AP goes off channel while identifying rogue ap threats

I'm having a problem where client connections get dropped, when the AP identifies a rougue ap threat.  In some cases, the client is dropped ever 5 minutes for up to 30 minutes.  My clients are connected over a RADIUS setup authenticating with an IAS service.

Found this on Cisco Support site:

Cisco lightweight access points are known to go off channel for up to 30 seconds (typically 1 to 2 seconds) while identifying rogue access point threats, when the Cisco lightweight access point has RLDP enabled. This can cause client connections to be dropped occasionally (CSCar10047).

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/wireless/controller/release/notes/r1x4x31.html

Should RLDP be disabled enabled?  Is there any work-around for this?

My WLAN Environment:

- Controller - WLC2106; software version 6.0.182.0

- (3) 1242ag Access Points

- (1) 1131ag Access Points

Thanks in advance.

If you like keeping clients connected I would disable it

Re: AP goes off channel while identifying rogue ap threats

As a troubleshooting step, I have disabled RLDP on all Wireless Networks.

(Cisco Controller) config> rogue detection disable all

I'll monitor and report back after 4 business days.
