IAP Cluster duplicating SSIDs

I have built an IAP network (had to redo the configuration for the client several times). For some reason, the SSIDs are duplicating and the duplicate SSID (One has caps characters the other doesnt) does not show in the IAP configuration when downloaded. 

 

Any ideas?

 On the commandline of the IAP, type "show ap bss-table" to ensure that the WLAN being broadcast is coming from that IAP...

Re: IAP Cluster duplicating SSIDs

That looks like 2 SSIDs on each band, which is what it is supposed to be.  Where are you seeing SSIDs being duplicated?

Seeing this in all of the wireless clients. For example attached is a screen shot from my Macbook.

These SSIDs are also showing in my IDS log (attached).

Re: IAP Cluster duplicating SSIDs

I notice the capital I vs i between the 2 set of SSID. It may be a typo in your new config or your client devices showing saved profiles. Otherwise maybe you have another infra AP or IAP nearby broadcasting the same SSID but with the I vs i in your SSID names.

Anything that is interferring, is not part of your current cluster.  You could have two different clusters running at the same time, each broadcasting a different version of the SSID.

Re: IAP Cluster duplicating SSIDs

Thanks for the prompt responses. I am going to continue searching to see if I have a duplicate IAP cluster, but I will also check on the saved profile option as well. I believe the solution will be a combination of the two. 

 

 

Thank you for just providing some outside suggestions!!
