Cisco :: 5508 WLC Configuration / Can't Access GUI On Management Interfaces Ip Address
Aug 30, 2011
I've got a new 5508 wireless lan controller and can ping the ip address of the management interface, but can't access the GUI at the management interface's ip address. I can access the GUI on the service-port interface. No static routes in the controller; trunk appears to be set up correctly.
I didn't design the job, but is pretty straight forward, except the following, the design has a single wlc 5508 with 2 physical connection between two non cisco switches. There are 2 initial WLANs to be created. I am ok with most of the wlc config execpt the following:
Now from my understanding of everything I have read recently, you can't use LAG on the 2 physical connections if they connect to 2 seperate switches, unless, although not offically supported, the 2 connections are on either 2 3750s in the same stack or a pair of 6500s running VSS. So I believe that in my case 2 seperate connections from the wlc to 2 non cisco switches will not work with LAG. Is my understanding of this correct?
Is there a way to maintain the 2 physical connections from the wlc to the 2 non cisco switches to maintain redundancy?The wlc will have a management interface obviously, but from what I have read, the 2 WLANs that are going to be created have to have their own interface on the WLC. Which I understand as the managment int and each of the 2 WLANs are on different subnets.
If I don't use a single uplink to one of the non cisco switches (either 1 or 2 physical connections) using LAG, it appears to me that each of the interfaces ( management, wlan1 and wlan2) need to have a physical connection from the WLC to the switch, with each interface mapped to a physical port on the WLC, so correct me please if I am wrong, but this would mean I need 3 physical connections between the wlc and the swtich?
My 5508 WLC which runs version 7.4 is configured as a DHCP server for the AP management and here's my problem: My AP can get to the address, and can ping the address of the WLC management，But my AP prompts the following log： [code]
In the switch dhcp we can use to do the WLC option43 specified address, but in this case how the address specified WLC, the AP can be registered up?
After I've upgraded software to the v7.3 and applied AP-SSO it made imposible to access the controller's gui via Service-port. So we tried to access it by management-port, but there is some problem too. It is not working from another subnets. But default gateway on management vlan is set correctly and I even tried to turn of all acl's on switch. WLC is only accessible from the same network. But at the same time wlc is replying on ping fine.All other protocols cannot connect to the controller.
I configure IP address on the management interface port 1 of 5508 controller when i connect it direct to my laptop i can't ping or access controller from my laptop even i connect through layer 2 switch still i can't not.
IP Address of management interface : 10.21.0.50 Laptop IP Address : 10.21.0,51
I am the Systems Admin at LDM Media and am trying to get some support for one of the SRW224G4 managed switches we have in our rack. The issue is as follows:
Any endpoint connected to the switch is assigned an IP address in the range of 169.254.154.XXX regardless of the switches set IP range, the second issue is that I cannot access the web view management interface through the default IP address 192.168.1.254 (and I have tried to use the last IP in the range set by the router 169.254.154.254, to no avail)
How to regaining control of this supposedly smart switch?
I have a Nexus 5548UP that would be managed by two organizations. Is it possible to set IP addresses for mgmt0 and an SVI (or an L3 interface) without using the L3 daughter card? I don't want to route between VLANs, just to separate management traffic.
we recently got a new router and added it to our network... works fine the problem now is that i'm trying to add some other ip addresses to access wireless internet (for security reasons the wirless internet is available only to one set of ip addresses) but now that i try to access the router config to get that ip address in i cant access the router config. i try multiple addresses but still nothing. i try to find the ip using cmd but it just gives me tunnel 000000000
I have 5508 controller in my lab. I am working on a project to set up a public internet but with some condition.
- User should able to connect to the SSID without any authentication.
- Once user will connec to the SSID it should redirect to an external URL which indicates terms and condition and email address field.
- User should enter his/her email address in email addrss filed and click I accept button.
- Once that is done then he/she is allowed to access internet.
We are not sure how can we achive this as I do not know what should be the return value for WLC to allow that user to go through or what should be the settings on the WLC to redirect to the page.
