Controller Based WLANs

Why the controller type is showing as standby though the master controller flash is uploaded on the controller.

Aruba Employee

Environment : Master-Standby and Local  controllers

 

The type will show as "standby" though the master controller flash is uploaded on the new controller.

The VRRP state will goes to Backup state hence the controller type shows as standby.

By making the vlan 444 active and by allowing the vlan 444 on the uplink port of the A7240 controller made the VRRP state to Master and the type shows as Master in show switches.
