Only the VIP and mobility name should be identical.

What do you mean by "convers". An AP will only join one wlc and when that primary wlc is no longer available, should failover to the other/secondary wlc. Mobility is required for an AP to know about all the other APs in that mobility group. And if not configured correct, your AP will only be able to join that wlc.

There is a timer on the failover, but you really don't want to adjust that any faster. If your primary is bouncing, it will cause more of an issue. Anyways, a hard failure will always cause an interruption for the clients and that you can't change.
