I'd like to run a AP packet capture and get the error below.

OK my paired controller is down (lab setup) but what has that to do with anything - the AP is up and local to that controller and FF is disabled so there is no need to have the foreign controller up.

You could ssh in to the AP and run "ccapture start 40000", point wireshark (windows only) to port 2002 then "ccapture stop". But yes, the inability to configure a failed over AP is a bit annoying in general.

Hi Ron,

in the new codes 10.4x we built a new tunnel ICDT – inter Controller Data Tunnel. 

This is used for remote packet capture and remote console of ap’s connected to foreign controller.

It seems if this tunnel was created in a HA case already the process seems to be asking always for that.

I don't test it but if you disable HA on this one I would expect that it will start to work again?

Regards

I'm pretty sure that you are right but I don't want to remove my availability config as that would remove the foreign settings.

But OK if that is FAD - I was only baffled by this weird behavior.

BR,
Ron
