Controller / RAPS and KRACK

In light of the new KRACK vulnerability regarding WPA2, with the new updates for mobility controllers that address this issue, will updating my controllers then update my RAPs out in the field or will manual updates need to be done?

Thanks!

Re: Controller / RAPS and KRACK

Remote APs in the field should get their update from the controller, so your outage schedule should account for that. Once upgraded, the RAPs will be at the same version as the controller and the vulnerability will be patched. 

 

So just upgrade your controller, and any RAPs will upgrade when the controller reboots and then they will reboot again.
