Reason 255

Hey Everybody,
I was wondering if anyone knew what "Reason 255" was in the Aruba logs. I am just seeing it a lot more and wanted to know if anyone could point me in the right direction, I've searched around on the Googles and no dice yet. I won't even try to dig into the "unspecified failure" entry! Thanks so much!

Re: Reason 255

Can you post the exact error message. I suspect Aruba uses 255 in more than one scenario.

Re: Reason 255

That message is the controller reporting that a client send a deauth to the AP and did not give a reason. It is fairly normal and shouldn't be an issue unless this client didn't roam to another AP just before this deauth OR didn't disconnect prior (shut down, hibernate, sleep or turn off their NIC).
