The IP address of the AP and the WLC are on different subnets. Can the AP ping the Management IP address of the controller?

Re: Trying to get AIR-AP1562I-E-K9 to Join WLC

Thanks for your reply

Nice Catch.....

But yes the are abel to See eachother - We do have more subnets - But ALL the 800 AP, is located on the same net.

I did test the Switch I am trying to connect to AP to whit a 2802I (our new choice of AP) - That one goes online, and have no trouble Connecting to my WLC, and are being shown in my Prime.

 

So the problem is whit the AP1562I as I see it.

Hi,

Are you sure that you add the AP mac addess on WLC?

Complete these steps:

  1. From the WLC controller GUI, click Security > AP Policies. The AP Policies page appears.
  2. Click the Add button on the right hand side of the screen.
  3. Under Add AP to Authorization List, enter the AP MAC address.

 Still fail then please paste the complete bootup process from  Cisco AP Console.

What "white list"?  I have 1562I/D in my network and I didn't put any white list.

I just enabled DHCP Option 43 and off they went.

Re: Trying to get AIR-AP1562I-E-K9 to Join WLC

Hi there ,

 

Looks like this model is still in the mesh mode and u may need to first convert it to local mode. Can u provide the output of "show capwap client config command" from the AP ?

Ideally , for the mesh mode Aps to join the WLC, you need to first configure the MAC of the AP in the auth-list in the WLC. Security >> AP policies >> auth list

However , there is also a way to convert the mesh AP to local mode from the AP cli and then make it join the WLC. I am assuming that you don't have the intentions of using this Ap in mesh mode.

Re: Trying to get AIR-AP1562I-E-K9 to Join WLC

I noticed in reading the release notes for the earlier version that the AP1562I had to manually upgraded in order to connect to the controller.  I wonder if this may be the same issue for you...

 

I also came across an article that mentioned the AP booting up in Mesh mode and not connecting to the Controller...

 

I think that is about all i can think of...

 

Hope you get some help... I am curious what the answer is to this.

Re: Trying to get AIR-AP1562I-E-K9 to Join WLC

Last time and i'll stop guessing...

 

Where you added the MAC address is there a checkbox that says "Accept Manufactured Installed Certificate (MIC).

 

Can you check it and apply and see if that corrects your issue.

Beginner

Re: Trying to get AIR-AP1562I-E-K9 to Join WLC

I too have this exact problem.
No, the MIC thing doesn't work.
No, adding that wlc address manually doesn't work.
It looks like I will have to manually downgrade the software on the 1562I.

Mal.

Re: Trying to get AIR-AP1562I-E-K9 to Join WLC

My AP didn't join WLC too, untill I did two things:

1. Added AP's MAC address to the filter at Security tab

2. Installed AP BUNDLE in addition to my image
