So I as part of a clients solution, we have deployed a High Available pair of C5210 controllers.
One controller is the primary and the other the backup.
All AP's home to the primary and also creates a backup tunnel to the backup controller.
When an AP fails over to the backup controller we see the following on the Primary controller:
The AP indicates no channel or output power.
If you look at the AP reports on the controller it also indicates as Off.
If we look on the backup controller we do see the AP with the Channel info and transmit power info.
From the backup controller you can see the setting but not change anything again.
For the client this is very frustrating, he has to flip flop between controllers to get the full view and config.
What is your recommendations for managing this?
We also have no easy way of identifying what AP is connected to what Controller.
The only way to do this is to have a look at the AP availablility report, but the client has just over 1000 AP's and to find the specific one is not a quick process.
I would recommend they color code (Green and Blue) be added to the AP configuration list.
At least this is a quick way to see where the AP is currently homes too.
It would also be nice to be able to change AP config from any of the controllers.
