Tunneled node: "complete" on controller, "in-progress" on MAS

Hi All, trying to set up tunneled node between an S1500 MAS and a 7030 controller over the internet. The tunnel shows complete on the 7030, but in progress on the switch. My first thought was firewall problems, so I opened up the firewall between those IPs, with no change. Any suggestions on what to try next? Config and status follow:

Re: Tunneled node: "complete" on controller, "in-progress" on MAS

Make sure you have enough licenses on the controller.

Tunneled node takes up 1 AP license per Switch / Stack of switches


Also your tunneled node config on the controller should be set to "tunneled-node-address"

Do you see PAPI (UDP 8211), GRE and ICMP passing between the two IP addresses on the firewall?


This may occur when the Mobility Access Switch is sourcing the GRE tunnel from the wrong IP interface and there is asymmetrical routing in the network. Make sure to use the 'controller-ip' command under 'ip-profile' to specifically chose the interface the Mobility Access Switch should be using to source it's traffic.
