Master-Local Configuration change reboots locals?

Good day everyone,

We have a customer with a Master-Local setup.

 

We made a configuration change on the Master and its backup and it pushed the change down to the locals as expected but it also rebooted all of the locals?

 

I cannot find any documentation that explains this behavior? Is that normal?

Shouldn't the change just be through the IPSEC tunnel and update the required config?

 

AOS: 6.1.3.0

Master 3600

Locals: 620

For the Change to be received through IPSEC that for sure have happened. I am not sure if this is the usual behaviour.

 

But I want to ask did you change any thing on AP groups which already have APs associated with and terminated on the local controller ? it can be the normal case or it can be something on the configuration caused the locals to reboot.

 

did the master rebooted also ?

The change was done to a netdestination which holds walled garden entries.

I just added 2 more entries.

 

Master did not reboot.

That is NOT supposed to happen.  Are you sure the controllers rebooted, or the access points rebooted?  What version of Aruba Code is this?

Confirmed locals rebooted by typing "show version" and we have around 99 locals, i didn't check them all but we have a dashboard that monitors all the APs through querying SNMP on all the locals and all of the APs went offline.



Reboot Cause: Datapath timeout.


 

I know that 6.1.3.2 has over 100 bug fixes, maybe it is time to upgrade to 6.1.3.4???

Re: Master-Local Configuration change reboots locals?

To be honest I do not know, I even did not go for the release note to see what fixes it has. But I recommed that you usually contact ARUBA TAC and ask for the most stable version because they are the ones who face and receive all the complains mostly "Bugs". I was informed that 6.1.3.3 is stable and goes fine. But you can use 6.1.3.4 for sure no issue. thats all.

Re: Master-Local Configuration change reboots locals?

Thank you Abi.

 

I am still trying to find information or a configuration setting that would reboot all of my locals after I make a config change to the master.

 

I assume that if I reboot the master, the locals will reboot as well since the IPSEC tunnel is broken?

We are providing an external captive portal, therefore if the master goes down, the locals do not work.

Which is not the way it should be since the locals in theory should continue to function
