AP SSO WISM2 WLC 7.4.121

HI everyone,

I'm currently doing a proof of concept on the AP SSO feature running on WLC 7.4.121.

The first thing I would like be sure is that client SSO is not avalaible in 7.4.X release, i need to upgarde to 7.5.X, Am I right ?

The second thing I would like to share and investigate with you is about AP SSO not currently working in my topology.

I have 2 seperate C6500 (SUP720-3B) switches with 1 WISM2 in each and both switches interconnected trough a 10G port.

I enable AP SSO on both WLC that synchronize themselves trough the 10G port on a special redundancy VLAN.

They both synchronize, and everything is working (both AP database on primary and standby WLC).

What I can't understand is when forcing switchover on the primary (redundancy force-switchover command), the fallback is doing great to the standby WLC but the AP still get into CAPWAP DISCOVER state because of a timeout with the following logging message


*Feb 14 15:36:37.727: %CAPWAP-3-ERRORLOG: Sequence number (0) mismatch in request messageDeleting clients for centrally switched wlan 1

Deleting clients for centrally switched wlan 1

Sending hreap clients to wlc on HA event

AP1cdf.0f66.90b4#

% Cannot enable CDP on this interface, since CDP is not running

% Cannot enable CDP on this interface, since CDP is not running

., 5)14 15:37:22.934: %CAPWAP-3-ERRORLOG: Retransmission count for packet exceeded max(CAPWAP_WTP_EVENT_REQUEST

*Feb 14 15:37:22.934: %CAPWAP-3-ERRORLOG: GOING BACK TO DISCOVER MODE

So the SSID is unavalaible for a certain period of time as it would be with N+1 redundancy.

I also saw that some documentation said that tle WLC needs to be run on a VSS (

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/wireless/5500-series-wireless-controllers/113681-high-availability-dg-00.html) and some other say the contrary (http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/wireless/aironet-1130-ag-series/qa_c67-714540.html)

Did you manage to get AP SSO working and did you ever have this issue ?

Thank for you help !

HI Max,

Yes you need 7.5 version on WLC for Client SSO.

I never seen this tiype of error, You must contatc TAC and tell them about this issue.

yes the VSS must be configured between the 2 6K switches.

can you share show run-config from both WISMs ?

Firmware version 7.5 has been deferred by Cisco.

You can no longer download this software.

You could potentially use 7.6 firmware.  Please upgrade the FUS to 1.9.0 also.

Re: AP SSO WISM2 WLC 7.4.121

I have to say ap Sso is hit or miss. I considered deploying it myself but came to my senses based on all the problems.

I'm waiting till it gets more stable. Also how often does a controller go down ? I'm doing HA N+1.. That works very well ,.

We have 3700 so we have no choice. 

So far, haven't seen any issues with 7.6.X except for me disabling 12 Mbps.
