I've 2 WLC managed by WCS that every night saves the configurations of both the WLCs, recently I replaced one of the two WLC with a new one (RMA Replacement)and I've uploaded the saved configuration via GUI using a TFTP server to the new WLC.The problem is that the uploaded configuration has lost all the configured security parameters(WPA, Radius servers etc.)so I had to configure them again manually.

The version of the WLCs is the 5.2 and the configuration of the WCS is the 5.2 too.

Thanks in advance.

What was the version of code on the newly replace controller before you pushed the image to it?

The steps that I've performed are the following:

* update of the new WLC to the 5.2 version (same of the primary WLC)

* download to the controller of the previously saved configuration

* All the parameters are ok but the security, in fact I've lost the Radius servers, WPA keys and all the SSID's are in broadcast.

So i had to fix all the missing parameters manually.
