You have 2200 1142 model AP's all running in H-REAP mode.
You have about 22000 wifi clients.
The WLC's are configured with a single management interface IP address
and the AP's are all in remote locations connected over a WAN.
You are finding that the WLC's are initiating packets with the source mac-address of each
client because the 6500 core switch that all your WLC's are connected to have a mac address
table of about 18000 mac entries. 16000 of those are client mac address.
This will be a major problem when you migrate to nexus switches that onlysupport 16000 macaddresses.
You need to find out why this is happening and need to stop the WLC's from making the
6500's learn 15000 mac address. You see no reason why the WLC needs to do this.
You are hitting his proble due to the following bugs causing H-REAP packet leak on the WLC Network:
Timing delay on HREAP locally switched WLAN's between WLC moving HREAP locally switched client into RUN state and the AP learning about the client status moving into RUN statecauses client packets to egress wlc. Hence the switch updates its mac address table with client entries from locally switched WLAN's.
Workaround: Create a dummy interface and tie the WLAN to that interface with a dummy VLAN that does not exist on the switch.
Setup an interace ACL on the management interface to block any traffic egressing the WLC. This is a deny allACL for bi-directional from any ip address. Once this is in place we should not see any
client packets egress the WLC after they have been placed into the RUN state by the WLC.
After the ACL in place any egress traffic for HREAP clients on your network should only be for clients stuck in the webauth_reqdstate.We will need a client from any of your remote networks connecting to your HREAP local switching SSID. Technically if we do not accept the webauth credentials for this client we should see the WLC place this client in the webauth_reqd state for 5 mins. This should give us enough time to analyze a packet leak for clients in this state.
I would like to get some clarification regarding the user idle timeout WLAN configuration checkbox. I read on here that if you don't configure a idle time-out value within the WLAN the global system parameter will be used instead (which is 300 ...
Hi team,I pulled report from NCS for AP utilization, it gives multiple instance for same AP in AP Client statistics summary. ANy specific reason why its giving multiple instance. We are fine if its give two, becaus eof readio but single AP gives for insta...
Hello for everybody. There is a network of 5 remote sites and a central data center. We plan to implement the following wifi scheme - there are two wlc 3504 (high availability - one active and one standby ) in the central dc, to which all ap 2800 ser...
Hi Friends I have more Cisco Ap(Air-Cap-2702 E-E-K9 int my company everthing is ok but i have 2 problem1) When some user connect to specialy one AP these users after 2-3 minute disconnect from wifi what is reason? 2.4Ghz and 5GHZ is active . i ...
When connecting to the wireless network I have noticed that the clients will often skip an AP 10 feet away and connect to one two floors up and 100+ feet away. That doesn't sound very efficient and data rates are pretty poor.Can this be fixed?My test clie...
