Using a 7210 controller with a combination of 205H, 215 and 225 APs and all seems to be ok since clients are connecting as they should be.
However, I've noticed that in the 7210 Configuration / Wireless / AP Installation section that some of my APs do not have any FLAGS whereas several are in Standby Mode. They still appear to be functioning ok though.
I've checked my configs and these APs are configured like the ones that do not have any flags.
Any ideas why some APs are in Standby Mode?
Thanks in advance for the info and Happy New Year to all Airheads.

I hope you are refering to the below flag, which refers to the client as Standby mode AP, when you have a HA setup.

By the way:
Is this a bug?:
(aruba-master) #show ap database local long flags s
No flag present
(aruba-master) #show ap database local long | include " 2s"

No I don´t. I use LACP (two wires on same AP) and just one controller (master) without backup controller....
Sorry... just asking about the AP is not listed with similar flag (lowercase) :) and this just because I search the "s flag"... ;-)
Any way: Do i found another bug? :-)
