LAP won't join WLC - Lwapp discovery request rejected

We are setting up a WLC 7500 for the first time and are having a hard time trying to connect an LAP to the WLC. We have 1042 Access Points.

Reason for last unsucessful attempt: to many concurrent ap image downloads

Last Error Occurred: Lwapp discovery request rejected

Last Error Occurred Reason: Too many concurrent AP image downloads

We only have 1 AP plugged in so far and it does recieve an IP address from DHCP.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Matt

Thanks for the reply!

DHCP pool is configured with option 43 to be have 10.10.60.1 our dhcp is 10.10.50.x but all clients on the 50 can ping the .60 range we have that setup here. The AP get's an IP of 10.10.50.183 when trying to join.

Switches are configured as access ports on the same vlan as the management vlan on the WLC

Console logs are as follows:

i can ping 10.10.60.1 from anywhere, and i can ping 10.10.50.x addresses from the WLC

Any thoughts...

Much appreicated.

i have set dhcp option 43 to our controller ip address 10.10.60.1

i have also set capwap and lwapp in dns to the 10.10.60.1 address... which is the management address of the controller

thanks

Check the time settings on the controller. The controller can refuse settings if the time is too far apart.

Is your dns pointer entry cisco-capwap-controller.yourcompany.com or cisco-lwapp-controller.your.company.com?

Make sure you have the required vlans on the trunk port to the controller. I see you can ping the .60 range, but can the clients ping the controller management address?

Re: LAP won't join WLC - Lwapp discovery request rejected

Matt,

Do these APs use self-signed certs (SSCs) or manufacturer installed certs (MICs)?

Debug pm pki enable on the controller to see if you need to add an SSC entry. And make sure the WLC is configured to accept both MICs and SSCs under Security/AP Policies.

Config auth-list add ssc

Re: LAP won't join WLC - Lwapp discovery request rejected

We are setting up a WLC 7500 for the first time and are having a hard time trying to connect an LAP to the WLC. We have 1042 Access Points.

I'm reading the data sheet for the 1040 and I don't see anywhere about "mesh" being mentioned.  I guess it's not supported.

But when you go to the 7500 data sheet, it's mentioned.

Re: LAP won't join WLC - Lwapp discovery request rejected

1040s support mesh ... granted i just got back from the bar and ive been drinking heavily ..

Re: LAP won't join WLC - Lwapp discovery request rejected

SSC and MIC certs have been added

one thing i do notice is on the ap in console mode after it boots up and get's it's ip, after about 50 seconds it says can't find wlc with it's ip renewing ip, I have tried the lwapp command to static enter the wlc ip, with no go still... is there something maybe where it doesn't have enough time to scan for it since it's a 255.255.0.0 subnet??

thanks

Re: LAP won't join WLC - Lwapp discovery request rejected

Try with network 255.255.255.0 in that way u will eliminate one problem, if exists.
