Unifi AP LR is not upgrading

Hey there,

 

I am having quite the issue. My last controller pooped the bed, and I had no backup because I am stupid. I have set up a new controller and I now need to rest all my AP's so I can re-adopt them to my new controller.

 

My issue is this: I have an AP-LR in our Florida office (I am in Chicagoland, as is the controller) and when I used to attempt to update the firmware it would get stuck in a downloading firmware/reboot loop. Which was fine, I just left it and it worked well on older firmware.

 

But now, my controller is running the current software version 5.10.19, and the AP is at 3.7.39.6089. The only option I have it to "upgrade and adopt" which I tried, and once again it gets stuck in an upgrading/reboot loop.

 

Can I adpot the AP without upgrading the firmware? If so, where is that option? This office is getting Meraki AP's later this month or begining of next month, I just need it to work for a little longer since this is the only AP in said FL office.

 

(side note, I am very much not looking forwared to getting on a scisor lift to manually reset 22 warehouse AP's here in my building)

Hello @klyneis,

 

SSH into the UAPs and upgrade via CLI

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 &

 

Upgrade path:

3.7.39 > 3.7.58 > 3.9.54 > 4.0.21

Thatks for the help!!

 

Going from 3.7.39 to 3.7.58 worked via the CLI, but now that I am at 3.7.58, when I run the command to go to 3.9.54 i get an error

wget https://dl.ubnt.com/unifi/firmware/BZ2/3.9.54.9373/BZ.ar7240.v3.9.54.9373.180913.2356.bin -O /tmp/fwupdate.bin
-sh wget: not found

 

 

EDIT: I figured it out, When I got to 3.7.58 the wget command didn't work anymore. So after looking around on the internet, I tried

upgrade https://dl.ubnt.com/unifi/firmware/BZ2/3.9.54.9373/BZ.ar7240.v3.9.54.9373.180913.2356.bin -O /tmp/fwupdate.bin

and it downloaded and automagiclly upgraded the firmware without having to run the 2nd part of the command

syswrapper.sh upgrade2 &

Once I got to 3.9.54, I was able to run the "adopt and upgrade"command successfully from the controller.

 

 

Thanks for the help!!

Hello @klyneis,

 

Awesome, glad the UAP is adopted!

I forgot to put the second method in my previous reply.

 

You can also use:

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