stp obligatory needed on wlc?

Answered Question
Mar 2nd, 2010


we use several wlc440x which connect each with two links to two different core switches which are interconnected to each other; one of the core switches is stp root for all vlans.

Is there any need for the wlcs to have stp activated on their ports? As far as I know they don't bridge between their ports so in my opinion it's not obligatory.

Many thanks,


I have this problem too.

Take a look at this link.... I never enabled STP on any of my WLC installs.

No, STP is not required on the WLC's.  Actually its recommended that you don't enable STP on the controllers.
