AP goes off channel while identifying rogue ap threats

I'm having a problem where client connections get dropped, when the AP identifies a rougue ap threat.  In some cases, the client is dropped ever 5 minutes for up to 30 minutes.  My clients are connected over a RADIUS setup authenticating with an IAS service.

Found this on Cisco Support site:

Cisco lightweight access points are known to go off channel for up to 30 seconds (typically 1 to 2 seconds) while identifying rogue access point threats, when the Cisco lightweight access point has RLDP enabled. This can cause client connections to be dropped occasionally (CSCar10047).


Should RLDP be disabled enabled?  Is there any work-around for this?

My WLAN Environment:

- Controller - WLC2106; software version

- (3) 1242ag Access Points

- (1) 1131ag Access Points

Thanks in advance.

If you like keeping clients connected I would disable it

As a troubleshooting step, I have disabled RLDP on all Wireless Networks.

(Cisco Controller) config> rogue detection disable all

I'll monitor and report back after 4 business days.
