We just had our HMOL updated to 6.1r1 and our AP-330's to HiveOS 6.1r1.1247. I am now seeing occasional SysLog messages that state: "capwap: ERROR: failed to upload file xxxxxxxxxxxx000xx.hpr to remote server!" and "capwap: ERROR: failed to upload file xxxxxxxxxxxx000xx.lpr to remote server!"

xxxxxxxxxxxx000xx is an AP mac address with a trailing number leading with 000.

I am just curious if anyone else has seen this or knows what this is/means.
CAPWAP, SSH, NTP, HTTPS ports are allowed outbound.

Those files are the reports sent from AP to HiveManager with the application usage data that populate the Application dashboard and widgets. Aerohive AP uses TCP 443 to transmit this data, so that must be open outbound from each AP.

You indicated it was an sporadic issue. How often, and is it only from one AP or from several (you can tell by the MAC in the message).
