Upgrade from firmware version 7.1.91.0 to a latest stable one

Hello,

 

We are running WLC 5508 with software version 7.1.91.0. We have recently run into bug CSCua29504 which prevents Windows 8 devices from joining the SSID which is configured with WPA/WPA2 with AES. Can someone suggest me a latest stable version to which i can upgrade our system.

 

Thanking you in advance.

 

Prince Mathew

You could try 7.4.121.X or 7

You could try 7.4.121.X or 7.6.110.X.   Read the Release Notes to ensure you know what bugs are there.


Make sure you upgrade the FUS code too.

At least get 45min outage window if you want to perform both upgrades.

Hi Rasika,

FUS stands for Field Upgrade

FUS stands for Field Upgrade Software.  

 

It's actually another TLA (three-letter acronym) and is synonymous to the word "bootstrap".  

 

The Release Notes and the procedure about how to upgrade FUS code can be found HERE.

Is it Field recovery image

Is it Field recovery image version? Can you confirm it from my controller image?

Hall of Fame Super Gold

Nope.  It's not the same.  

Nope.  It's not the same.   You will need to upgrade all the FUS before you hit the latest one.

FUS and field recovery are two different things.  I'd concentrate more on the FUS.

This means the WLC has never had the FUS upgrade.  Upgrade first to 1.7.0.0 using CLI (instructions already posted) and then reload the WLC.  Only after the bootloader has been successfully upgraded to 1.7.0.0 can you upgrade to 1.9.0.0 and this time you can use the GUI.
