Anyone found that they can’t provision or adopt a Unifi AP through certain equipment? I’ve tried setting a little mikrotik as a plain switch with all ports bridged. The Unifi controller setup detects the AP when assigning passwords and the SSID but initially fails the provisioning then fails the adoption

The SSID does get set and otherwise works. Swapping in a switch and near instantly everything is fine.

Nope. Have huge numbers of sites running UniFi hardware with Mikrotik routers and never had a single issue.

 

How are you powering the APs?

As with Steve I have a modest number of that combo, no problems, so the way you describe it it's just a L2 adoption?

Even though you have a bridge, create a firewall rule at the top the does an all all, just to see if something is not fast pathing.

I have had quite a few not adopt as the firmware is too far out of date, you update the firmware by CLI or chrome ubnt discovery app and they adopt straight away.

 

Also some of the older access points are no longer supported and will not be seen or adopted on a controller with v6+ firmware.
