Hello All,

 

I have more than 150+ AP in my corporate network and when I tried to add a new one, it gives me this error during the discovery.

 

AP Model: AIR-AP2802E-Z-K9 

AP Running Image : 8.3.143.0

I tried

  • Add AP Mac into Auth List

Can someone give me an advice for the right direction please?

Did you try the Clear AP configuration using the below command?

AP#capwap ap erase

Hi, 

 

Check licenses if not already.

Try upgrade the AP directly to ME and the put it back on Lightweight in the same version of the WLC.

It worked for me with 1852 and 2504wlc
