PI 2.1 WLC configuration archive

I'm trying to archive a controller's configuration after a config change has been made. I've tried 4402's and 5508's with no success. SNMP credentials and syslog address have been entered in the controller and correct credentials are entered in PI. A synch of the device and manual archive are both successful.

Configuration Archive Settings

The Configuration Archive will be one of the most used portions from a daily operation point of view. It is highly recommended to go to Administration > System Settings > Configuration Archive. The Basic tab allows users to define protocol order, SNMP timeout, the number of days and the versions to retain, thread pool count, and other such variables. The Advanced tab allows users to define a command exclude list for each of the device family types. Once this is done, users may view and compare configurations by navigating to Operate > Configuration Archives (under the Device Work Center). Browse the device and open up the tree to see all the configuration versions that have been archived for this device as shown in the preceeding figure. When you click Compare there, you quickly see the color-coded configuration differences instantly as shown in same preceeding figure.
