Here is a quick outline of the issues. We had 3 floors in a building and using a pair of 3200 controllers in VRRP we were able to get full coverage of the office. We recently expanded to 3 more floors, and installed another set of 3200s in the same VLAN. It shares the same 3 VLANs, Guest, MGMT, and Employee. The employee network is working fine as when the user moves between floors the OS is able to reauthenticate via EAP-TLS and the user does not notice.
Or issue is that since the captive portal is configured for the Guest network, a user on this network will have their connections dropped and be foreced to re-authenticate to the network.
Is there any way to share network authentication state between controllers to allow for a device to roam between the two without having to re-authenticate? We are using Amigopod for our captive portal, but do not have RFC3576 features enabled.
We also have airwave, but are only running in Monitor mode.

This would work across different controllers

U may also consider doing L2 Tunnel between two working masters.
(The user DB is internel on each master ..thats why your clients need to re-auth when passing from controller to controller)
How to? More info
