Changing SSID passwords.

I have changed old password for one of my SSID's but the old password still works and the new one does not. I have confirmed that the change is saved and the password I want is in the correct fields, it is not applying to the AP's as a new passkey, and to get rid of the old one.

Hi James,

did you push the config to all the APs or did you just save the changes within the HiveManager ?


Kind regards,
Hannes

Yes, we have multiple profiles under one SSID, we have changed the actual passkey twice and when we update all the devices it still takes the old password and won't accept the new one. We even removed the profile and PSK and enabled it and updated it and still no change at all.

If you have not already done so, can you try doing a complete configuration upload to the APs rather than a differential/delta upload?

(Also, just to check, what version of HiveManager are you using? What version of HiveOS is running on the APs?)

Nick is onto something, maybe a complete upload and reboot will do the trick. could be AP local cached credentials, although I don't see this behaviour with my test equipment.

I just tried doing the same with AP370 HiveOS 6.0r2d with HMOP 6.1r3  - change took without a complete upload, but I had to clear cached info on the client in order to connect.

so created ssid added PSK
pushed config to AP
then connected client
then disconnect client
changed ssid PSK
then pushed config
then tried to connect, but client could not connect until I removed the client profile and typed in the new passphrase.

you could do a show auth and see the local cache table

and

AP#clear auth
    local-cache     Clear all entries from the local cache, which contains
                    authentication information for stations currently
                    connected to the local HiveAP
    roaming-cache   Clear all entries from the roaming cache, which contains
                    authentication information for stations currently
                    connected to neighboring hive members
    station         Clear authentication information for a specific station
    username        Clear dynamic authentication information by user name
