Cisco Wireless :: WCS 7.0172 Template Support For 2504 Controller?
Jun 11, 2013
I attempted to assign a User Roles template to a## 2504 controller and if failed with message stating controller version not supported. My current WCS version is 7.0172, if I upgrade to the lastest version will that resolve the template issue?
I currently have a single 2504 Controller managing 50 AP's. I am adding a Second 2504 AP Controller with 15 Lic to manage an additional 10 AP's. My current 2504 has each port configured for my four subnets that and it is managing AP's in 4 buildings. Should I configure the new 2504 the same way so that it can see all four sites? All so if the main 2504 goes down can the second 2504 take over even thou we will be out of lic?
upgrade on the wireless controller 2504 from 7.0 to 7.4 is direct upgrade.My customer faced problem by upgrading the software 7.0 to 7.4 directly and the image hang.how should proceed recover the image 7.4/
does wlc 2504 support air-ap 1262n-e-k9.if yes does the air-ap1262n need any upgrade or sometine to join the controller,this is versions & image for both AP & WLC2504: [code] and the below what i configure for my topology WLC connected to switch by Trunk linke allow all vlans.AP connected to switch by access mode for vlan 20. the IP address sechma :
We have a Cisco 2504 controller and approximately 35 AP's. Some of the AP's are located directly above each other (on another floor). When I run a basic annalyzer, it appears that there is some adjacent AP traffic, the controller has some of the close AP's with the same channel, so there is some RF interferance. The AP's currently are all setup for "G" and majority of the AP's are 1200 series, most of them are 1242's. Should and can the AP's be set with static channels so that there is no adjacent signals? If so where in the controller can that be done?
This is a new setup and has not worked yet. I have multiple 3602 APs and one 2504 Controller. I thought initially I could plug-in an AP into one of two POE Ports on the 2504. During debug mode I see that it has low power, was suprised that the 2504 switch can't fully power the AP? Is this correct?Anyways I have another POE switch that I am using with ample power. The configuration for my wireless is that it will be completely segmented off of my internal network as this is for guest access. So DNS servers are external so I cannot create host entries for the AP to discover the controller. With that being said I believe that is just one way for the discovery process to happen. I have my controller management interface and DHCP scope on the controller on the same subnet plugged into the same POE switch. The AP does seem to get a DHCP address and I can ping the controller from the AP. I cannot get any further then that. I will not join the controller and the radios get disabled. I get messages such as "discovery response from MWAR is rejected. I will post a debug log of the AP and its bootup process. This is new equipment so I would assume the firmware is somewhat up-to-date and the 3602 AP is somewhat the latest model.
Our current way of configuration for this is standalone ap's with multiple ssid's. The main network ssid's are on the 10.0.0.0 networks. The internet only ssid is on the 192.168.1.0 network. ( this is a wireless network only,no wired) They all get there dhcp address from a layer 3 switch. To prevent the wireless 192.168.1.0 intenet only network from getting to the 10.0.0.0 networks, we just put a simple source & destination deny acl on the in vlan interface of the 192.168.1.0 network on the layer 3 switch.Now that we are impementing a Cisco 2504 controller, the management and ap manger are both on the 10.0.0.0 network.( both on port 1 with dynamic ap manager enabled) I can setup as many ssid's on the 10.0.0.0 network and they all work fine. But when I setup the 192.168.1.0 internet only ssid it will not connect. I'm assuming that its because the 192.168.1.0 network or anyone trying to connect and use that network has to go through the controller located on the 10.0.0.0 network. I'm thinking that the acl on the vlan interafce is the problem.So, if I'm correct, what is the best way to setup a separate internet only network through the private networks?
I just completed setting up a AIR-CT2504-K9 controller with 9 APs with RADIUS on the private WLAN and an open guest WLAN; I want to enable netflow exports to a collector, but see no place in the GUI to do this and no obvious CLI commands.
I'm supporting a 2504 wireless controller with 3 aps in a health clinic. I'm interested in generating some useful information for the owners of the device such as radio utilization (It'd be really nice if there were some graphs). how I can generate these graphs without SNMP monitoring or something like Cisco Prime Infrastructure?