I have seen a settings on web authentication for external URL but I guess it is only for username passwor or Radius authentication. While in this case I do not want to use any authentication just an accept buttor or Decline button and all good to go.
On a WLC 5508 it lists an option to specify a "Backup Port" under the physical information section on an interface. We have two central switched SSID's which are connected to an internal firewall. We are looking at installing a backup/standby firewall and running a virtual firewall between them. Each SSID would have an additional patch from the WLC to the standby firewall.
Does the backup interface port function on the WLC allow traffic to be failed over from a centrally switched SSID via backup interfaces to an alternative device? If this does work will only physical link failure to the primary firewall cause the backup port to be activated or is there configuration parameters which can be specified for load, packet loss or latency which can be used as criteria to cause the backup port to be utilized?
I'm setting up a new 5508 WLC (the first wlc I have ever setup) and I have my WLAN setup with our existing WPA/TKIP ssid for transitioning our clients from our existing autonomous system to the wlc. I have selected PSK as the key mgmt and I can get the client's to connect for a few minutes but I keep seeing these errors:
Fri Aug 21 08:50:05 2009 Client Excluded: MACAddress:00:21:00:f9:dd:50 Base Radio MAC :00:23:eb:27:e3:b0 Slot: 1 User Name: unknown Ip Address: unknown Reason:802.1x Authentication failed 3 times. ReasonCode: 4
I don't have nor do I want 802.1x enabled. Is there something I need to disable either on the client or the controller?
I have a 5508 deployed, what I'm trying to do is configure it so that it can be accessed with AD credentials, I'm not talking about accessing the wifi network, I'm talking about logging onto the controller itself for management purposes. We havea few people our team, and it would be alot easier if each of us could log into the controller with our own AD logins. Is there a link that can assist me in accomplishing this, I haven't been able to find one.
I am trying to configure two AP-management interfaces to accept CAPWAP on different ports using the option "Enable Dynamic AP Management". One of them uses public ip address. However, I getting the message "Ignoring discovery request received on non-management interface ..." on this.
The scenario is that currently one of the client has a firewall Tie ring T1 internet facing and T2 internal which has multiple DMZ connected.
T2 firewall has a DMZ switch connected which has a router which connects to MPLS cloud to different site across the country. (around 10 sites) all static routing.
Now the client is thinking to deploy wireless at all 10 sites using H-REAP. The issue is that client has only one WLC and they are not willing to buy other as i was thinking to deploy two WLC one for corporate and one for guest users. (one in internal network and on in DMZ)
Now my question is as follow.
1- Keeping in mind that there is only one WLC where should i physically put it? 2- How guest users will work ? How the authentication will be done? 3-There are 8 SFP ports in WLC how physical topology will look like? 4-How many Vlans i have to make for wirless users will that be 10? (1 at each site) ?
my last question is that how these ports work on WLC are they just like switch e.g one port can be assigned to different vlan....just confuse about interfaces and vlans on WLC (interfaces concept)
I have a 5508-WLC appliance and configured multiple ap-manager interfaces to balance the join request from LAPs and the load.I went to console port from some LAPs and saw that there was that balance among multiple ap manager interfaces (Dynamic AP Management Interfaces). Then we torn down one of the ap manager interfaces and confirmed that the LAPs were moved to next ap manager interface automatically.But the question here is, how can I verify which ap-manager interface was used for a LAP from the WLC via GUI or CLI ?? or how can I see the amount of APs joined using that ap manager interface from WLC ?

We have 3 WAP4410N on our network. Our laptops pick them up but I cannot access the configuration Utility or ping the default IP address. If their IP addresses have been changed how do I find out what their current IP adds are? We currently use static IP addressing for our network.
I setup a WLC5508 with 2 SSIDs, one for guest traffic and another for internal users. They are in separate subnets and are routed out to the internet via 2 different isps, with the guest network going over a bonded t1 and the internal users going out the primary internet connection for the company. While this works as desired and we've verified that while on the guest network we're going out the right isp, we've encountered an issue with saturation of the bonded t1 pipe by guests. We'd like to find a way to limit a guest to a capped down/up stream if possible, with downstream being the most important. The infrastructure includes 3560 switches and AIR-CAP3502I-A-K9 access points.
