Hello all-


We are deploying two 5508 WLC running 7.2 ios. Is it possible to anchor these to a 4402 running 7.0.116.0. Is there any version mismatch issues. We can find documents on the older compatibility but not on the new code.


Thanks

This actually just came up on another thread. I dont think its documented yet, but another user commented that its working on his install. I havent tested it myself.

Historically, the Anchoring in Inter-Release Controller Mobility (IRCM) is the most tolerant of mobility features regarding code versions.  I've not seen an updated IRCM chart for 7.2,  but Anchoring is the one supported pretty much between 4.2 up to 7.0.....   I would expect that 7.0 to 7.2 would also fully function and be supported, especially since there would be alot of rumbling out there during customer migrations if people were really facing interoperability problems....


Now 7.2 to 4.2 and vice versa... thats probably more of a grey area...

I have some installs where I have 5508's running 7.2 and the customer used existing 4400's as an anchor, but running 7.0.230.0 with no issues.
