As of the time of posting, UniFi does not support newer versions of the Java runtime. To improve the startup speed of the UniFi controller software on our Raspberry Pi, we need to install rng-tools. We will utilize this package to ensure the Raspberry Pi has enough entropy for the random number generation that the UniFi software uses.
Unifi Port 8080 Is Used By Other Programs Startup Failed Version
I have a single AP, with potential plans to add another as I have 2 spares. They are version 18.104.22.1680 which I'm guessing is probably too old. When I try to adopt the AP, it just eventually goes to 'Disconnected'. At one point it was also going to 'failed'. I went on it and did 'syswrapper.sh restore-default'.
How do I go about making this work again? I'm guessing I probably have to manually update the firmware? Also just to confirm, from the AP I can telnet into port 8443 and 8080 of the controller, so I know the tcp connectivity is ok. I can also telnet to port 22 of the AP from the controller host.
Some interesting stuff going on in the logs (on the AP itself). I tried to force the inform url to change, but it's like if it's resolving it wrong.
rohan.loc is 10.1.1.5 but at one point it's trying to go to http://unifi:8080/inform but then it tries to go to http://10.1.1.14:8080/infom. I can't recall what .14 is but think that's the old server. I did a cleanup in my DNS a while back so the reverse for it no longer works, otherwise I could know for sure.
I also tried setting to port 8080, as I think that's actually the proper port for the inform protocol. This is going beyond what any documentation really talks about so kind of grasping at straws.
Oh and to clarify the hostname resolves OK on ap. I just got home from night shift expecting my WiFi to be down but its still working so I think the restore command did not fully restore to factory. I'll play with it more after sleep but open to suggestions.
