AP containment

Unanswered Question
Dec 5th, 2007

I received the following alarm in WCS:

An Alert of Category AP is generated with severity 1 by Radio REY_1242AP_LWAP08/1 .

The message of the alert is AP '00:19:a9:7b:17:70' with protocol '802.11a' on Controller '' is contained as a Rogue preventing service..

I am assuming someone is containing my A radio on my AP. How can I tell if it is still being contained and go about correcting this issue? I am assuming this is being done by a hospital that is close by.

I have this problem too.

This is more like a cosmetic issue. This can be safely ignored. There are 2 scenarios this can happen 1) AP sees more than 24 neighbors. Neighbor list size is 24, so any other ones will be reported as rogues. 2) AP1 can hear client communicating to AP2, but AP2 can't be heard (therefore can't be validated as a neighbor). Upgrading WLC seems to fix the issue.
