You have a bad WLC. You will have to RMA that. I have seen that in the past and others here have also went through the same thing. Open a TAC case and tell them that it was DOA and they will replace that with a new unit.

i have the same problem but i reboot and save config the device after months  when i got the 0 access points supported on WLC after reboot  all the new  configuration  weren't  saved only the old configuration from 2 to 3 months old 

and on AP i got the max no. of ap has reached 

and those AP that dis-joint were joint to wlc a day before 

the wlc supported 50 ap only 7 are joint and 11 were disjoint after 2 months 



If you make changes and save, then issue a reboot right after.  When the controller comes back online and the configuration is not there, then you have a bad controller and you need to get that replaced.
