Aircontrol dish showing offline because MAC is similar

[ Edited ]

I have a dish that was just added to AC2, when it was added, a dish with a similar mac address went offline in AC2. When I try to "reconnect now" it errors and says a device with that mac address is already present. The last 4 digits match.

 

Mac #1 that is still offline: FC:ECMan Very HappyA:CE:37:A4

Mac #2 that is online:         B4:FB:E4:6A:37:A4

 

Running 2.1.1-Beta

 

Both dishes are Powerbeam 5AC gen2

do they use DHCP and may have switched IPs?
Check server logs and search for these MACs to see when it started and what happened afterwards.

@Wifimax this might happen because of device IP changes and manually reconnecting. Normally device should come back online automatically and does not need reconnecting manually. Do you got ant warning that HostKey has changed and accepted it?
