HP AP MSM410

I have 20 SP MSM410.  I have a MSM760 Controller.  I have four so far that won't accept the controller.  Here's the message:
"The AP has been authorized by the service controller. However, the AP has not yet selected the controller to function as its service controller."

They are all in the same subnet of 255.255.252.0, VLAN24 172.16.X.X

I'm getting this error message on the controller:
"Sep 3 20:06:22        warning        iprulesmgr        Station Table Entry (id='1',ip-address='172.16.103.254',mac-address='00:24:A8:71:44:00',virtual-ap-index='1') exists with the IP address claimed by the new station (mac-address='00:24:A8:76:CA:00'), for security reason we're terminating both station access."

So what I'm thinking here is that the AP isn't getting the correct IP from the DHCP server.  But it's just these four so far.  

Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated .

Hello,

My first reaction to your question is that there is some device that is using the same IP on the network causing the problem. Probably one which has a manually specified IP address which is '172.16.103.254' - which is also in the DHCP scope.

Try pinging 172.16.103.254 when your new device is turned off and seeing if you get a response. If you do, you will have to identify the device and reconfigure it to use DHCP.

What seems to be the issue is that the DHCP server is issuing the next "available" IP which is already in use causing the devices to not be able to connect to the network. You can also try to change the scope of the DHCP server to exclude 172.16.103.254 if that is simpler for you.

Cheers.

RB.

My DHCP scoop is 100.10-103.250. The default gateway is 03.254.

So it's all HP procurve equipment.  The port is untagged for the vlan

Ok.  Did a lot of digging and it turns out the DHCP server wasn't dishing out the correct IP's.  After further investigation into the issue, when installing the AP's we didn't do anything to the ports until after we plugged them in. So it was just in the normal data VLan and the DHCP server wouldn't give it the correct address out of the new VLan that I created for the AP management.  Has anyone seen this with 2008R2?
