Hello need some help.
I have a Master and Local controller. Which initally had AP's split equally 50/50.
However due to circumstances I needed to send all AP's that had been connected on the Local to the Master.
So re-provisioned them to use the Master IP address.
Since doing so all the AP's that had been on the Local controller still have the "Switch IP" as the Local IP address and they all have the flags ID. Although the flags seem to come and go depedning on how often I refresh the page......
Basically those AP's that had been on the Local AP do not allow clients to connect.
Hi Thank you for the quick response.
There was no messages form "show profile-errors" see below-
Invalid Profiles ---------------- Profile Error ------- -----
show log system all | inc <ap MAC>
Jul 3 08:50:48 :311004: <WARN> |AP Burton-1stFlr-24:de:c6:c4:d4:firstname.lastname@example.org sapd| Missed 8 heartbeats; rebootstrapping
Which suggests it keeps loosing sight on the Master controller?!!
If the AP's are losing heartbeat to the controller.... Why does it only effect those AP's that had been configured with the Local as the primary LMS?
All AP's now have the Master LMS profile and have been reprovisioned.
Q: How are AP's discovering controller?
A: Via IP address manually set when initially configured by console. E.g. Some AP's with Master IP, then some with Local IP.
Since then I tried re-provisioning to set them all to the Master conrtollers IP address.
Q: Do you have enough licenses? A: 145 License on each controller. 76 AP's deployed in totoal.
Q: How is AP system profile configured? VRRP? A: VRRP is not used. We have a Primary and a Backup LMS specified
e.g. Master AP with Primary IP as Master and backup as Local. Local AP had Primary IP as Local and Master as backup.
The Master has a AP-profile and the Local a different one.
So im at the point now where I want all APs to use the Mater AP proflile and the Master Switch. Which I set on re-provisioning.
I've not had much time on this and being thrown in at the deep end....
Thank you for your help.
Each has a different AP system Profile.
So When assigned to the Master or Local controller the appropriate AP has the correct controller as its primary/backup LMS.
Q: Do you have other APs that are the IP segment join to the master controller with no issues?
We only have two controllers and the IP's are static and not going to change so it was our preference to use static IP.
Thankyou for your help.
Just wanted to update this post with a solution.
To recap..... We have two controllers
North-(Local (Backup)) & South-(Master)
We originally configured (via console) our AP's according to which controller was the closest e.g.
setenv ipaddr 10.3.1.1 10.2.1.1 setenv netmask 255.255.0.0 255.255.0.0 setenv gatewayip 10.3.0.1 10.2.0.1 setenv serverip 192.168.1.10 192.168.0.10 setenv master 192.168.1.10 192.168.0.10
Everything was working until.....
We then needed to change (re-provision) all Northern AP's to use the Southern controller.
Doing this via the GUI lead to the Northern AP's constatnly flapping between both controllers and showing/flapping the flags D (Dirty) & I (inactive).
Disbale ADP on the Northern-(Local) controller.
Although configured manually we found that ADP was not helping our setup.
This fixed the majority of re-provisioned AP's
Next for those stuborn AP's that still kept falpping. We re-re-provisioned with a new IP in the same range.
E.g for an AP that had IP 10.3.1.1 we moved it to 10.3.1.10.
All AP's are now using the Southern-(Master) controller.
