Flash down an h510 unleashed to standalone

I just bought 10 h510 Accesspoints, for an on-site deployment, I have already an zonedirector 100 with 60 Ap, and this new ones where meant to improve the coverage of moly wlan.

Something funny happened, 8 of the came with the 110.0.0.663 firmware, and 2 came with the unleashed firmware 200.7.2.339

I can’t adopt those 2 Ap to my existing controller...

I want to know the steps so I can flash down these Ap with the 110.0 firmware.

I create a case in ruckus support but they told me that the only way they would help me with the info I’d buy buying a service contract. It’s absurd the Ap are brand new...

Please if somebody know how to do it

Hi Daniel,

Sorry to hear about your issue. Don't worry we'll get you squared away.

You can download the firmware from support.ruckuswireless.com. All you have to do is register for a free account. 

Now, I went ahead and got the firmware for you this time:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/ecb8lawhj7441e7/H510_110.0.0.0.663.bl7?dl=0

1. Login into your WAP
2. Go to upgrade Firmware section
3. Do local update from a file

This should do the trick.


Cheers,
Alex

Hi Alex Thanks for the reply.... is directly the downgrade... I don't have to make a step before for example to a another firmware version... and the to the 110.0?  

I can go directly from 200.7 to 110.0

Daniel,

You can downgrade directly to any standalone firmware.

It should be very simple to switch from Unleashed to standalone firmware. Just download the 110.0 firmware, log into the Unleashed web interface and go to Administration > Upgrade. Select Local Upgrade and then choose the standalone 110.0 firmware. 

There is no check in the Unleashed upgrade page to prevent upgrading (or downgrading) to a standalone AP image. 

Once it has the standalone image, connect it to your ZD network. Your ZD will try to upgrade it again to a ZD image when it comes up and discovers the ZD. If auto approval is off, approve the new AP from the ZD web interface.

Sorry - copied the wrong one:

000005193 - Converting Ruckus Unleashed AP to Standalone AP
06 Mar 2017


To revert an Unleashed AP to ZF Standalone mode, we have to do a hard reset on the AP and downgrade the ... ZoneFlex base image version for that model of Access Point, and proceed to upgrade.
