XL Access Controller Module not connecting


XL Access Controller Module not connecting

I've recently installed an XL Access Controller module in one of my 5300 switches.

Module has been configured with an IP address and pointed to my HP 740 Access Control Manager with the correct shared secret.

However the ACM never connects to the 740.

In the log on the 740 I have the following messages from the ACM's IP address.

received CLI status change 6 from for session 2
process_incoming_cli_cmd sess=2
received CLI status change 7 from for session 2

Firmware on the switch is 10.55
Firmware on the 740 is

Any ideas is greatly appreciated.

The ping is getting through but XL module still has "NO connected" in status.
I've been advised to downgrade the system to firmware which is more stabile than
