    Hi!

    In Aruba Central I have configured 3 SSIDs. I know that if you have different clusters with same SSIDs, you should specify MDID number for each SSID (in fast roaming 802.11r settings), but if I have one cluster with multiple SSIDs, should I leave default value in MDID field which is 1 for all SSIDs.

    Also recently for one of the offices, which had one SSID and worked well, I have enabled 802.1r. The next day I got call that users can't connect or dropping off. In Central I saw very high authentication errors. I've disabled 802.1r and after that it worked just fine.

    Thanks!

    Quite a few clients, depending on their driver level, have problems with 802.11r.

    IMHO I would only enable 802.11r if I had mostly Apple clients, because many of those do not support OKC.  The majority of non-apple clients support OKC and that works fine and doesn't need to be configured.
