I know there are quite a few posts on this, however I have read many of them and also read over troubleshooting docs. I Upgraded ap 1231 to lwapp with upgrade tool, now it will not join WLC 2106.

However upgraded 1242 ap joined with no problems, same process.

Error messages on the controller are:

Jul 10 14:38:54.222: %LWAPP-3-RADIUS_ERR: spam_radius.c:138 Could not send join reply, AP authorization failed; AP:00:0f:23:21:67:7a

Join status:

RADIUS authorization is pending for the AP

Error messages on the AP are:

  • Cisco Employee,

Make sure you added the AP's mac address to the AP authorization list. Typically that message means that the AP's mac address and the SSC hash were not added.

I tried to add the MAC under that tab, but could not find out how to obtain the sha1 hash it is asking for.
