I have a few questions related to the aP460e and NX5500.
1: How do I console in to the 460e / and or see the gui of it? I have a console cable and when I try to console in with putty this is what I see.
I understand if these take some time to answer. The answers I get from you guys are always really helpful so thank you again in advance for your time and any of the questions you’re able to answer for me.

Layer 3 adoption is the way to go in this case; however, there are 3 methods for layer 3 adoption as such:
1 - Configure option 191 on your DHCP server. Once an AP is plugged in it will pull the necessary information for layer 3 adoption. This is an automated way of doing this
2 - Configuring the controller host command on APs, per instructions sent previously. This will have to be configured on APs once plugged in at remote site
3 - Prestage the APs, meaning adopt them locally by the controller and have them pull all the necessary information then install them remotely. They should know how to get back to the controller thereafter if all is properly configured.
I hope this helps,
If you’re saving the settings (com wr) on the AP then they should persist a reboot. Something else is happening here. The easiest way to do this would be to follow these steps:
On the controller completely remove the AP, this will insure that no lingering settings are being pushed to the AP once it adopts:
1 - From GUI go to Configure > Devices > Device Configuration > Select AP > Click on the Delete button > Click on Commit and Save
2 - On the AP, reconfigure the controller host commands in ‘Self’ then save and have it adopt
3 - Once adopted, SSH into the AP again and run the following commands:
4 - Verify that the controller host commands are still there.
5 - On the Controller make sure you configure same commands in the AP profile and also confirm that the host command settings are also configured for this AP as overrides:
I hope this helps,
Something I did notice is even though I typed in the controller host command and saved the configuration, if I reboot the access point and check the adoption status it defaults to becoming it’s own controller still and I have to type in the controller host command again. Is there a way to get that to persist?
The controller should just manage the AP settings even though it’s at a remote building, which it is doing that. I made a test SSID just to see how it would be handled. You may or may not know why but for some reason the ping or time it takes to ping google or elsewhere is very high. In this picture I’m adding its the test ssid vs what we have on our old system. I have everything configured the same as the old system so I’m not sure if it has something to do with the AP now being managed at a remote building now.
I’m also not sure if it’s because the AP460e I’m testing it on doesn’t have antennas yet, or if something weird is going on and I need to use different vlans.
Here are some of the errors I’m setting when consoled into the AP:
<4>CCB:10:BAD_PACKET: Bcast/Mcast ICMP not allowed :
<4>CCB:37:INVALID PADDING: hop-by-hop extension header contains more than one pad1 option back to back
<4>CCB:8:IP-MAC CONFLICT: Conflict in ip-mac binding between packet and snoop table data : Vlan = 1,
any ideas or suggestions to test out?
