8500 WLC config lost after reboot

Level 4
Level 4

I am running 8.0.110 on a 8500 WLC.  After making a lot of config changes over the last month or so I rebooted the controller last night and none of the new config was there.  The only config on the WLC was everything prior to the changes.  Every time I made changes I was sure to use the save configuration feature from the GUI and each time I got the popup saying the config was successful. 

The main reason for the reboot was that I have been having a horrible time with the WLC as I have been getting messages all the time that "This page can't be displayed" and it didn't seem to matter which browser I was using.

Any suggestions as to how I can be certain the config has saved properly so I don't have to work thru the night to restore the config on a production WLC?

Hi Seth, 

Check the Release Notes, I think this could be a bug.  This is why this version has been classified as "Deferred" by Cisco.  My recommendation is to use
