Unable to add FortiAP to Fortigate Wireless Controller

Hi everyone,

Im trying to manage new APs with Fortigate Wireless Controller, but without success.


Firstly I enable CAPWAP and DHCP Server on Fortigate interface

(Fortigate <-> FortiSwitchPOE <-> FortiAPs)

Fortigate: v6.0.8 build0303 (GA)

FortiAP-U231F
FortiAP-23JF


I made a packet capture on Fortigate Interface and i have CAPWAP Discovery Requests from FortiAPs to Fortigate.

On 

config wireless-controller wtp-profile 

 I cannot see those AP models.

What should i do?

Hi. U231F is not compatible with FortiOS 6.0.8 ,you need version 6.4.3 in the Fortigate or newer.

Hi jnfelix,

 

if you are using a mgmt vlan to connect APs make sure capwap is enabled on it as well.

Thanks for the info ConnyGustavsson.
I didn't check that matrix before.

Do you suggest the upgrade or FortiLAN Cloud do a good job? 

ConnyGustavsson

if your FG support 6.4 and there is no obvious reason to stay on 6.0; upgrade to 6.4.7 (Check upgrade path)  //C
