Upgrading IOS on AP1130AG

I am trying to find out if the bootloader version and the system software version must match eachother. I downloaded the new IOS for our AP1130AG's.

File: c1130-k9w7-tar.123-8.JEA2

From the web based GUI on one of my 1130's I selected System Software>>Software Upgrade>>.

Browsed to the tar file and let the device upgrade and reboot.

The thing I don't get is, when I look at the device now its version reads the following:

Product/Model Number: AIR-AP1131AG-A-K9

Top Assembly Serial Number: FTX0XXXXXXXXXXX

System Software Filename: c1130-k9w7-tar.123-8.JEA2

System Software Version: 12.3(8)JEA2

Bootloader Version: 12.3(7)JA1

System Uptime: 35 minutes

Should the bootloader version match the system software version? If so, how can I makethat happen? Is there a file I must download?

Hi Paul,

No worries here my friend :) This is standard and they don't need to match. Here is another example of an old AP we had kicking around;

Model info and software versions below:

Product/Model Number: AIR-AP1121G-A-K9

Top Assembly Serial Number:

System Software Filename: c1100-k9w7-tar.123-8.JEB1

System Software Version: 12.3(8)JEB1

Bootloader Version: 12.3(2)JA4

Hope this helps!
