My current zd1100 has failed after a power spike to my building, if I buy a new zd1200, will it work with my existing 7363, R500 and T 300 AP's using F/W 9.10.2.0.84 that's what was running on the old 1100 ?
I know there is newer F/W for the 1200 but need a quick fix to get things back up and running asap.

Many thanks

Hi Nick,

Sorry to hear about the demise of your ZD1100.

Looking at the release notes for ZoneDirector version 9.10.2.0.84 (link below - you will need access to the Ruckus Support Site) - this version supports the ZD1200 controller platform and the three types of APs you require.

I hope that helps,
Darrel.

Darrel Hi,
Many many thanks for your very prompt reply, especially as the reply is positive :-)
Final query, what firmware version would ship with a new ZD1200, (I can get ahead of the game and download the required F/W versions)

Best Wishes
Nick

Hi Nick,

Glad to be of help! :-)

I'm not sure what version is currently shipping from manufacturing unfortunately.  I suspect it will be a 10.x version, so it should be straightforward to downgrade.

When downgrading ZD FW to a version that hasn't previously run on the ZD it will perform a factory-reset, obviously this won't be an issue for you on a brand new device.

All the best,
Darrel.
