Hi

I have some problems with the lastest FW... they are no more universal for ZD controled AP, and standalone AP...

I need one who work whith all my models of Zone directors (actually 1100,1200 and 3K) ans also who let the AP working in standalone mode.

We deploy often for temporary using and sometime the timming is very short and the time to deploy sandalone FW is not aviable.

the AP we used are: ZF7982, 7372, 7782S, R700, T301n and t301s.

Thanks.

9.8.3.0.14 (MR3) is the build that you need as its supported by all your hardware:

While ZD 9.8.3 is the latest ZoneDirector firmware to support all those AP models, you can run Standalone image 100.1.0.0.432 where you need/want to.

7982, 7372, R700 use this:

7782s, T301n, T301s use this:
https://support.ruckuswireless.com/software/839-standalone-ap-software-100-1-0-0-432-outdoor-aps

APs running the Standalone 100.x firmware, can be directed to connect to a ZD with DHCP option 43, DNS 'director.localdomain', or manual AP CLI 'set director ip a.b.c.d (a.b.c.e)' commands.

Wow, I didn't know that was doable, and the ZD won't try to upgrade the firmware on the standalone AP's? What's the range of backwards compatibility for this? 100.1.0.0.432 seems a lot like 9.12.1 MR refresh — if ZD1100 can manage it, it seems to breathe some new life into it for managing AC AP's.

Yes, a ZD will re-flash any Standalone AP to whatever version the ZD is running (ie 9.8.3.0.14).
But..., APs being used as Standalone, ie. not on the same VLAN/subnet or at the same location, can run the 100.1.0.0.432 (similar to ZD 9.12.1 MR) features and bug fixes.
