WLC 3504 Unable to see AP 1560

First time setting up a network with WLC.

 

WLC is configured and can both web browse and SSH into it. It currently has 1 SSID configured.  I hardwire one of the APs into port 3 (PoE port) and it doesn't receive the SSID configuration.

WLC Firmware is 8.5.140.0

Re: WLC 3504 Unable to see AP 1560

Got it to join.

 

Was missing:

  • AP IP address, since network doesn't have DHCP
  • capwap ap primary-base WLC-1 X.X.X.X

Re: WLC 3504 Unable to see AP 1560

can you share a:

show AP summary to confirm the AP has registered to the WLC.

Also a show WLAN summary

The SSID you have configured what WLAN number is it? if its over 16 you need to add the AP to an AP group with that WLAN on it.

Re: WLC 3504 Unable to see AP 1560

looks like the AP hasn't joined the WLC

Can you share the console output of when the AP attempts to join the WLC.

 

Also try adding the AP ethernet mac address to the WLC:

Security > AP Policies

Add as MIC

 

Then run these debug commands - and reboot the AP and share the output of the debug and the console logs from the AP:

 

(Cisco Controller) >debug capwap events enable
(Cisco Controller) >debug capwap errors enable

Re: WLC 3504 Unable to see AP 1560

Already had the MAC added to AP Policy registered as MIC.

Ran the debug commands you mentioned, power cycled (I'm VPN'd into work, so I disabled PoE on the port the AP is on. Assuming that worked), and didn't see anything show up on the shell window. Is there a command to see the logs? or should the pop up as they come?

VIP Rising star

Re: WLC 3504 Unable to see AP 1560

really need to see the AP console logs as well.

Is the AP on the same subnet as the WLC.

What version of code is the WLC running?

Re: WLC 3504 Unable to see AP 1560

Sure,  I'll do it first thing when I get back to the office. Does the management IP and interface need to be on the network we are going to be broadcasting?

 

We have 3 networks (Management 10.1.99.0/24, Local Plant 199.8.0.0/16, and Comcast 10.1.10.0/24). I put WLC management Interface to a trunked port on the switch, put the IP to 10.1.99.2, and set the management vlan to 99.  The plant network interface is being passed vlan 1, for our plant network.

 

At the moment, though, the AP is hardwired into the WLC.

 

Here's what show sysinfo has to say.

NTP state is "In Progress"?

This'll probably be the cause why the AP isn't joining the controller:  The WLC's time and date is incorrect.  

Re: WLC 3504 Unable to see AP 1560

Okay, I'm assuming its because I don't have NTP authentication checked. When I select that, what does "Key Index" mean?

 

Turns out the WLC is only reading from the management network (can't ping anything else on the network from the WLC CLI)

Re: WLC 3504 Unable to see AP 1560

Ok, so set the time and date as correct as possible and reboot the AP.
See if this gets the AP going.
