AP370 and DFS

  • Updated 3 years ago
Whenever I configure an 802.11a/n/ac radio profile with the DFS option enabled, I get an error when trying to push the profile/config to AP370s. The message reads "An error occurred when executing the following CLI command: radio profile (profile name) dfs. Unknown error"

Are AP370s not certified for the UNII-2 band/DFS channels?

I can push the same radio profile to my AP230s without any errors. My 370s are running version HiveOS 6.0r2f

What version of HiveManager are you using?
Any reason that you've not updated to HiveOS 6.5r2 on your AP370s?

6.4r1

I wasn't aware there was a new version of the HMOL. When I go to Home > Administration > HiveManager Operations > Update Software it says there isn't a newer version available.

You need to put a request in to your point of support asking to be moved to a 6.5rX release of HMOL.

Ah, I didn't know that was an option; I figured the latest release was made available to HMOL instances as soon as it was deemed stable. I'll get a ticket submitted.

That's normally the case.

HiveOS 6.5r2 was a special release only for the AP370/AP390 to bring much needed feature parity.

HiveOS 6.5r3 is a golden, long term stable release and is due very soon. That will be available for all current 802.11n/802.11ac APs and you will be offered to update to the supporting HMOL release within HMOL itself - known as 'Flying the Bee'.

Excellent. These AP370s have been collecting dust for far too long. It was quite frustrating to discover the cheaper AP230s behaved so much better, after springing for a bunch of AP370s that were almost unusable at launch. 6.0r2f killed most of the show stoppers, but our 370s have still been rather flaky.

Owning 370s *has* been a frustrating experience, but to be fair the latest HiveOS versions do a lot to address the problems, albeit about a year too late. We even get spectrum analysis, well worth the upgrade :-)
