If I am correct, you can assign 32 Ap's to a site. So if there are more then 32 AP's, you have to create a new site.

In the logging of the EWC I see de-registration of clients and the additonal detail is that the cause is roaming between two different sites.

Is this roaming or a disconnect at AP1 and an connect at the AP2 ?

I'd say roaming.

Why do you use sites ?

Because I have more then 32 AP's on one location.

And then I see that behavior in the logging

Is the controller on a central site and the APs are connected via WAN and you need the sites funtion for local 802.1X authentication if the WAN link is down.

Because that is the only reason you'd need sites.

Oke, my situation is: controller is present on the central site.Central site have two buildings. One office and one logistic. Configuration for Office is different then the configuration of the logistic building ( different wlan's). Logstic building have more then 32 AP's.

How can I link Wlan's to AP's ?

OK, so you don't need the sites function.

In > VNS > WLAN Services >
Building#1 SSIDs - just select the APs in Building#1
Building#2 SSIDs - just select the APs in Building#2

There is no function to make group-templates but in my opinion that isn't needed as you only set it once and never touch it again.

I don't know how your network looks like so you might want to disable " Inter-WLAN Service Roaming" in the advanced option of every WLAN service.

Here a old post that explains it a little bit...
