WLC Alarms - Unapproved client station detected & Threshold violations

Question 1. I've got 100's of these entries (attached error.jpg) coming up in the Alarm Summary with 'critical' status - What should be done to rectify this alert?

Question 2: I've got another alarm that I'd like to sort out, "Interface threshold violation reported by '802.11b/g/n' interface of AP 'name', connected to controller 'x.x.x.x'

Scott Fella's posting in 2008 "" recommends changing the RRM threshold [Configure > Controllers > x.x.x.x> 802.11b/g/n > RRM > Thresholds]

What is the best practise % to use, I don't want to plug in 30% and find it it detrimental to another part of the wireless setup - Or is this simply going to seize the alarm and life goes on as normal.

Cheers for your time,

WLC Alarms - Unapproved client station detected & Threshold viol

Wow that is an old post:)  Just remember, that "Interface threshold violation reported by '802.11b/g/n' is just a threshold and that is why some adjust the threshold just to get rid of the alarms. Also remember, that if you are seeing this error, you might want to see if you can remove some of those interferes.  In some cases you can't because of neighboring companies with wireless.
