Cisco :: 5508 - NCS Configuration Backup And Restore Of WLC

Jan 10, 2012

I recently tested the process for a customer of defaulting a Cisco WLC to factory configuration and then restoring the configuration from Cisco NCS.  It was not seamless to say the least and I wonder if I have just gone about it the wrong way. 
Have have set the NCS platform to configuration sync with the 5508 controllers at 04:00 every day and prior to the controller defaulting I ensured that NCS also reported that the config was in sync. I have also set NCS to complete a tftp backup of the controller every night 23:00 - interestingly though I have no idea where this is stored on the NCS platform ( a VM appliance ) or what it's file name is.
Anyway my experiences where as follows:-
1.  defaulted WLC and via serial CLI ended up at the configuration wizard.
2.  Set the correct LAG, management IP, host name that NCS knew this controller by.
3.  To test things just created a dummy WLAN ( SSID ) as I assumed this would be overwritten ( big mistake ! ). 
At this point I connected the controller to the network and tried to restore the configuration from the config sync version.

First problem - you have to remember to set up the SNMP community string you were using as it is needed by the configuration sync process.  After adding this to the controller I could push the configuration to the controller.

Second problem - failed to add the first WLAN from the backup as I have added the temporary dummy W LAN via the wizard and NCS reported a conflict.  So had to delete WLAN ID 1 from the WLC GUI directly and then the config push no longer reported this error.

Third problem - for some reason did not add the TACACS server details - reported the error that it could not added them.  I manually added these via a template via NCS and all was well. 

Fourth problem - all but the first WLAN was in the disabled state - had to re-enable all of the WLANs. 

Fifth problem - any default items I had disabled or removed have not been saved - therefore I have removed the public and private SNMP communities - but these were still on the WLC after the restore.  I have disabled unused ports not in the LAG as they show an error in NCS - these where not disabled after the restore.
So all in all not a very satisfactory restore process from NCS to an defaulted WLC ( meant to simulate to the customer what would be needed if they had to replace a controller due to hardware failure ).

Cisco Wireless :: 5508 To Join With 2 WISM As Backup

Jun 20, 2012

I have a facility, where all the access points almost 250 of them are connected to two WisM's (One in each core switch ) . They are running in 6.0.199 firmware . These two WisM's are managed by WCS , which is running 6.0.188.
As i need to add more access points and to make fully redundant , 5500 controller was ordered and it has with firmware 7.0 installed. Couple of queries related with it .
1. Can 5500 be added in the WLC group, so that existing Access Points can be configured to use primary controller as 5500 and secondary / tertiary controller as WISM ?

2. Will 5500 be able to be detected by WCS , as the version of 5500 is 7.0 and WCS version is 6.0.188 ?

3. As WCS was already deployed and live, is it possible to upgrade, if the client has support contract like SUSA ?

Cisco Wireless :: Backup Port Of WLC 5508 MGMT Interface

Sep 8, 2012

Since WLC5508 MGMT interface is configured a AP-Mgr at the same time, can I set a Backup Port to WLC5508 MGMT interface? Refer to WLC configuration Guide:
In the Backup Port text box, enter the number of the backup port assigned to the management interface. If the primary port for the management interface fails, the interface automatically moves to the backup port.
Note Do not define a backup port for an AP-manager interface. Port redundancy is not supported for AP-manager interfaces. If the AP-manager interface fails, all of the access points connected to the controller through that interface are evenly distributed among the other configured AP-manager interfaces
if I need to configure the backup port for MGMT interface, i need to remove the AP-manager on MGMT interface and create a network dynamic interface for AP-Manager ?

