WlanPoller misidentifying 2802i?

perrymcgrew

I am trying a testrun of WlanPoller to preload an 2802i AP connected to a 5508 with IOS-XE code in preparation to move over to 9800-L.

The %apimage% is being substituted with wrong image name.   Somehow it's trying to load x700 image instead of the ap3g3 firmware.  No idea where it is picking up this image name.  

The logs show: 

<run timestamp='2023-07-21T13:48:15.109089' device='cos' hostname='HER-04-AP-01' model='AIR-AP2802I-B-K9' version='8.5.182.104'>

Hello,

I can see your post as per my experience i give you some details please follow step by step all details see below.

 

To resolve this issue, you need to ensure that you are using the correct image name for the AIR-AP2802I-B-K9 access point model. The correct image name for the 2802i access point is usually in the format "ap3g3-k9w8-tar.XX.XX.tar" (where XX.XX represents the version number). Double-check the correct image name for the IOS-XE firmware that you want to preload onto the access point.

Once you have the correct image name, modify the "archive download-sw" command accordingly. For example:
archive download-sw /no-reload tftp://192.168.40.98/ap3g3-k9w8-tar.XX.XX.tar

 

Make sure that the TFTP server at 192.168.40.98 has the correct image file (ap3g3-k9w8-tar.XX.XX.tar) in the root directory or the directory specified for TFTP file transfers.

Also, ensure that the access point's configuration allows for TFTP transfers and that any firewall or access control list is not blocking the TFTP communication between the access point and the TFTP server.

I hope my suggestion is work for you.

If any problem please tell me.

One more think if it's work please select as best answer.

Thanks. I have the correct 2802i AP firmware in the directory that the TFTP is looking at.  I am testing this utility against a single AP -- which is a 2802i.  The utility is supposed to query the AP and substitute the correct firmware image in the %apimage% variable.   I can't see or figure out why it substituted ap3g2 - which is 3700 series image name -- for the 2802.  It should be using ap3g3.   The ap3g2 image does not exist in the directory

Update.  In the cmdlist_cos.txt file I tried replacing the %apimage% with ap3g3 and ran the wlanpoller.exe and it appears to have worked.   The log showed the following:

The 5508 still showed the AP was loaded with 8.5.182.104.  I tried the usual WLC commands to try and verify that the IOS-XE code was preloaded, but it couldn't get it to show.  When I flipped the AP over to the 9800LF, it joined quickly.  It looks like it only took the 1 reboot to join the 9800L.  

I am preparing to run this against my 181 2802i APs .  Has anyone run into any issues with this wlanpoller?  

Thx
