Backup LMS ip not reflected in "show ap database" for mesh node APs

  • 1.  Backup LMS ip not reflected in "show ap database" for mesh node APs

    Posted Mar 04, 2017 08:02 AM

    My setup is fairly simple. The Ap groups are mapped with "default"  AP system profile and in the "default" AP system profile have defined the primary and backup LMS IPs.

    However when I issue "show ap database" I do not see the Standby IP reflected for the back up LMS configured in the AP system profiles for the Mesh node APs(Mesh Portals and Mesh points).

    What should I do to make sure the "standby IP" is reflected with "backup LMS IP" for the Mesh node IPs?

    Hi Adnan,

     

    The High Availability Fast Failover feature supports APs in campus mode using tunnel, decrypt-tunnel, or bridge forwarding modes. This feature is not supported on remote APs and mesh APs in any mode.

     

    This is part of 6.4/6.5 UG as well.

    Hi Nitesh,

     

    Thank you for the prompt response.

     

    Apart from the high availability feature: Is it expected of the Master controller to reflect the radio summary/Network summary of All the APs (normal and Mesh node APs) that are up even on the  Local controller?

     

    Or the Master will no reflect the radio/Network summary of Mesh node and Remote APs?

    Hi Adnan,

     

    We can view them from Master controller's Web UI

     

    Web UI-->Monitoring-->Network

     

    It allows you to view All AP's,RAP's Mesh nodes etc

    Hi Nitesh,

     

    Thanks again for the prompt response.

     

    Today I ran into an issue that the Master stop reflecting the statuses of Mesh node APs. Is there a bug in 6.5.0.2?
