Aerohive AP230 firmware 6.1r6

  • Updated 6 months ago
I have an AP230 running the HiveOS 6.1r5 and try to upgrade via HiveManager NG.

And there is a notice:
Following devices can’t be upgraded automatically, please manually upgrade to 6.1r6 first

I don't have the Aerohive support portal account so can not download the firmware 6.1r6.
Is there anyone who can share the firmware 6.1r6 to me. Thank you very much.

Hi,

Can you tell me the serial number of the AP please?
Do you have a current support contract on the HiveManager?
What is the version of HM that you are using? (cloud/On-Premise?)

Kind Regards,
Gary Smith

Serial number: 02301403250692
Now I am using the 30 days trial of HiveManager NG.
I contacted seller but they can't offer the firmware.

Hi,

I have uploaded this old firmware at the link below so that you can install it via TFTP or the Web interface:

https://mega.nz/#!i0liDKib!cw64SVwcVs8Wsoi-HSv8zguoGz-v_JmbKbw9Ef-Sp1E

Your trial of HMNG should then be able to update this to current code, which I will not supply here.

Regards,

Nick Lowe

Nick,

I was given an ap230 and would like to configure, don't have the Aerohive support portal account.

Serial number: 02301405160059

attempted to use the 30 days trial of HiveManager NG, but can't connect because previous owners still have part of their hive.

Looking for Hive OS 6.8r1 - can you also put up a link for that version.

Hi Steve,

Sorry, I can't put a link up for that obsolete version of HiveOS.

As for freeing up the serial, I suggest discussing this with the support team via:

Thanks,

Nick

Thanks for the response. Can you advise of the most recent version for the AP230?
Currently using 6.2.r6. Figured 6.8 was more recent than 6.2 and 6.1 mentioned above, confused as to why version 6.1 link can be posted but not 6.8.

Hi Steve,

As of posting, the most recent releases for the AP230 are HiveOS 6.5r8b and HiveOS 8.2r1

HiveOS 6.1r6 was a prerequisite update that had to manually be installed on APs before they could then be updated by HiveManager. That is why it is was posted here, special circumstances.

Once an AP is added to HMNG, it can then be updated.

Cheers,

Nick
