I am seeing the following error when i connected cisco Ap to the network using Wireless lan controller.I am using latest code  6.0.82 .

""Warning: Our AP with Base Radio MAC 00:1e:7a:18:6b:10 is under attack (contained) by another AP on radio type 802.11b/g.""

Also In this network they have 3com accesspoint and controller.I am sure our accesspoint is getting contained by the 3com accesspoint.

How can we resolve this issue.

Thanks and regards

I am seeing same things -

AP 'hmb-s494a-ap' is being contained. This is due to rogue device spoofing AP 'hmb-s494a-ap' BSSID or targetting AP 'hmb-s494a-ap' BSSID. - Controller Name: WISM9-CAH-PRI-1

We have 4 - WiSM and 4 4404 Controllers.   All 8 controllers have same mobility group - GU    All controllers are seeing each other.

I was told that solution to this problems was to make sure that are controllers are on same mobility group.

Is there other suggestion??

I know the 4.X and 5.X firmwares of the WLC has a number of unresolved bugs where the WLC can classify it's own AP as a honeypot.