Cisco Wireless :: Wireless LAN Controller 5508 - Loading Primary / Backup Image (Not Found)

Oct 23, 2012

I just turned on 2 Wirelless LAN Controllers 5508 and I am getting this message on both of them:
Loading primary image (Image not found)
** Unable to read "linux.pri.img" from ide 0:2 **
Loading backup image (Image not found)
 ** Unable to read "linux.bak.img" from ide 0:2 **
And it is taking me to the BootMenu. I selected option 4 to Clear Configuration and the controller seems to restart the system but I still get the same error. I checked the LEDs status and Sys is Amber and Alarm is OFF which according to the documentation is a System Crash.

Cisco :: 5508 - Backup And Failover Recommendations

Dec 9, 2012

I have two 5508 WLC's setup to run about 200 AP's as the moment.  This is a hospital with patient care now running over wireless.  I am looking for the best scenario to minimize down time.  Currently both controllers are in the same mobility group and I will be setting the primary / secondary controller in the High Availability tab for each AP.  Most setting are all default still.
My question:
Would it better to setup the primary/secondary from the global configuration?
Can I leave them in the same mobility group if I use the global configuration?
My only problem so far is having AP's on different controllers caused some response delay as clients move from one controller to the other.  I need to find the best possible response time with the lowest possible fail-over time.  Any recommondeations or links to a good article on this subject?

Cisco :: WLC 5508 Interfaces Backup Port

Apr 25, 2012

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?

Cisco Firewall :: ASA 5505 Backup ISP Configuration

Jun 13, 2011

I'm having problems configuring an asa 8.2(1) with a backup isp.  I followed the asdm instructions in this document: [URL]
I have my backup interface configured as DHCP and the static routes set. Pinging the gateway and other external IP address from the backup interfaces works normally. I have also tried configuring the backup interface as a static address but got the same results.
When removing the primary wan link, all traffic stops. When I ping a external DNS, I get these errors in the log: portmap translation creation failed for udp src inside: dst backup: 8, code0)
I though this type of error is related to a NAT problem, not sure where to look though.

Cisco :: Getting 5508 Wireless Controller Configuration

Sep 15, 2011

So we have a Cisco 5508 controller that is managing 15 AP's in one of our buildings.I am running 2 wlans, one is internal access via (wpa) radius, peap and domain login...that works well now
The other is a guest lan, that is only allowed to surf the web.
The question from our security group, is there a way to restrict wireless access to ONLY a corporate approved list of devices.
As it stands right now, we only support Blackberry's as our mobility device. All local data is encrypted. The issue here is our testing shows that with an Iphone (not approved) it is very easy to connect to the WPA network if a user knows how to enter in their domain credentials. From there they can browse our internal web servers and download corporate data to a non approved, non encrypted device such as the iphone.

Cisco :: User Privilege Level For Configuration Backup With PI 1.2

Feb 15, 2013

We have more than 50 devices handling by PI 1.2 (testing) I like to know how to do configuration archiving with user who doesn't have write privilege.
I tried like this.
username john privilege 6 password cisco privilege exec level 6 show running-config
(result) show run --> blank
  I tried this user with one of switch in PI 1.2. It did not do configuration backup
username inout password inout username inout privilege 15 autocommand show running-config
(result) once logged in, it automatically showed running-config. However when I tried with PI 1.2 with this user (inout). I couldn't do configuration back.
reference [URL]
create certain user with read-only privilege while PI 1.2 is able to do configuration archiving ?

Cisco Firewall :: ASA 5505 - Backup ISP Link Configuration?

Jan 28, 2013

I'm working on setting up a backup link for our ASA 5505 and I've followed these directions:  [URL]
The backup ISP gives us a dynamic address, however, when I enable the backup ISP's interface on the ASA, my vpn tunnels drop. As soon as I disable the backup interface, the tunnels come back up. I'm attempting to configure this across one of these tunnels, so obviously this is an issue, as is the fact that other people need the tunnels as well. I'm not sure what I did to make this happen, but I've been over the config many times and can't see anything different from the instructions in the link above.
I thought it might be trying to route traffic across the backup interface, but my primary interface is tracked and has SLA running on it, so I would assume it wouldn't roll over onto the backup interface.
