AP1230 Hot Standby issue


I'm setting an AP1230 to be the backup for another Ap1230. I did everything from the Cisco Manual Configuring a Hot Standby. I'm cloning all the parameters from the monitored AP except IP address and Hot Standby setting. My polling is set to every 5 secs and my timeout 600 secs.

My problem is that after 600 secs the Standby becomes active even thought the other AP is still up and running ( I set a wireless terminal to transfer 255 bytes every 2 secs) and I am monitoring the client association.

I don't know why the Standby thinks that the monitored unit is malfunctioning. If you have seen this before please let me hear your experience.

thank you!

Re: AP1230 Hot Standby issue

Did you try increasing the polling interval to a higher number. If there a lot on traffic on your netowork, 5 sec polling may not be enough.
