I have set up a new installation of a Virtual Wireless Controller version 8.6. I am quite new to this software so I need some help om how to join the APs to the controller. I have connected a new AP to the same VLAN/IP-net as the controllers management-interface, but I can not see the AP from the controller. What do I need to do?
Solved! Go to Solution.
3 files attached:
putty-AP.pdf: Output from AP
putty-controller.pdf: Output from vWLC
putty-boot.pdf: Output from the APs boot-sequence.
I have replaced some of the IPs with x.x.x.x in the logs.
As you can see in the logs the AP can see the controller and tries to join, but I cannot see the AP on the controller.
I can now see the AP on the vWLC with operational status Downloading. But in the log it seem that the AP has problems with downloading an valid image. From the log I see:
