3.3.1 upgrade to 3.4.2.6 any issues ?

Hi we have an upgrade this weekend to two 6000 chassis's we are upgrading from 3.3.1 to 3.4.2.6 to resolve a couple of issues in the 3.3.1 code
Are there any issues in upgrading would we need to go to 3.3.2 first ?

No issues, you can go direct from 3.3.x to 3.4.2.6.

Cp issues yes !!

Hi we did the Upgrade and everyrhing looked good except when the custumer tried his guest network, the captive Portal just refused to work even when we created a new guest and captive portal profile the portal refused to work we could see the user getting the initial guest logon role but the CP re-direct did not work and the client was connected straight to the internet.

We then upgraded down to 3.4.2.1 and then up to 3.4.3 still no CP finally after must frustration we went down to 3.3.1.31 and it was fine.
attached the config files for 3.3.1 and 3.4.2

Captive Portal

Captive portal depends on a number of factors, like the user being placed into the correct role and being able to resolve DNS. Is the user being placed into a role that has the "captive portal" acl? Does that role have a captive portal profile? Can the user resolve dns?

Captive Portal

Nothing changed in the configs all we did was upgrade the image from 3.3.1.21 to 3.4.2 the captive portal was working fine before the upgrade.
we can't find any differences in the profiles between the attached 3.3.1 file and the 3.4.2 file

The config

The config is only a template that describes how a controller is configured. While it should not behave any differently, the same configuration can perform differently under different circumstances. We need to know if the client can get a dhcp address and resolve a DNS address, and the config will not tell us that.

Captive Portal

Hi Colin

The client does get an IP address and resolve DNS and go out onto the internet

Role

Okay, when the client just simply associates, what role does the client get into. Please type "show user" to see what role the client gets into, and then type "show rights " so we can see what ACLS are being applied to the client.
