Question

Can I keep an AP in Standalone mode on a ZD managed network?

Customer Environment

AP, ZD, standalone mode AP

Root Cause

AP joined ZD when connected in the same network

Troubleshooting Steps


1. Try accessing the AP GUI with default credentials

2. Try accessing with different browsers

3. Check if there is any ZD present in the same network

Resolution

After figuring out that there is a ZD in the network, try accessing the AP with ZD's credentials.

To configure Access Point in standalone mode and without connecting to ZoneDirector in the network

If Access Point is managed by Zone Director then Factory default and proceed as below:

 
1. Before connecting the Access Point in network, connect Access Point to laptop and SSH into it using application like Putty.

2. Provide the IP address of the Access Point(192.168.0.1) to ssh into it. Log in with AP credentials

Username: super
password: sp-admin

3. After successful login, execute the below commands:

rkscli: set director ip 1.1.1.1

** Please reboot for this change to take effect

OK

rkscli: reboot


After successful reboot of Access Point, now connect it back to the network.

Now Access Point will try to discover the ZD with IP address 1.1.1.1(which is not present) and hence would work in Standalone mode.
