2700 AP do not join Mobility Express fresh install

Hi!

 

I have a 2800 AP in mobility express mode but I cannot get my other 2700 AP to join the controller. I have the time right but the 2700 ap do not want to join the mobility express controller. Everything is reachable l2 and l3. I see the 2700 ap in the controller but It will not join. I have just reinstalled the ap3g2-k9w8-tar.152-4.JB6 image on the Lightweight ap and the AIR-AP2800-K9-ME-8-5-151-0 software on the 2800 mobility express AP.

 

192.168.10.251 is the IP of the controller(2800AP)

 

I get these messages from the 2700 AP:

I think you should upgrade your AP to the same version as ME, if you didn't set tftp on ME.

Have you tried putting the images on a remote repository? Try the following guide:

Re: 2700 AP do not join Mobility Express fresh install

Hi,

 

8.5 and later versions need to use c3700 to join ME. If your AP version is lower than 8.5,

you need to upgrade to ap3g2 and then upgrade to c3700. After that, you can successfully join.

 

I hope this will help you.

 

Best regards,

Re: 2700 AP do not join Mobility Express fresh install

Thanks a lot for the help and pointers. My 2700 AP had software version 7.6.100.0. 

 

I have upgraded the 2700 AP to ver LWAPP image version 8.8.120.0. The controller has Product Version.................................. 8.5.151.0.

 

I get IP from DHCP but I do not discover WLC. Is there any manual way to set WLC on the AP?

 

*Aug 10 10:02:22.755: %CAPWAP-3-DHCP_RENEW: Could not discover WLC. Either IP address is not assigned or assigned IP is wrong. Renewing DHCP IP.

I enabled Debug on the WLC and get this:

Re: 2700 AP do not join Mobility Express fresh install

Hi, 

 

You may need to use the following commands.

 

1. Set ip address and gateway

2602#capwap ap ip address 10.127.209.200 255.255.255.0
2602#capwap ap ip default-gateway 10.127.209.129

2. Set the address of the controller

2602#capwap ap controller ip address 10.127.209.201 

3. Check configuration

2602#show ip int brief 
2602#show capwap client config 
2602#show capwap client rcb 

4. For debugging.

(1) WLC

debug capwap event enable
debug capwap error enable
debug capwap packet enable
debug dtls all enable

(2) AP
debug dtls client error
debug dtls client event
debug capwap client error
debug capwap client event
debug capwap client packet

Best regards,

Re: 2700 AP do not join Mobility Express fresh install

I have tried the debug commands now and I change the clock but It just jumps back 2-3 hours after I have done this. The clock on the WLC is good. I have one working 1815 and 2800 AP that has joined the WLC so I know the problem is this 2700 AP. I do not understand what can be wrong here, but I post the error messages I get. Thanks again for the great help! :)

I think you should upgrade your AP to the same version as ME, if you didn't set tftp on ME.

Re: 2700 AP do not join Mobility Express fresh install

Good Idea, but I struggle to find the exact same version of the 2700 lightweight software. In the Cisco download page It just tell me for example c3700-k9w8-tar.153-3.JG1.tar. I don't find the exact 8.5.151.0 version for the 2700 ap. I don't quite understand how I setup TFTP on the cisco wlc so the AP can automatically download the right IOS.

Re: 2700 AP do not join Mobility Express fresh install

This fixed the join problem. When the AP and controller has the same version It joined the controller. Thanks a lot for all the help! :)

Re: 2700 AP do not join Mobility Express fresh install

Hi,

 

I am so glad to hear that your problem has been solved.

 

Let me share some knowledge points with you, because you are still using your ME,

these may be useful in the future.

 

1. ME is different from WLC, it is more like a simplified version of WLC.

ME does not have ap image in it, so AP can't automatically download image from ME,

you need some extra operations.

* You may also need to use the "debug capwap console cli" command beforehand.

 

2. If you don't know which version of the AP corresponds to the ME version, please check the link below.
