Does AP are local mode or FlexConnect mode ? 2504 support AVC in local mode AP only.

 

Here is 8.5.135.0 release notes which is the last supported code (8.5.x) on that platform.

Key Features Not Supported in Cisco 2504 WLC

  • Domain-based ACLs

  • Autoinstall

  • Cisco WLC integration with Lync SDN API

  • Application Visibility and Control (AVC) for FlexConnect locally switched APs

  • Application Visibility and Control (AVC) for FlexConnect centrally switched APs


    Note

    AVC for local mode APs is supported.

Yes, you have FUS 2.0 on your 2504.

 

Pls confirm your AP are in Local mode & WLAN traffic are centrally switched.

Other WLCs support AVC also on Flexconnect. You can check this in the release notes, for example for 8.5.140.0:
https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/wireless/controller/release/notes/crn85mr4.html#key-features-not-supported-wlcs_85

2. yes this is correct, for historical you need a Cisco Prime Infrastructure.

Hello Rasika,

 

I have similar problem. I am running 8.5.161.0 version on cisco 2504 WLC. APs are running in local mode. I did enabled AVC on the QOS tab of the WLAN.

 

Thank you,

Ali Yassine

This could be a lot of reasons.
When you are in the Monitor -> Summary on the WLC, do you see any detected applications in the bottom right?
Under Wireless - Application and Visibility -> AVC Applications do you have applications listed there? And which Protocol Pack and Engine Version is shown?

There is no licence for using AVC.

I had the same problem, I updated the FUS (Field Upgrade Software).

Did you try it ?

FUS upgrade require if you have FUS 1.9.0.0 version

 

"If you are using a Cisco 2500 Series controller and you intend to use the Application Visibility and Control (AVC) and NetFlow protocol features, you must install Release 1.9.0.0 of Cisco Wireless LAN Controller FUS."

 

In this case, FUS already 2.0, so no FUS upgrade required to get AVC working

 

"Verify the bootloader version by entering the command show sysinfo. The output displays the following line only if FUS 2.0 is installed.
Bootloader Version................... 1.0.20

Hi,

 

Yes after doing AP local mode it works. 

 

Thanks all. 

 

Few questions I have now. 

1. AVC supports on AP local mode not on flex connect

So is this applicable for 2504 wlc or other higher versions too?

 

2.AVC only shows live user data statistics not historical, right? 

Other WLCs support AVC also on Flexconnect. You can check this in the release notes, for example for 8.5.140.0:
https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/wireless/controller/release/notes/crn85mr4.html#key-features-not-supported-wlcs_85

2. yes this is correct, for historical you need a Cisco Prime Infrastructure.
