Cisco 1250/1141N AP displays ghost client sessions with 12.4(25d)JA

 

 

Introduction

Cisco standalone IOS 1252AP has number of SSIDs (MBSSID guest-mode) and one is a public access. It has been noted since the IOS upgrade that the client associations are just growing and growing, and never seem to timeout, even though they are no longer associated, as per the example below:

Problem Description

THEAP#show dot11 associations

 

802.11 Client Stations on Dot11Radio0:

SSID [XXXXXXXXX] :

 

MAC Address    IP address      Device        Name            Parent         State   

0023.322c.xxxx 0.0.0.0         unknown       -               self           Assoc  

581f.aa41.xxxx 0.0.0.0         unknown       -               self           Assoc  

9084.0d2c.xxxx 0.0.0.0         unknown       -               self           Assoc  

dc2b.615b.xxxx 0.0.0.0         unknown       -               self           Assoc  

 
 
THEAP#show dot11 associations dc2b.615b.xxxx
Address           : dc2b.615b.xxxx     Name             : NONE
IP Address        : 0.0.0.0            Interface        : Dot11Radio 0
Device            : unknown            Software Version : NONE
CCX Version       : NONE               Client MFP       : Off
 
State             : Assoc              Parent           : self

VLAN              : 5
Hops to Infra     : 1                
Clients Associated: 0                  Repeaters associated: 0
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
This only seems to happen on dot110 (b/g) radio, perhaps due to this being a common client. Tried adding the following to see if the default of 60 is broken
 
dot11 activity-timeout unknown default 70
 
 

Resolution

 
1141N AP displays ghost client sessions

Symptom:1141N AP running 12.4(25d)JA code displays ghost client sessions . The expired client sessions are not getting removed on AIR-AP1141N-E-K9 and 'show dot11 association all-clients' output displays some of the expired client entries as well. This behavior is seen in customer n/w and particularly on access-points placed in environments (public hotspot solution) with many "unintended" associations e.g. people passing by with smartphones seems to accumulate associations.

 

Conditions:Wait some time till the ghost clients are associated to AP.

 

Workaround:
1. clear dot11 client < MAC of client> will clear the particular client.
2. reload the image will clear all the ghost clients.
3. issue "shut" and "no shut" on interface
