I have a new AP 230 which I have applied the config. It continues to show up as new in manager. the AP 230 currently has HIVE OS 6.1r5.1696 and Hive manager is Enterprise 6.1r3.
Can you post a screenshot of your configuration/Aerohive APs tab with the appropriate AP showing?
I do not believe you will be able to push anything out to the AP with it running newer HiveOS than the HM itself. And you cant downgrade the OS as 6.1r5 is the minimum needed for the AP230. You'll need to update your HM box to an equal or higher HiveOS.
Brian is exactly correct here.
