WLC 4402 with 1231g


I got a problem with a LWAPP 1231 and 4402 WLC. The convertion procedure goes fine, but when the AP tries to join to controller i find some errors on the AP and does not register on the WLC.

Errors on the AP:

*Mar 1 00:00:23.718: %LWAPP-5-CHANGED: LWAPP changed state to DISCOVERY

Mar 1 00:00:34.383: %LWAPP-5-CHANGED: LWAPP changed state to JOIN

Mar 1 00:00:40.395: LWAPP_CLIENT_ERROR_DEBUG: spamHandleJoinTimer: Did not rec

ieve the Join response

*Mar 1 00:00:40.395: LWAPP_CLIENT_ERROR_DEBUG: No more AP manager IP addresses remain.

Mar 1 00:00:40.447: %SYS-5-RELOAD: Reload requested by LWAPP CLIENT. Reload Reason: DID NOT GET JOIN RESPONSE.

*Mar 1 00:00:40.447: %LWAPP-5-CHANGED: LWAPP changed state to DOWNXmodem file s

ystem is available.

WLC version: AIR-WLC4400-K9-4-2-112-0.aes

AP version: c1200-rcvk9w8-tar.123-11JX1.tar

Hope it helps.

Thank you very much

Re: WLC 4402 with 1231g

The AP 1231 is an older one, and probably has a Self-Signed Certificate (SSC). Newer APs have MIC, or Manufacture Installed Certificate. You need to enable SSC on the controller and add the certificate hash to the controller to allow it to join. The certificate hash should have been given to you as an output file from the upgrade process. Also, be sure your controller's time is current - I recommend an NTP server.
