3200 controller OS update

Hello all!

 

My first time posting here. I would like to know if it worth/possible to upgrade my 3200 Controller from 6.1.3.9 to the latest 6.3.1.8?

If so, where can I find the procedure for doing so?

Also, having problems making an AP-105 into a Campus AP. I will make another thread for this one.

 

Thanks

You would need to purchase the extra memory kit to upgrade the controller before going to 6.3

Would I gain much from upgrading?

There are many new features, but some may not be available with the legacy 3200 controllers.

Re: 3200 controller OS update

Don't make the leap from 6.1 to 6.3 in one go if its a production network and you need a seamless upgrade. I've seen some issues with the config once upgraded, so I'd recommend 6.1 > 6.2 > 6.3.

Ok, good idea... but not sure if I realy need to upgrade yet.

I am still having issues with my Windows 7 users when they are forced to change their password, it will not let them do it through wifi!

I might be missing something else.

Thats not a wireless issue that would be fixed by controller code. It takes some changes on your RADIUS server.

Yeah, I need to get intimate with my RADIUS server.

I read somewhere that I have to make one on a 2008 or newer server.

Right now, I have a 2003 server which is probably why I'm having these problems.

Tman,

 

It should work on Windows 2003 server as well.
