Aruba 2400 Wireless AP issues

I have few issues going on with an old site having Aruba 2400.

1. In network summary page , I see 18 AP is DOWN but they ping fine and have a special network address scope. How can I turn it UP and active. I tried rebooting Master & Local controllers twice.

2. There are three SSID created and I need to take one of the AP in another SSID group. Is it possible ?

3. I have OS in my mobility controller and looking forward to upgrade the OS. Any other source besides Aruba Accounts ?

4. If I have MAC address of the AP through InnSIDDER and I need to know the IP address of one of the AP. I cannot find any search option to search MAC address.

#1: Have you done any changes since they turned down?
Since they have been connected before - you either deployed some firewall rules between AP-scope and Controller or you changed controllers IP-addresses.
You say you have a master and a local controller. Are they at the same Site/Subnet?
Have you configured LMS-IP in AP System Profile?
in CLI - do a show ap system-profile to see what profiles you have.
Then do a show ap system-profile PROFILE-NAME to see lms-ip for profile. If this is blank, or it shows something other than local controllers IP - change it. Or, if you only have default - create a new one for the site with the local controller - and add the correct LMS-IP and assign it to the AP GROUP you have.

#2. yes - you can have several AP-GROUPs - just reprovision the AP you need to change in to the new group

#3. The 2400 controller cannot be upgraded to anymore than --- should be rather straight forward, been a while since I've upgraded in the 5-series

#4. Think you should be able to do this in CLI
show ap database | include MAC-ADDRESS (or some part of the mac-address)
