How To Troubleshoot Device Onboarding Issues Using Local Debug Page

           The Local Debug page can be accessed using the IP Address of any device of the Site. Make sure that the AP is reachable from the device from which we are trying to take the access. This page provides data that gives an overall status of the AP for the following categories:

Device Information:

AP Model & Firmware version

Connectivity:

Onboarding status & CloudConnect status

Network Information:

The IP address, Netmask, default gateway & DNS

Time:

Current Time & NTP log

        This process is used when a device is configured in Portal Manager, Cloudconnect is used to report the state of the AP and transfer different stats. Cloud connect only has the following state:

  • Connected: When Cloudconnect is connected and there’s is no Cloudconnect message, The AP will be up and running in the Site
  • Error: When Cloudconnect is in error, the device will be reported as down in the Site, in this case having the Cloudconnect HTTP code and the Cloudconnect HTTP message could give information about the connectivity failure. Rebooting the AP could fix the issue, all the process will be restarted but before restarting the AP we recommend to verify if a Cloudconnect message is displayed.
