Error message on AP: "Inconsistent state found for query"

Core Issue

This happens because of the bug CSCeh79045


After an upgrade to CiscoWorks Wireless LAN Solution Engine (WLSE) version 2.11, devices such as 1410 bridges (BRs), Cisco Access Point (AP) 1200 series, and AP 350 series show the Inconsistent state found for query error message. This error states that Cisco bug ID CSCeh79045

To resolve an inconsistent configuration, there are several actions to try:

  • It is possible that the most recent inventory failed for the device. If the inventory is re-run, the condition may clear.

  • If the configuration value contested is user-editable, the problem can be corrected with the WLSE templates, the AP or BR GUI, or the AP or BR Command Line Interface (CLI).

  • If the configuration value contested is not user-editable, this is probably a Cisco IOS  error. In this case, the affected AP or BR must be upgraded to the most recent version of Cisco IOS.    

For more information on the WLSE known issues and their resolutions, refer to the Known and Resolved Problems section of Release Notes for the CiscoWorks WLSE and WLSE Express, Release 2.12.
