This does not match with what I understood you were trying to do, i.e.,
moving between two different APs and neither does this do just the
select_network command. Disconnect command is requesting wpa_supplicant
to disconnect from all networks, you will need to use reassociate to get
it connected again. If that does not work, please send a debug log that
continues further after the wpa_cli command.

-t command line option in wpa_supplicant should add the timestamp
correctly without any modification needed for this..

This should not be needed since ap_scan=2 was already configured in step

Since you used disconnect in step 5, this should be replaced with
reassociate command. select_network can be used to move between two
networks when disconnect command is not used.
