Suggestions Welcome. It’s about a meshed network, and the migration to vSCG Controller Version 3.1.1.0.450.  So far I've upgraded the software on the ZD1100 to the latest one I could find.  9.10.1.0.59 . On putty to the  AP’s ( ZF7982 ) The commands are not recognised. I started at the last one in the hop, thinking I could migrate from that point.  The only command that sort of works is the ( set director ip <vscg> } But nothing happens. The site has been tested with other stand alone ZF7982 AP's, to the controller. I really do not want to pull everything down i.e rebuild.

From KBA-3377: How to update ZD mode AP firmware to support vSCG using LWAPP2SCG


Use the following steps to have the vSCG automatically upgrade your ZD-mode AP to a vSCG-mode AP.


Step 1: Preparing the vSCG to accept and convert ZD mode AP.
1. SSH into your vSCG

 

2. Get into the configuration context and enter the LWAPP2SCG config mode.

 


Sid-3rd-vSCG# config
Sid-3rd-vSCG(config)# lwapp2scg
 


3. Set the Policy to allow the vSCG to upgrade all AP, or only upgrade specific AP by mac.


Sid-3rd-vSCG(config-lwapp2scg)# policy accept-all
 
4. Exit the config context and save the change.

 
Sid-3rd-vSCG(config-lwapp2scg)# end
Do you want to update this context configuration (or input 'no' to cancel)? [yes/no] yes
 
Sid-3rd-vSCG#


Step 2: Directing your ZD-mode AP to connect to the vSCG's Control IP.
1. SSH into the AP

2. Issue the same "set director ip", but point it to the vSCG's Control IP.


    rkscli: set director ip 10.9.101.5

3. reboot the AP and it will connect to the vSCG and upgrade it's firmware.


    rkscli: reboot


Step 3: Direct your SCG-mode AP to your vSCG's Control IP.

1. Once the AP has finished upgrading and rebooting from (Step 2) SSH into the AP

2. Issue a "set scg ip" command to point it to the vSCG's Control IP. This
is because when the AP was converted from ZD-mode AP to vSCG-mode AP,
it took on the vSCG mode AP's Factory Default setting, meaning it doesn't know
the vSCG IP.


rkscli: set scg ip 10.9.101.5


NOTE 1: If the vSCG was deployed with only 1 Interface (recommended) then the Control, Management and Cluster IP are all the same.

NOTE 2: It is very important [required] to factory default the AP after every conversion process, form ZD to SCG or converting a SCG AP to ZD mode AP.

Michael, I have the same scenario. Pls see that Gerard (and me) have a meshed network, then after the mesh AP firmware upgrade, the AP will lost the config and connection with the mesh and then the controller.
How can we migrate a ZD Mesh AP to the vSCG?

I have been using the migrate-ap scripts which involves a script file that needs to be loaded on to the ZD prior to migration.

See link below for my own documented process:

ZD to SCG scripts including MESH AP's:

Good Luck

I think its like 9.6 or something on the ZD side and whatever on the SCG as the temp image is 1.1

Also note the box link to the ZD to SCG document is changed to the following as the old link didn't work to obtain the files:

ZD to SCG Migration:

Ive done this 10 times now and it all goes smooth as long as you dont go outside of process

ok, I have vSZ 3.2.0.0.790, and there is not the Zone option "Create new form ZD backup". Then, I think that the migration are not possible.

No, not apear be a problem of the "v" versions, because this option apear in the vSZ 3.1.1.0.476. Some body knows why Ruckus remove this option?

Product Marketing explains that the file structures between ZD and SZ are too different to allow interpretation of ZD config into SZ format any longer.
