Hi, what is the firmware version of your RFS4000? For the new version of AP7522 you will need 5.8.xxx or above.

Are all devices in the same VLAN? You can check for MINT "show mint neighbors".

"show adoption history" show you, if the AP connect to the RFS, but maybe no adoption policy is configured.

Additional to this, min. firmware for the latest APs is 5.8.6.5., SKU -1-WR. For the old SKUs 5.8.x is right.

Adoption will not happen unless the firmware is equal or greater than of the WLC. You will need to upgrade the RFS4K to the firmware that is same or higher as the AP7522. (For AP7522 you will need 5.8.xxx or above)

you can verify the firmware version after you login to either the AP or WLC via CLI with command 'show version'

Also on the WLC( rfs4k) you can run CLI command 'show adoption status' - you should see the AP7522 in the output but with error 'version-mismatch'

What means adoption status version-mismatch
Is evident that you has a firmware issue . You need to have the same firmware versión

Hello Dimas,

To start with, make sure that:

1 - The firmware on the controller supports the AP7522: >show version
Check to see if you have an AP7522 profile: >show running-config include-factory | grep profile
2 - The AP7522 and controller can see each other. >show mint neighbors
3 - You have enough licenses for adoption of additional APs: >show licenses
4 - The AP7522 is not behind a routed switch. In this case you will have to configure additional parameters for layer 3 adoption

Thank you,

Chris

Depends on the connected APs. Best way is to check the release notes. Also check, if the APs are supported by the version.

Also important to note that AP7522E express model AP's will not adopt to non express controller platforms. Just in case...
