Firmware - Master controller and Local Controller

Dear all,

 

I'm currently busy with the installation of a new site for a local office.

 

The new controllers have firmware version:

Model: Aruba7005
Version: 6.4.4.12

 

Master Controller:

Model: Aruba3200
Version: 6.4.2.12

 

Is this going to be a problem?

 

Kind regards,

Niels

Re: Firmware - Master controller and Local Controller

You should make every effort to make sure both controllers in a master/local relationship are the same.  It would be bad to troubleshoot something for hours, just to realize mixed firmware could be the issue.  It would take less time to upgrade it...

 

We do not specifically test different versions of local/masters regularly.  If you opened a TAC case with a problem concerning this, upgrading is probably the first thing they would ask you to do.
