AP running ver 15 (Latest), so I had two issues software compatibility and the time, I set the WLC to 2018 and the ap to 2018 (by factory reset)  then the ap joined the wlc and downgraded the software to v12.

 

Thanks again.

Manaf
