Upgrade WLC 4.2 to 5

Unanswered Question
Mar 18th, 2010

We currently have a WLC (4404) with version and have recommended us to upgrade to 5, but wanted to know which has this advantages and prejudices. Frequently use the "wlan override" to not publish any SSIDs in all APs and someone told us that in some versions 5 it does not work. Is this true?
Someone can help me.

In WLC 5.x versions, WLAN Override has been  replaced with the "AP Groups" feature;

Creating Access Point Groups

After all access points have joined the controller, you can create up to 150  access point groups and assign up to 16 WLANs to each group. Each access point  advertises only the enabled WLANs that belong to its access point group. The  access point does not advertise disabled WLANs in its access point group or  WLANs that belong to another group.


Hope this helps!

I have no idea who "recommended" but I am prejudice to the 5.X code.  If you want to upgrade, go to the 6.X instead.

The code was just released a few weeks ago and it's already "asured"?    That's fast!
