I know that the 3600 series APs are not supported on the 4404 WLC. However, would the following scenario be supported?
I would like to use the 4404 (software rel. 7.0) as a guest anchor with a 5508 (software release 7.2) as the foreign controller supporting series 3600 APs. I ask because the APs do not need to join the guest anchor.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I agree. This question has been rasied before and there was a matirx that showed the control and data planes (5246 / 5247) were not impacted by controller code. Your anchoring will work.
As mention before this should work since the APs will be joined to a 5508 WLC.
Better late than never.....Did you ever get this to work? I'm having trouble with a similar situation. Anchor controller is a 4404 running 7.0.230 and foreign controller is a 5508 running 7.3.101. Just curious on actual feedback from a deployment.
THanks in advance! //art
Yes, I did get it to work with a 4404 Guest Anchor on 7.0 and a 2504 Foreign Controller on 7.2 with a 3600 AP in a lab scenario. I expect the 5508 to work exactly the same.
Thank you. Confirmed.
I did succesfully deploy a 4402 running 7.0.235-3 as a local anchor and multiple 5508's running 7.3.101 as well as a few 4402's running 7.0.235-3 as foreign controllers. Multiple Mobility Groups. No issues found. Thanks again! //art
