upgrade WLC from 7.3.112.0 to 7.6

Has anyone did an upgrade (from 7.3.112.0) to 7.6?

Has anyone experienced problems with version 7.6? If so, what version do you recommend?

Re: upgrade WLC from 7.3.112.0 to 7.6

There have been some reported issues with 7.6 and client connectivity on 7.6.

Unless you have 3700 series AP, or need a new feature that is only in 7.6, I would recommend that you go to the lastest release in the 7.4 train.

HTH,
Steve

upgrade WLC from 7.3.112.0 to 7.6

Hi Mathieu,

Persoanll  will recomamnd to go for 7.6 version.

Many bugs in 7.5 and  that 7.5 will not get any MR releases, while 7.6 will.

So better to go for 7.6

regards

Hey Scott, We are looking at

Hey Scott, 

We are looking at the 2700 series. I saw that I should upgrade to 7.6.120. Are there known bugs I should worry about?

7.6.120.X has a lot more

7.6.120.X has a lot more stability.  I'd recommend you upgrade if necessary.  

 

Not sure when 8.X is going to be available.  If you want to wait until then ...

Does anyone have experience with the new 2700 series?

upgrade WLC from 7.3.112.0 to 7.6

Does version 7.4 support the newest iOS firmware? That's the reason we want to upgrade. We don't have 3700 yet, but were looking at them today. Do you think that version 7.4 will in the long time support the newest iOS firmware as well?

upgrade WLC from 7.3.112.0 to 7.6

3700's require v7.6, v7.4 will not work.  v7.4 will be supported for a while, its the AP's that you need to make sure is supported by the code you put on the WLC.

Thanks,

Scott

upgrade WLC from 7.3.112.0 to 7.6

In 7.4, go for 7.4.121.0 release. Here is  the release note for this code

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/wireless/controller/release/notes/crn74mr02.html

If you are using 5508, make sure your WLC FUS also upgraded to 1.7.0.0. This will usually takes 30-40 min downtime to your wireless, so get enough outage organise for this change.

upgrade WLC from 7.3.112.0 to 7.6

So I can conclude we have to wait for a more stable release of 7.6 or to install the latest 7.4 and don't have full support for ios 7.x?

upgrade WLC from 7.3.112.0 to 7.6

HI Mathiew,

Again I will tell that 3700 AP only support atleast 7.6.100.0  version.

Either you can upgarde to this version or you must wait for new release or maintainance relase.

Stick with v7.4 since you don't have any 3700's.... wait and look at other posting to see if an newer version of 7.6 has issues or not.  The lateset doesn't mean the greatest. 

Thanks,

Scott

Is it possible to use FUS 1.9

Is it possible to use FUS 1.9 for the upgrade to 7.4? Or should I stay with 1.7?
