Can APs/VAPs take different config in failover?

    Hi,

     

    Just wondering if it is possible when APs fall over to their bk-lms-ip that they take slightly different configuration?

     

    I'm thinking that when the local controller is up, the VAPs are tunnelled and when they failover to a remote controller the VAPs are then bridged?

     

    I don't think this is possible, but would be great if it was.

     

    Thanks

    you have to have the same AP Group Name in both controllers but with different configuration in each for the mode of operation.

     

    I belive this is the way to do it, if the AP lose the configuration from the first controller

    Unfortunately that means two separate systems and we need to have cpsec enabled.
