This started way before summer, and I thought it was fixed.
I made a minor change to the power on wifi1 interface (but basically any change i make), select the device, click on Update Device. Leave the default Update Network Policy and Configuration » Delta Configuration Update checked. I see the progress bar area show Queued for a few seconds, and then Device Update Failed is displayed next to the AP.
Hovering my pointer on the Device Failed to Update, i see this “Could not generate CLI configuration. Execute Method failed, with class”…………………….
Here are all the steps I tried, all of which failed:
- I rebooted the AP, once it came back up, i tried a Delta Configuration Update. It failed.
- I tried a Complete Configuration Update on the AP. It failed.
- Rebooted the AP again, once it came back up I tried a Complete Configuration Update. It failed.
- Went into the Aruba 2920 switch, disabled the port that the AP is plugged into (its like unplugging the AP), waited 10 minutes and then re-enabled the port. Once the AP came back up I tried a Delta Configuration Update. It failed.
- Went back into the Aruba 2920 switch, disabled the same port again, waited 10 minutes and then re-enabled the port. Once the AP came back up I tried a Complete Configuration Update. It failed.
This is insane. This issue is going on with any of my 160 AP’s, doesn't matter what change I've made to the AP, whether its changing the channel its on, or the power on one of the interfaces. I remember when this first reared its ugly head, we just had the banner show up at the top of the web interface, stating it had been upgraded (IQ Engine?). We have not changed our network infrastructure in any way, so I'm absolutely positive its nothing we have done.
I need to make small changes to most the AP’s on campus. I need to fine tune all of our AP’s because of Cross Channel Interference, and so need to make changes with power and channels on the AP’s. This issue is holding me back.
How can this be resolved? We have 160 AP’s most of them are attached to the ceilings, so whatever the fix, it better not involve grabbing a paperclip, ladder and interrupting classes.
Whats going on? this is an AP650(AH), and all I did this time, was change the power from Auto to 5db.
I didnt realize my issue was still going on. But it never happened until an ExtremeIQ update (i remember seeing a banner ages ago, and thats when this started). The AP is running 10.0.r5.
Any help to get this resolved that does require a paperclip and ladder is appreciated.
