Cisco AP not broadcasting SSID

Hello everyone!

We have configired a virtual WLC with demo license for 200 AP (60 days)

Our 2602 AP has joined the controller but it is not broadcasting SSIDs even though the WLAN status is enabled and Broadcast SSID is checked

ANy suggestions?

Your AP should be in "FlexConnect" mode in order to work with vWLC. Change your AP mode to FlexConnect & see.

Maybe the radios of the particular AP is not enabled?  Maybe the radios have faulted and went into "reset".

The SSID you've created, did you put in in an AP Group?

Re: Cisco AP not broadcasting SSID

Once you go to vWLC GUI wireless tab & select your Access point. Then in the General tab, you can change the AP mode from Local to FlexConnect.

Step No 20 in Startup with vWLC section in given guide below (for vWLC 7.3)

If you are using any other vWLC versions you can find the config guides from here

You may need to configure your AP connected switch port as trunk port & make AP management interface vlan as native vlan on that trunk as well

Thank you, I have already done that.

The problem now is that we had 2 SSIDs, I configured one of them with FlexConnect, and could finaly make broadcast

Did the same things with the second SSID, and it is still not broadcasting.
