We are having a problem at the school I'm working at. There are 133 APs located across campus.
They have been running for 3.5 years without any trouble.
Recently we have been having issues with APs disconnecting at random.
It started last week with just a couple. We got them running again, but later the same day new ones had disconnected.
This has continued with more APs and it looks like it happens at random and it is never the same one that disconnects.
We have a centralized support-unit that helps us with stuff like this, but they haven't come up with a solution, so I was hoping someone here had seen this behavior before.
Today at 7AM all the APs were running, but at the time of this post 6 of them have disconnected.
AP (130 of them):

Some of the error-messages I have located on the different APs that have disconnected:
Layer 3 discovery request not received on management VLAN
Lwapp discovery request rejected
Just give me a shout if any other information is needed.

Make sure you also update the FUS image which also can be downloaded on CCO. This will take 30-45 minutes to complete before you have access to the WLC, so make appropriate request for downtime.
