Re: client roaming and ssid connection issue

First issue: you'll need to setup IP mobility

Second issue: need more information.

Third issue: not all APs will have the same power levels.

Re: client roaming and ssid connection issue



Is it a single Aruba controller that terminates the both the access points?  If so, you need to enable "VLAN" mobility on both Virtual APs so that devices will retain the same VLAN.


If it is a different controller, the instructions above should have worked.
