Cisco WLC 5508 LWAPP-3-INVALID_AID2

Hi,

We have a cisco 5508 WLC with software version 7.4.121.0.

All our APs works in flexconnect mode, with local authentication for all SSIDs (PSK).

We keep receiving the following log messages:

*apfReceiveTask: Jul 09 07:34:49.464: #LWAPP-3-INVALID_AID2: spam_api.c:1370 Association identifier 3 for client 88:30:8a:5b:68:4e is already in use by 5c:f8:a1:13:85:9c

When we googled it we found the following bug:

CSCub21596
 
But in the bug affected version there is no 7.4.121.0
 
Any ideas?

Symptom:HREAP - Reached max limit on the association ID for AP

Messages similar to the following in the msglog:

*apfMsConnTask_6: May 29 10:15:57.758: #APF-3-AID_UPDATE_FAILED: apf_80211.c:9041 Error updating Association ID for REAP AP Client00:ac:fd:00:8f:00 - AID 41
*apfMsConnTask_6: May 29 10:15:57.758: #LWAPP-3-INVALID_AID2: spam_api.c:1357 Association identifier 41 for client 00:d2:d1:01:11:f2 is already in use by 00:d2:d1:01:10:29

At this time, clients are unable to associate on the given BSSID on the given AP.
Conditions:0. FlexConnect AP.
1. Client 1 is associated to the controller with AID =1 on ssid x
2. Client 1 sends 802.11 Auth frame on ssid y, at this point AID = 1 is
freed at the AP. Auth frames are not honored at the controller, so
controller is not informed
3. No association frame arrives from client 1 at ssid 2
4. Client 2 associates to the AP and gets AID = 1
5. AP updates the controller about client 2 and AID =1, at this point the
controller adds duplicate entries and increments the count (controller
already has client 1 AID =1).

Counter is getting incremented and reaching 256.
It is due to the network conditions at the
customer site in which the 802.11 authentication frames are sent(sometimes
on different WLAN), but is not followed by association frames.
