Running WCS 220.127.116.11 with WiSM controllers 18.104.22.168.
I have renamed and replaced several AP 1240's and I am still seeing the old AP names and duplicated to the New AP names in the WCS(Old names corresponding to the newly named AP macs).
I can only see the overlap AP names when I try to 'ADD' AP's to a map. Additionally I am getting license violations. We only have 134 AP's total and the system is counting for 152. This is the number of AP's visible from the ADD option. These additional AP's however are not visible from the Configure-> AP list.
I have tried the following to clear these phantom AP's:
- refreshing the configs from the controller.
- Deleting the controllers
- Removing Valid AP that correspond to the Phantom Names
I don't know if this makes any difference, but when I upgraded my controllers to 22.214.171.124 it was recommended by TAC that I upgrade WCS to 126.96.36.199 as a best practice. It seems that there are way fewer issues with 188.8.131.52 than with earlier versions. It's just a thought...
No, not at all. From what I have gathered from the TAC engineers I have spoken with in the past, they do not recommend having the WCS and the controllers on different rev's of code. So if you are running 4.0 on the controllers, then they say you should be running 4.0 on the WCS.
I don't know if one is more stable than the other, but I have heard plenty of issues with the 4.1 code in both the controllers and WCS.
I have 3 WiSM's and around 400 AP's and everything smoothed out for me when I went to 184.108.40.206 on the controllers and 220.127.116.11 on the WCS.
I did not see anything in the release notes under resolved caveats regarding AP counts, but couldn't help noticing that there are @ 94 open caveats in 18.104.22.168; some for linux or windows only, but there are many of which do not have workarounds.
My WCS-WLC+location is running smoothly at the moment. I think that I will hold off on the upgrade (actually: backup-uninstall-install-restore)until the next rev - if there is a feasible reason to upgrade.
