Switch wont adopt to controller

[ Edited ]

I have configured several UniFi switches before and added them using L3 adoption to our cloud controller server which runs on DigitalOcean

 

However, this time I cant get it to work

 

I have SSH to the switch, it can ping the default gateway, but it cant ping anything on the internet (like 'ping google.com' or 'ping 8.8.8.8')

 

When I go to set L3 adoption I use these commands

 

mca-cli

set-inform http://unifi.mysite.com:8080/inform

 

but then it does not show up in my controller like it usually would. The USG on the same network however was adopted just fine

 

I also tried updating the switch to the latest firmware by running a webserver on my PC and serving the latest firmware to it. I have Controller on v5.4.11 (latest) also

 

upgrade http://192.168.1.22/1.bin

 

(I renamed the fw file to 1.bin for easier typing)

 

I dont know how to debug this please help!

Re: Switch wont adopt to controller

I got it working ... weird. Maybed the USG was acting up. I replaced the USG with a ASUS and it adopted now, will troubleshoot the USG now
