I know this sound weird, but i really want to downgrade a AP using OS 6.2r1b.1933 to 4.0r1.0369.
Is this possible? Do i need something in the Hive manager? Maybe a certain hive OS image file?
I got the 4.0r1.0369 image file in Hive manager.
Will the AP even support a downgrade, if it is a newer AP?
Plz. dont make this about why i want to downgrade. The simple explanation is money.
Best regards Mike Kristensen
Don't know if you can download these files directly from Aerohive but maybe you can request them via e-mail or support case.
But version 4 is very old, not sure if it's supported anymore and I certainly would not recommend you tried to downgrade this far.
I don't know if Hivemanager connects with this firmware version and I think you're going to get more problems than solutions with this action.

So, technically, this should just depend on the model of the AP and the hardware revision of it. If the AP you have is of a hardware revision that HiveOS 4.0 does not support, you cannot use it. There, however, may be other complications going back so far that I am not aware of.
I can supply you with this HiveOS version if you are sure that this is what you want to do. For the record, I do not recommend it and we do not support it.
I dont the hardware version.
It would make me very happy if you could send me the HiveOS 4.0r1.0369 for the AP120 to firstname.lastname@example.org
We used 4.0r1.0369 the last 3 years, with approx. 300 users on wifi all day. Noone got any problems ever. Everyone can always connect to the internet, its fast, its furious, its super duper.
So i just want to keep on using this system, until we change the whole platform.
Can i ask you guys something else?
Can we buy and use new AP's, for this Hivemananger? Or is it better to look at a cloud based system, when we sometime wants to reconsider our network setup?
Mike, I feel your pain in wanting to downgrade the OS on an AP. I have done this but not to that extreme. I have some 110 and 120 APs that just decide to stop sending traffic when I upgrade to the 6 code. I have been able to downgrade them back to the 5 code I still have in the list. What I don't know is if it is possible to go backwards from a NEW AP.
