We recently purchased a couple of R600 APs to add to a large number we have already that we manage with a Zonedirector 3000, sadly these new units are the "unleashed" R600 units and they won't let me access the settings so I can tell it to connect to a controller. How do you connect an unleashed R600 to a Zonedirector? We have the licenses to do so, and I can't see any official response from Ruckus. The only other answer I can see is to downgrade the firmware which surely isn't the only option? Why can't they give these units a new model number or something.
The only reason is because the SKU number changes which is tied to providing the correct support for the unleashed product. There is a firmware that you can download to turn the R600 back to a standalone AP which you can then managed it with your zone directory so it is not technically a downgrade. The unleashed firmware is special to the unleashed product as it can allow any unleashed AP to be the zone director minus some features. I think the KB to convert the unleashed AP back to a standalone is KBA-5193.
