AIR-OEAP602I not registering with virtual wireless controller

Dears,

i was trying to connect the 602 office extend AP to a virtual wireless controller (ver 7.6.100) with no luck.

this is event log on the access point:

Finally this is fixed. I

Finally this is fixed. I heard back from TAC (who had been working with the devs) and they had a solution. Here is the email I received from TAC:

"So the development team wanted to know if you could load a new OVA image 8.0 for your vWLC and CTVM of 8.2? 

 

There was an openssl upgrade and the OEAP600 only uses the old one.  So with the OVA 8.0 image and CTVM 8.2 it should resolve the issue.

 

Make sure to save your config just in case.

 

The process is:

Download OVA 8.0.135.0 from cisco.com

load it

Download AES 8.2.121.0 (which you already have)

load it

Then test a 600 and see if that works."

Yes this means deploying your vWLC again, which isn't ideal...but it works.

A couple caveats, after I did this it didn't work right away. I received an error on the SOHO that said "Failed to delete database entry." This message was a different one than I was getting before. A quick look on the Cisco forums and I saw other people had ran into this too. The solution was to deactivate and reactivate the evaluation license I had on the vWLC. This was installed while I upgraded the controller. After I did that, the access point joined. I imagine just installing your actual license would work as well.

I hope this helps.

Hi, *Nov 11 14:06:48.037:

Hi,

 

*Nov 11 14:06:48.037: Certificate verification failed!

What is the time on the controller ? Go to commands>set time to set the correct time. It should not be outside the validity interval of the Certificate. By the way , If possible go to 7.6.130.0 as 7.6.100.0 has many issues.

the controller time is the

the controller time is the current time now, and the DTLS certificate i installed 2 days ago from Cisco website but i could not find in the drop down list virtual controller so i installed the one of 2500 series.

do i need to install another certificate?! if yes what are the steps ?

 

thank you for your assistance

Hello, The issue with the

Hello,

 

The issue with the OEAP 600 and Virtual WLC is a software (firmware) related process. 

First, which software version have your OEAP 600? Is default-fabric version? Mostly have 7.0 from Cisco.

Depends on your vWLC software version, for 7.5 and above (I can see you have 7.6.100), you need first join the OEAP in a physical WLC (2500, 5500, 7500, WISM2, etc) with at least 7.5 software version. Those WLC uses MIC certificates, and can join the OEAP without any problem. vWLC uses SSC certificates to do this.

Once the OEAP has been registered to the physical WLC, and upgraded with a 7.5 (or superior) software, now you can try to join it at vWLC.

Previous step about the accurate time on the controller are important, because this is a certificate related process.

Try and tell me if you have any problem.

Regards.

Did you ever find a solution

Did you ever find a solution to this problem? I have the exact same thing going on. My OEAP602s won't join to my vWLC. I get the same "Certificate verification failed!" error.

I'm running 8.3.102.0 code on the vWLC now but I've tried everything from 7.4 to 8.0 to 8.1 to 8.2. I've also attached the 602 to our physical 5508 and then pointed it back to our vWLC. I've disabled the ssc hash check. And I've disabled the certificate expiration check (both ssc and mic). All with no luck. I do have a TAC case open but we seem to be hitting a wall with them too.

So if you have any insight it would be much appreciated.

I also have the exact same problem. My OEAP602 won't join my vWLC.

Also the same error "Certificate verification failed".

I am running 8.3.102.0 on vWLC too but tried 8.0\8.1\8.2. All have the same problem.

I also tried to connect OEAP to my physical 2504(8.3.102.0) and then connect it back to vWLC. I disabled the ssc hash check.

No luck at all.

Did you check time on vWLC?

Did you check time on vWLC? Are you using NTP?

Once you have the OEAP registered on a physical WLC you must be able to register it on a vWLC.

Cisco Employee

Yes. I checked the time on

Yes. I checked the time on vWLC and I make sure that the time and timezone is correct. Also I am using NTP.

Can you advise some debug command on vWLC so that I can provide more information?

New Member

We are using NTP as well and

We are using NTP as well and our time and timezone is correct. I'm working with Cisco TAC and the engineer I was working with couldn't find a reason why this wouldn't work. We really tried everything. He escalated it and it's now sitting with the developers. They were able to recreate the issue, so that's a positive. And they have now created a bug, CSCva80355 (my first Cisco bug). Hopefully they will have some news and (or) a workaround sooner rather than later. I will keep you posted on what they find.

One last thing. You will need

One last thing. You will need to manually add the data encryption feature for the tunnels to come up. This is basically a RTU (right to use) license after 8.0. To do this, jump into the CLI and run the command:

license add feature data_encryption

The tunnels should come up and you should be set.

Cisco Employee

Thank you very much!

Thank you very much!

Verified and your solution can work for me!
