This issue is related to License because we do not use any license we just download VM image and run in EXSI Server?

This Issue is related AP compatibility  with 98000CL controller?

This issue is related AP profiling in controller ?

has the AP previously been connected to an AIROS WLC?

Found that you had to disable AP certificate validation on the AIROS WLC then push across to 9800

Also make sure that you have issued this command to the 9800

config vwlc-ssc key-size 2048 signature-algo sha256 password [password]

and make sure you use a decent length complex password as that also stopped APs from joining the 9800

yes AP previously associate with mobility controller. or AP current image is mobilty experess.


when im power up AP its request sent to both Mobilty controller or 9800 but join only mobilty controller, we want to associate AP with 9800 but rejection occur.


my query is this is licence issue Because our 9800 controller has no licence is trial VM image.

or another issue?

Make sure that you have configured wireless management interface.

cli command: wireless management interface vlan <VLAN ID>
