WISM-1 Error


I have a 6506-E Switch that was functioning in VSS Mode. I already clear this configuration and only have one switch with a Service WISM Module.

This is the output show wism status

#sh wism status

Service Vlan : 168, Service IP Subnet :


Slot  Controller  Service IP       Management IP    SW Version  Status


4     1   Oper-Up

4     2                       Service Port Up

sh ip int b | inc Port

Port-channel140  YES manual up                    up     

Port-channel407        unassigned      YES unset  up                    up     

Port-channel408        unassigned      YES unset  up                    up 

The led Status on the Second Controller is "ORANGE"

What can be the problem.

I power down the module 4 and it doesn´t work.

The first Controller is working Properly.

What can be the problem??????????

Console into the controller.  There's no IP addresses anywhere.


WISM-1 Error

a WISM1 has 2 controllers, so you have to configure the second one.

Just to add.... take a look at this guide as it will explain how to setup your WiSM.  Like Leo and Web User mentioned, there are two separate WLC's in a WiSM1 and you also have to define your service port IP address.

Re: WISM-1 Error

Not relegated to your issue but I noticed your code is 7.0.98 .. Id recommend a higher code rev. .98 was problematic ..

WISM-1 Error

WISM consists of two independent controllers. Interfaces and ip addresses have to be considered on both cards independently. Use the following command to verify installation of both cards. Orange color of Stat. LEDs signifies booting is in process. Crossing temp threshold can also display orange color.
