We have several 4404 controllers that each support 100 antennas.
When I follow the documentation for using multiple ap-manager interfaces (our controllers have 2 fibers to one switch and 2 to another one) it says that I have to create 3 additional ap-manager interfaces so that I can support 100 antennas.
So I did it.
The first problem I ran into is that I cannot assign backup ports to my ap-manager interfaces.
I get the following error:
"Backup Port cannot be configured for the ap-manager interface."
Is it because they are all on the same VLAN? So you cannot have two interfaces with the same vlan-tag on one physical port?
But then again in the documentation it says thatall the ap-managers should be on the same vlan/subnet.
Will it be possible in the future to have a tertiary and quadriary port assignment for dynamic interfaces? Because now when two fibers break I have the chance to loose an entire SSID.
