Hi all,


I have problems upgrading my 1131 Autonomous to LWAPP to be used towards an WLC 4402.


I have used the Upgrade tool and tried with 2 different versions of the Cisco recovery image on 2 different 1131 hardware boxes.


The upgrade seeems to go ok all the way. It downloads the image, reboot, connects to our WLC and starts the download of latest image from the WLC.

But at next restart it won't connect.


Version of WLC is 4.2.130. WLC is accepting self signed certs from AP's.

The WLC has 8 functioning AP's connected. These AP's where LWAPP from start though.


The WLC gives me the following errors when running debug:

Seems like the AP is not sending a Country code at all "Invalid country code ()."

The WLC and AP's are in different countries (Sweden and Belgium), but that has been prepared for in the WLC which accept both.


Any ideas?

Hi,


Both BE and SE is enabled in this WLC.


But from the WLC debug I can't see that the AP is even presenting it's country code to the WLC.

What WLC firmware are you using?


From the AP, can you ping the WLC's Management IP address?


In enable mode from the AP, can you try the command lwap ap controller ip address .


Hope this helps.

Solved.


I had the errormessage from the beginning... But found it to unlikely...


"Regulatory domain check failed"


The supplier for our Belgian site has delivered a model of AIR-AP1131AG-N-K9, which is a US version.

What I need is AIR-AP1131AG-E-K9 for our European sites.

Thanks for the assistance.

I have also seen the following occur with autonomous APs - you get a unit shipped with a 2.4 radio in one country code and the 5 radio in another country code. This won't keep the AP from joining, but it will shut down whichever radio isn't supported.


Regards,

Scott
