I am starting a upgrade deployment of hundreds of new 2602s, and they are all coming up in mesh/bridge (MAP) mode out of the box. This is really slowing down the deployment.
I have to:
- put each AP's MAC in the MAC filter (to pre-authenticate the APs)
- manually prime each AP at CLI (they won't find a controller even though discovery via DNS and DHCP option 43 are available (and both have been working for years with the current mix older APs)
- change each to local mode
Anyone know why these are not coming up in local mode out of the box?
Anyone know of a more efficient deployment process than I described?
