I have 2 WiSM blades with all 4 controllers running version 188.8.131.52 code. Each controller is responsible for a floor of a building.
If I connect to the first floor I get the correct IP address on a test laptop.
I then disconnect the laptop wireless and move to a different floor and enable the wireless adaptor again.
When the wireless connects it has kept the IP address from the 1st floor controller.
Even if I disconnect the client wireless and monitor the controller that it was connected to the controller still shows the client in the client list. The only way it will disappear is if I remove the client from the controller page.
Whilst this doesn't cause an operational issue it isn't right. The client appears to stick to a controller and will not be disassociated even if the client wireless adaptor is disabled. The logs don't even show the client being de-authenticated.
Anybody seen this before?
this is working as designed.
The client will retain the IP address that it got even if you disconnect until the entry has been removed from the MSCB. Either by you removing it manually or the user idle timeout expires, default of 5 minutes.
