We are starting to convert over to Lightweight and we have successfully converted 10 AP's over to Lightweight mode.
We are using WCS to manage multiple controllers in multiple 6509's.
The lightweight AP's appear to be working fine, however after rebooting the AP's some of them failed to reassociate with the controller. After messing around, I got them going again, but my question is this:
Why do only 4 of my AP's show up with valid certificates in the AP authorization list of the WCS (and hence the controllers). The other 6 AP's do not show up anywhere in the authorization list, however they are working fine and they do show up in all other WCS / Controller screens as being associated to the controllers. I have a variety of different AP models, some with SSC and some with MIC certificates, and it doesn't seem to matter (some of AP's not listed in the authorization list have SSC's and others have MIC's.
Can anyone explain why these don't need to be in the authorization list to work? I'm just afraid that they are going to detach and not reattach.
If it is a SSC based AP, you need to manually add the AP to the authorization list. If it is a MIC, it is not needed though.
These documents should clearly explain yu what needs to be done
