I'm in the process of deploying an XGS2300 to replace our UTM. The UTM currently manages a number of AP and APX devices. We're ordering some new APXs to replace the APs once ithe XGS goes live.
The new APXs are held up due to the global supply chain conundrum. I won't get them in time. I was told by my sales rep that Sophos is dropping the licensing requirements to get the APs/APXs onto Sophos Central, which helps.
I cannot find any documentation/best-practice fiord how to migrate each Access Point to Central. Can someone (from Sophos or other) point me to a guide for how to do this?
I'm having very bad luck with our new APXs (three bricked/RMAs in a row) and want to be sure I don't brick any others. It's great Sophos is replacing them without balking, but I cannot afford to lose any more, even temporarily.
You should delete the access point from the UTM, wait some minutes and deploy them in Central with the serial number. It is helpful to disable the wireless protection from the UTM end first before deployment…

Thanks yes, that worked. I couldn't register it in Central until I removed it from the UTM (Kind of makes sense when you think about it).
