Force ap to join secondary controller

I currently have 2 2106 wlc's.

Each is licensed for 6 access points. Controller 1 is full. Controller 2 has 5/6 aps.

When I add the 12th access point it repeatedly attempts to connect to controller 1. It never tries to connect to controller 2.

In the ap config I have specified the names of the primary and secondary controllers.

Primary - Controller_2

Secondary - Controller_1

Shouldn't this force the ap to attempt to connect to Controller_2?

Hi Adam,

Can you try setting WLC # 2 into "Master Controller" mode?

Hope this helps!

Thanks Rob.

Turns out I had to set each controller in the same Mobility Group and add each others MAC/IP addresses into the Mobility Group Members. It now appears to use the primary controller first.
