Re: How can i disable mesh?

When you are upgrading code in a WLC with indoor or outdoor mesh access points, you need to use the pre-image download feature to push the image to these mesh APs. You can't disable mesh per say unless all of them are wired. Mesh 1550's con be put into FlexConnect mode, but that requires an Ethernet connection or else you will leave that AP stranded. I have upgraded code on many environments with no issues doing it this way.

Make sure that the mesh back haul is stable also, because the log you posted doesn't look familiar to me when you use the pre image download. It just looks like an issue when the mesh APs isn't connecting or a map changes to a new parent rap.

Re: How can i disable mesh?

hi Scott,

i need to change image to autonomous and i m trying everything. i m trying to find wayout the cisco 1552e hell... problem is 1552e doesn t use ftp, tftp, scp or other protocols. i installed the wireshark to server notebook and listen the network. other machines, pc notebook etc. connecting to server ftp, tftp ,scp and all other ports perfectly just the freak 1552e doesn t. 1552e ping to server also server ping to 1552e. it totaly normal but when i try :

archive download-sw /overwrite /reload ftp://sturk:sturk@10.0.0.3/c1520-k9w7-tar.152-4.JA1.tar

archive download-sw /overwrite /reload tftp://10.0.0.3/c1520-k9w7-tar.152-.JA1.tar

here is the freak error :

%Error opening tftp://10.0.0.3/c1520-k9w7-tar.152-.JA1.tar (Timed out)

Download image failed, notify controller!!! From:7.4.1.37 to 0.0.0.0, FailureCode:15

anyway thanks again...

Re: How can i disable mesh?

You need to understand that it is a lightweight access point and the ap will reboot as part of the process of it trying to find the WLC. So this is normal and any lightweight AP will go through this. You also have to understand that this ap is in mesh mode which also makes it difficult. Typically you would purchase these with the autonomous code, but in your case you now have to convert it. So what you need to do is issue this on the console of the 1552 which will stop the AP from reloading.

debug capwap client no-reload

Then perform the upload

Hi Scott, I tried to convert

Hi Scott, 

I tried to convert my AIR-CAP-1552SA in Standalone mode  and I got the same error than Servisturk:

Download image failed, notify controller!!! From:7.4.1.37 to 0.0.0.0, FailureCode:15

archive download: takes 38 seconds

Did you find a solution ?

Thx for your Help. 

Ps: If i convert my AP on standalone mode, mesh still working ?

try these ap commands: debug

try these ap commands:

 

debug capwap console cli

test mesh mode local

 

..then try the image download again

I've discovered this 15.3(3

I've discovered this 15.3(3)JC, on a 1532e access point.

For whatever reason, "mesh" mode seems to be known as "bridge" mode in the CLI.

To check what mode you are in:

show capwap client config

To turn off mesh, change it to "local" mode (take note this forces a reload):

capwap ap mode local

Still haven't made it live in a production network, so take care - but I hope this helps.
