I have LWAPP AIR-AP1231G-A-K9 that was moved from one site to the other one. It has now a different IP address taken from DHCP and its former controller does not exist any more.
I am trying to join it to the same kind of controller which is AIR-WLC4402-12-K9 with 220.127.116.11.
However the AP cannot join the controller, first I got these on the controller
0 Wed Jul 3 14:12:56 2013 AAA Authentication Failure for UserName:0014694b3ab2 User Type: WLAN USER
1 Wed Jul 3 14:12:56 2013 Failed to authorize AP with Base Radio MAC 00:14:69:4b:3a:b2. Authorization entry does not exist in Controller's AP Authorization List.
I added the MAC address of the AP into MAC filtering, and now getting these
AAA Authentication Failure for UserName:0014694b3ab2 User Type: WLAN USER
I am reading several discussions, but they seem to be related to mesh OS mismatch.
My AP is for sure not with mesh OS as it was connected to the controller before the move.
System image file is "flash:/c1200-k9w8-mx.124-23c.JA/c1200-k9w8-mx.124-23c.JA"
#sh capwap client config
Does anyone know what to do to get the AP joined to the controller ?
I had another AP where I tried to reset the LWAPP config - clear lwapp private-config, but this did not help and this AP is now constantly rebooting without allowing me to login. It looks like the only way how to wake it up would be to convert to autonomous and then back to LWAPP which is something I cannot do as I am too far from it.
This has the sounds of a ssc issues. When you converted the ap from autonomous to lwapp a self signed certificate was created. You need to add this hash to the controller.
