TitleAP6511/AP6521/AP6532/AP621/AP650 Unable to Access GUI
Question
Why am I unable to access GUI on AP6511 / AP6521 / AP6532 / AP621 / AP650 when it is adopted by controller?
Environment
  • WiNG 5.4.1 and above
  • AP6511
  • AP6521
  • AP6532
  • AP621
  • AP650
Answer
If you are unable to access GUI on AP6532 or AP650, you are probably using the AP LEAN image.
You can find more details in Why AP650 or AP6532 lost WebGUI after upgrade?

If you are using AP6511, AP6521, AP621, the GUI is disabled when it is adopted by controller.
This is to make more memory available for other core functions for these low memory APs. 
It is assumed that when an AP is adopted to a controller, the controller's GUI will be used for its configuration.

To re-enable GUI on these APs, use the 'memory-profile' parameter.
Note that when an adopted AP (6521, 6511) is separated from a controller to operate in standalone mode, the GUI will remain disabled due to this feature, unless the above command is used.

If APs are already separated from the controller,
a) Connect to AP CLI
b) Set memory profile to ‘standalone’ under device override or profile context.

ap6521-42D150#self
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
ap6521-42D150(config-device-FC-0A-81-42-D1-50)#memory-profile standalone
Note: memory-profile change will take effect after device reboot
ap6521-42D150(config-device-FC-0A-81-42-D1-50)#com wr

If APs are currently adopted to controller then memory profile configuration change can be applied from controller CLI.
a) Connect to Controller CLI.
b) Set memory profile to ‘standalone’ under AP profile context.

rfs7000-17E1D4#conf
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
rfs7000-17E1D4(config)#profile ap6521 default-ap6521
rfs7000-17E1D4(config-profile-default-ap6521)#memory-profile standalone
Note: memory-profile change will take effect after device reboot
rfs7000-17E1D4(config-profile-default-ap6521)#com wr

Note : Memory-profile changes will take effect after device reboot.
 
Additional notes
Make sure that https server has been enabled under the management policy of the AP.
This setting is enabled by default.
