WLC 5508 running 7.4.110.0 unable to tftp upload config from controller

Hi,

Two WLC 5508 running identical code version. One is 50 license Primary, the second is HA. Identical config on both. HA WLC can upload its config to the TFTP or FTP server but Primary cannot. The operation fails for  both CLI and GUI and for different protocols i.e. TFTP, FTP.

Not upgrading to 7.4.121.0 because of bug CSCuo63103. Have not restarted the controller yet.

 

Any one else had this issue ? Is there a workaround ?

 

Thanks,

Rick.

Hi Rick,

I am running the same code on our 5508's so I'll give it a go.

Also, we ran into the same bug on 7.4.121.0, so reverted to 7.4.110.0.  There is now an engineering special release of 7.4.121.0 to fix the bug.  I plan on trying it in the next week or so.

Regards,

Stephen.

Thanks Stephen, In my deployments of 7.4.110.0 version I have not seen this issue so may be controller reboot will fix it (we do have HA to minimize the impact). I will keep the thread updated with findings and may request TAC for the special release 7.4.121.0 if the still not happy with 7.4.110.0

I just tried TFTP and FTP configuration upload from our primary and secondary controllers, all worked fine - similar settings as you (no encryption).

Hopefully a reboot fixes it!

Cheers,
