Downgrade an AP without downgrading ZD1200?

Is there a way to downgrade individual APs? I tried uploading an older firmware in the "AP Patches" section and that did not do anything but tell me the 10.2 image was "invalid".

We're trying to sort out some compatibility issues and really need to push a few APs back for testing, is this possible?

Hi Bway,

Do you want to downgrade firmware of some APs while others will stay on the ZDs firmware?

If yes, it is not possible. ZD managed APs will always stay on the same version as ZD.

Multi firmware support is only available in SmartZone controllers.

Thanks, good to know. If it's possible, I'd also consider rolling back the ZD, but am a bit nervous about that without physical access.

We're on build 214, which is awful with OS-X/iOS. We have another site on an old version ( build 210) and the same clients work fine at that location so as a stopgap we'd like to try a rollback while we flail around with support.

Our testing of every 10.3 or 10.4 release has been very, very disappointing. The version at your other site,, is a good one. We keep all of our clients on or lower.
