Is there a LW AP preemption function?

Answered Question
Mar 11th, 2010

If I have 2x 4402 WLCs with a 12AP licence and 20 1140 LWAPs, is there some way that I can configure the system so that in the event of a failure on one of the WLCs certain APs will preempt other associated APs and take their spot on the WLC?

For example:

I have an Executive AP and a 'Breakroom' AP, and they are on WLC1 & WLC2 respectively.

WLC1 fails. Executive AP (plus 9 other APs) are now orphaned. There are only 2 spots free so that leaves 8 orphaned APs. If the Executive AP is still orphaned is there any automatic mechanism to de-associate the Breakroom AP in favor of the Executive AP?

I have WCS in this example too.

thanks

Sounds like AP failover priority will give you what you are looking for.
