Cannot adopt and update AP

[ Edited ]

Every AP i currently have is on version 3.7.58.6385 and I am not able to adopt and upgrade from this SDN(5.10.9).  The device is a cloudkey gen 2 plus currently on latest firmware.

 

Is there a known issues?  I can take the AP to a different cloudkey gen 2 plus with the same version and everything works fine.

Re: Cannot adopt and update AP

Thank you.  However I used the following prodcedures to upgrade the AP's.  I had to get them to latest version before I could adopt them.  thanks for the help!

 

Windows Users:

1. Download the program WinSCP. This will allow a SCP session over SSH with a folder structure GUI. Use the SSH credentials to login into the UniFi Device. 

2. Download the bin file from our Downloads page.

3. Move the .bin file to the device's /tmp/ folder by dragging and dropping the file, rename file to fwupdate.bin.

4. Connect via SSH and issue the following command to initiate a local upgrade.

syswrapper.sh upgrade2 &

Re: Cannot adopt and update AP

Hello @nwkitsolutions,

 

SSH into the UAP and manually upgrade it.

Follow the upgrade path below:

 

3.7.58 > 3.9.54 > 4.0.21

 

You can use these commands to upgrade.

wget <firmware_binary_link_location> -O /tmp/fwupdate.bin
syswrapper.sh upgrade2 &

or

curl <firmware_binary_link_location> -o /tmp/fwupdate.bin
syswrapper.sh upgrade2 &

 

 

Regards,

Re: Cannot adopt and update AP

Is this using TFTP from ssh?

 

Not sure on this process.  Do i simply copy the commands you posted?

Hello @nwkitsolutions,

 

Not this isn't a TFTP Recovery...

Copy the commands and replace <firmware_binary_link_location> with the firmware binary link location located on the firmware release blog posts.

Re: Cannot adopt and update AP

Hello @nwkitsolutions,

 

It's the exactly same way but then using WinSCP.

Anyway, glad it worked!