I'm having an issue with the 5508 management port .. I can't seem to ping it from the switch connected to it .. ( the Show cdp command shows that the two can see each other .. but no ping is possible ! [code]
We faced one recent issue with WLC configuration behavior and explaining our observation and workaround we did.Requirement is to manage the WLC (5508 with 7.4 code) using two SNMP managers in different locations. Also these two Servers should use the same community string to manage WLC.
We were able to configure the SNMP community string for one server IP (to allow access) through GUIWhile trying to add another Server – IP with same community string – it didn’t allow As per the configuration guide, Controller can use only one IP address range to manage SNMP community. So we cannot configure the same community string to allow only two different server IP addresses [code] We currently configured the major subnet ( 10.x / 8 - two match both server addresses) and it works fineAlso when we tried 0.0.0.0 / 0.0.0.0 , it didn’t work (SNMP was failing)But this creates a security issue wherein anybody can poll the WLC.
I'm setting up a new 5508. I've used the config from a 4402, have successfully connected to the Service port to manage the device, but for some reason cannot connect to the Management interface. In this case, port 1.
The service port is connected to a Catalyst switch and grabbed an ip address (10.2.x.x subnet) no problem. I can access the 5508 via https using the SP. However, port 1 is connected to the same Catalyst switch, but on a different vlan (subnet 10.20.x.x). Both ends show that the interfaces are up, I can ping the interface from any other host on the network, but when I try to manage the device via https I cannot connect. We are using WCS and I cannot add the device from the WCS. About all I can do is ping that interface.
I'm trying to verify some behaviors I'm seeing with my 5508 controller setup, I've zero experience with this hardware and clueless on the best practices. With that said... out of the box I ran through the AutoInstall process.
I gave my service port an IP address on my subnet, 10.10.8.0/24 vlan 100 and gave the management interface the ip address 10.10.30.5/24 vlan 130
From my host I can ping the management interace 10.10.30.5 and the interface gateway 10.10.30.1 I cannot connect to the controller via 10.10.30.5 either through the web GUI or telnet I can connect to the controller via 10.10.8.200 both through the web interface and telnet while connected to the service port, I can ping the management port IP but I cannot ping the 10.10.30.1 gateway.
We have attached two test 3502I AP's and they found the controller and pulled correct ip addresses, clients can authenticate and access network resources as well as the Internet so for the most part, things are working but it concerns me that the management interface can't ping its own gateway.
I have 2 x 5508 Wireless Controllers, 1 mgmt port on each as standard. I noticied something different between these controllers running the same code.I can bound a physical port to the mgmt interface on one controller but not the other (both interfaces are untagged)see below, this config appears on one controller but not the other? Is this something to do with the initial setup? How can I add Phyiscal information to the other controller mgmt interface, I cannot delete the mgmt interface. Physical InformationPort Number Backup Port Active Port Enable Dynamic AP Management?
Local DHCP (via the 5508) is for the guest network while the management and voice use the Windows DHCP server.
My problem, Voice and guest work fine. I have two SSID's (one 802.1X and the other PSK) that use the management interface that will not get an IP. I have enabled dhcp proxy from the cli on the controller. I tried with the management VLAN tagged and untagged.
I'm using LMS 4.0.1 (current patches and device packages)
There is a problem with the configuration fetch.There are some 2503 routers with IOS 11.3(6) and the message on LMS is: Couldnot enter ENABLE Mode from USER Mode on Device
The devices arn't configured with username, only telnet pw and enable pw; no access-lists or other limitations configured
The credential check is ok ... multiple checks done ... devices deleted, new discovery ... devices deleted and manually added .... with the link //serverip:1741/rme/rmedevices.do I've changed the timeouts multiple times (up to 60 seconds for TFTP, SNMP) .... all these have had no effect of the config fetch