I have a Cisco Wlan Controller 2504 with 1042N AP (3-nos) every thing was working fine from past 2 months. Now i am getting a issue with clients which are connected to the wireless AP, they are not able to get an dhcp IP address from the 2960 Switch (DHCP Server). The clients are getting IP address as 0.0.0.0. [code]
Any online 2504 controller crash after upgrade to the point where even console port does not put anything out? Perfectly working 2504 running 7.0.116 ran upgrade through web GUI to 7.2. GUI showed perfect transfer, save etc... Asked for save before reboot. Select yes. Controller reboot and now it sits with following status lights:Power-greenSYS - amber blinkingALM - amber solidNothing out of console.
I ordered controller 2504 and will arrive soon. I want to know that after configure the initial setup of 2504 (i.e. AP manager , Management IPs etc) and defining the DHCP for AP. Will the 1042 lightweight AP will register with the controller automatically or i need to manually define the AP (MAC address) on WLC. and also whether the Option 43 and 60 are correctly defined?
Management Interface: 10.10.22.15 AP Manager Int: 10.10.22.16 ip dhcp pool WLAN103 network 10.10.3.0 255.255.255.0 [code]...
I have a customert that needs to support 200 laptops over 16 classrooms with scalability to 400 laptops. I have a heatmap design to cover this with 22 1042 access points. Does any one know what features the 5508 has over the 2504? By reviewing the data sheets, the biggest feature difference is better support for mobility, which not a need for this deployment as they just wheel a cart of laptops into a classroom and fire them up. Also, does the 2504 support LAG across the four gig interfaces?
I have a 2504 controller and 2 2602 access points. I have managed to get them connected ok to the controller. Now I'm in the home stretch here trying to figure out how to authenticate clients to active directory 2003.I have followed a really good guide on setting up the windows 2003 CA server and have got my certificates installed ok on the controller.It looks as though I have to install the client certificate on each client laptop?? Is there a method other than client certificates with active directory?
All controllers are in version 188.8.131.52.C1 is a 5508, it is ou anchor controller.C2 is a 5508, it is a big site controller.C3 is a 2504, it is a small site controller. C2 and C3 are in the same mobility group than C1 (and all is up up in mobilty managment). When "DHCP Addr. Assignment" is enable on C1 : Clients on C2 received their IP address by our external DHCP server via C1 and the guest tunneling betwenn C1 and C2 and all is working fine. Clients on C3 don't received their IP address by our external DHCP server via C1 and the guest tunneling betwenn C1 and C3, so nothing work.
I am actually working in configuring a wireless controller 2504 integrated a windows 2008 server as radius server for authenticating the network users registered in a windows active directory database. The Radius server is a Windows 2008 Server with the rol of Network Policy Server.
I have been following a pair of documents in Internet, but it doesn't work yet.
Which authentication method should i use?...the Windows 2008 NPS doesn't work wtih LEAP, should i use PEAP or there is an another recomendation to authenticate the windows active directory users?
configuration tested working between a cisco wireless controller and Windows 2008 NPS as Radius Server for authenticating the windows network users.
We have other APs that associate w/o issue AIR-LAP1141N-A-K9. However our 1 1310 is having issues.. The Controller log shows:

I have setup guest access on the controller and this is not working at the moment. DHCP server setup on the controller for the Guest users. You are able to connect (get ip address from controller) and the browser gets redirected to 184.108.40.206 but then page can not be displayed instead of the login page.
i have currently a 2504 WLC and some 1602i AP's.Basically so far i have configured the WLC as per the guidelines on the startup and now i want to join the AP's (which i haven't managed to do yet) and the setup the wireless network.I can get the AP to join and pickup an ip address and that is it. It comes up with different error messages from the WLC, and through hyper terminal, none of which i understand but the main jist is the following:
*spamApTask4: Feb 19 15:05:56.171: #CAPWAP-3-DECODE_ERR: capwap_ac_sm.c:3844 Error decoding Join request from AP 6c:20:56:0e:23:e0 AND 0Tue Feb 19 15:06:19 2013AP with MAC 6c:20:56:0e:23:e0 (AIR-CAP1602I-E-K9 ) is unknown. AND
I have a 2504 and my goal is to automatically redirect a users home page when they connect to a certain internal website. Authentication isn't a real concern just now.
Is it possible to simply have a users home page redirected when they open their browser upon connecting to the SSID? All of the documents available have stated to use 802.1x / RADIUS or other fancy tools.
