Hi All,

I often see this message from WCS (v6).


AP 'LAP01' is being contained. This is due to rogue device spoofing AP 'LAP01' BSSID or targetting AP 'LAP01' BSSID. - Controller Name: WLC1


Where LAP01 is actaully an AP associated with WLC1. Why would the WLC try and contain one of its own AP's?

Or am i reading the message incorrectly?

Seems to happen on a number of WLC's and seemingly random AP's.

RLDP is disabled and the auto contain options are disabled.

Any ideas?

Are all of your WLCs in the same Mobility Group?

Sometimes the best way to troubleshoot these cryptic messages is to just open a TAC case and ask.
