I just noticed that PI 2.1 Release Notes, User Guide etc. were published 14 April 2014.
The Release Notes describe the new features and open/resolved caveats. It looks like the topology feature and a fix to the often-discussed syslog severity levels did not make the cut.
The software download center does not appear to have the update posted just yet (as of 16 April 2014)
Solved! Go to Solution.
I hope these release notes are inaccurate.... It still shows 126.96.36.199 as the highest level WLC firmware supported.
I see further down it has limited support for version 7.5 and 7.6. This is really ridiculous that Cisco can't get their management software to fully support their wlcs.
The document say that I can upgrade to 2.1 from 1.3 and 2.0, not from 1.4.
Any guesses about 2.2? If I upgrade our 1.3 to 2.1 will I then be able to upgrade to 2.2 or is it only possible to upgrade to 2.2 from 1.4 ...?
I am running 7.5 on our 5508's with some limited support in PI 1.3.
It is my understanding that LMS Prime 4.2.4 support licenses expire in 2015. What is the likelihood that Prime 2.1 will offer more features of LMS?
The Prime LMS End-of-sales/engineering/support announcements I know of (link) are for 4.0 and 4.1.
LMS 4.2 is still being "sold" (included as part of Prime Infrastructure bundles) for the very reason that PI does not have feature parity with Prime LMS (even - so it seems - as of the upcoming PI 2.1).
When Cisco announces EoX for Prime LMS I would expect it to follow the usual 3 year timeline for cessation of the sales, engineering and support activities.
Thankyou Marvin for the heads-up.
Still no sign of the software download for PI 2.1 update yet (22 April).
This is very frustrating that features are promised and then there is no mention in the supposed release. Unless these release notes are not the full release notes that will be issues when CPI 2.1 is finally officially released.
Apart from the two key features I would like to see Reachability determined by ICMP rather than SNMP, but I am not holding my breath for this.
Wait and hope perhaps.
