Hi All,

    I've got a couple of r720 unleashed to run in our small office. They are connected to a Brocade ICX6450-48p
I've ready probably everything about this topic before make my own post, and I'm sure I'm missing something, but I'm really out of ideas :-/
LLDP is enabled on both, AP and Switch, power-over-mdi is advertised by the switch, but yet no luck...the APs are stuck on 802.3af mode

from the switch:

Ok, I've got to the bottom of this issue!

Downgraded from Unleashed to Standalone and ran this on CLI:

set power-mode AT 

worked like a charm! Now the AP shows 802.3at as operation mode
The downside is that I've lost any controller feature...is this a limitation of the unleashed firmware? Looks to me that the CLI on unleashed is limited...or at least there's no way to force the power operation mode :-/
