Please help me with the problem like :
My configuration is:
After upgrading controller software from 8.3.133 to 8.3.140 my only 2802i AP stopped work and boot began to fail with the message like this:
From the non PoE switches side I see different pictures depending on the model. On Cisco SB SF300 ports are down, on catalyst 3750V2 port is UP but no mac-address present. If I connect same AP2802i via PoE catalyst 4500 Ap2802I starts to work.
So I spouse there is a bug in 8.3.140. It affects only 2802 and 3802 connected via PoE injector.
So what should I do now? Fall back to 8.3.133 or wait to 8.3.’?’ update? We have no budget to upgrade all branch switches to PoE model.
We have no service contract, but depending on this bug purchasing of 100 2802 AP can be delayed or canceled.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thx a lot for fast replay Philip!
No. Not yet.
History is the following: after upgrading CT7510 from 8.3.133 to 8.3.140 at HQ the only 2802i failed to join controller. I decided that AP lost files on a flash during upgrade and asked to transfer it to HQ. Then I connect it via Cat4506 in HQ and it successfully joined CT7510 (different PoE and PoE+ card were used). Then I asked to transfer it back to branch. Then AP2802 failed to join controller again and port on the switch at the branch site was DOWN. My college at branch provided to me a console output.
So any changes in Controller configuration will have no effect on AP until I will manage to get AP to HQ again and establish ethernet connection with AP via PoE Catalyst. Only then I can try this configuration. So I’ll try it any way. Of course it will take time for logistics. But it seems very odd that on 8.3.133 AP2802i worked fine with INJecor and other 1602 and 1702 survived upgrade 8.3.133 to 8.3.140 with same (non PoE Cisco SB SF300 switch + PWR-INJ4/5 SB-PWRINJ-2) and default config.
Thanks a lot for reply!
I see the symptoms and output is very close to
When updates for 8.3.X are planned?
My previous working configuration was:
Cisco SB SF300-48, 10/100Mb port
After upgrade to 8.3.140 port failded and I have tried it with 100Mb port on WS-C3750V2-48TS (no 1G cooper ports on this switch) and on 100Mb and 1Gb (I'm not sure my cables are good enough for 1Gb) port on Cisco SB SF300-48.
All configurations do not work.
AP started ethernet only when i got it to HQ with 4500 PoE swith.
So for now I decided to test other power injector. I had ordered AIR-PWRINJ6 as replacement for SB-PWR-INJ2, witch worked fine with 2802AP and 8.3.133, and will test it is as soon as I get it.
Than I'll try 1Gb port with a 5e cable. If AIR-PWRINJ6 will not help I’ll manage to get 2802AP to HQ, connect it to CT7510 via Catalyst 4500 PoE switch and try to enable power injector
If this will not help should I wait for a new 8.3.XXX firmware, or downgrade to 8.3.133 will be the only option?
Any way I should get working config with injector because possible upgrade of about 100 1602AP to 2802AP (it is on hold now).
I have a new result now! It starts to work with SB-PWRINJ-2 and 1Ge port.
It is not possible for me to upgrade to 8.5 because of 1242 , 1262 Aps
So I have one working config for 2802 on 8.3.140:
Non PoE Cisco SB SF300; Ge port; SB-PWRINJ-2;
Will it work with PoE Cisco SB SF300-48PP; Fe PoE+ port?
Or I should downgrade to 8.3.133 to get 2802 work with 100Mb ports even when I have a PoE switch?
