I have bought an R720 from Ebay. I have tried many times to factory reset it using the button. Then the device successfully obtains IP address from DHCP, and I can log in using the default credentials (super/sp-admin) for one time (!), and all I see is a restricted UI showing me:
"Software Version: 22.214.171.124.3048" and also that "A Ruckus SCG is managing this device."
And I can't go anywhere from here to change the firmware to standalone or unleashed (which I wanted to do originally). Can anyone kindly suggest me where can I go from here?
You can also try following as it may fix the problem.
1- Factory reset the AP. 2- Make sure AP cannot reach internet after factory reset (use an isolated switch or POE injector to directly connect with AP). 3- Now flash the AP to stand alone version or Unleashed (depending upon your requirement). 4- Post upgrade, run below command.
set scg disable
5- Now connect the AP to network and try accessing it.
There is another way to block AP-Cloud controller communication, by blocking cloud server IPs on your local firewall/router/gateway.
That's something I was thinking of, but how could I get to flash an unleashed firmware to it? Since I can't even execute enable command from CLI, the GUI currently only allows "read-only" things and nothing else after a hardware reset...
SSH to AP and type below commands (Make sure that you are able to ping the FTP server's IP from AP CLI):
fw set control firmware_filename.Bl7 (This is the file name of the firmware in FTP server) fw set proto ftp fw set host xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (Where x.x.x.x is IP address of the FTP server) fw set user xxxx (Where xxx is user name of the FTP server) fw set password xxxx (Where xxx is password of the FTP server) fw up reboot
