Which upgrade modes does an AP support

24

Currently, an AP can be upgraded using the AC, FTP, or SFTP.

- AC loading: The target version file of the AP is saved on the AC. During loading, the AC sends the target version file to the AP using CAPWAP.

- FTP loading: The target version file of the AP is saved on the FTP server. During loading, the AP logs in to the FTP server and obtains the target version file.

- SFTP loading: The target version file of the AP is saved on the SFTP server. During loading, the AP logs in to the SFTP server and obtains the target version file.

What are the differences between AP restart modes and what are their application scenarios
You can restart an AP in the following ways: run the reset command on the AC, log in to the AP and restart it, hold down the RESET button on the AP, and power off and on the AP. The differences and application scenarios of these restart modes are as follows: - Run the reset command on the AC: Run the ap-reset { all | id ap-id | ap-type { type ap-type | type-id type-id } } command in the WLAN view to restart a specified AP or APs in batches. This command applies only to online APs. - Log in to the AP and restart it: Log in to the AP and run the reboot command in the user view to restart the AP. You can restart an AP using this method only after you log in to the AP using Telnet or through the console port. This method is used to restart APs that are not online on the AC. You can connect a PC to the wired interface of the AP and log in to the AP using Telnet. - Hold down the RESET button on the AP: Using this method, you can restart an AP without the need to get the AP online or log in to the AP. - Power off and on the AP: If the AP uses PoE power supply, run the undo poe enable and poe enable commands in the interface view of the power sourcing equipment (PSE) to restart the AP.
