I am seeing a very strange behavior on a Cisco WLC 5508 where from the GUI, I see clients showing associated, authenticated, and in the RUN state yet I know for sure these clients are not connected. Has anyone seen this?
I have seen it, but I attribute it to the fact that I have User Idle Timeout extended out to 4 hours or longer to accommodate sleepy apples.
As long as it does not cause a problem with the devices reconnecting I do not care. We adjust the idle timeout on a WLAN configured for Central Web Auth with ISE so devices are not getting redirected to the login portal often.
During the discovery process, the 1040, 1140, 1260, 3500, and 3600 series access points will only query for Cisco CAPWAP Controllers. It will not query for LWAPP controllers. If you want these access points to query for both LWAPP and CAPWAP controllers then you need to update the DNS.
Ensure that the controller is set to the current time. If the controller is set to a time that has already occurred, the access point might not join the controller because its certificate may not be valid for that time.
My friend Greg brought to my attention about a recent bug file.
