windows clients are connecting to two different SSID's while roaming

Hi Experts, We have controller based set-up with intra mobility.. We had one SSID configured with auth and encrytion as WPA-TKIP however we wanted to introduce one SSID for 802.11n support client to check the performance with .11n so instead of deleting we introduced one new SSID with same vlan and same dynamic interface .both SSID are working fine but now we are seeing that client when roaming ,they are connecting to old SSID instead of new SSID ...client machine is windows 8 and some are 7 new said is configured with WPA2-aes. My concern as why client is jumping to old SSID while roaming between AP's...couldd you guide me to trobleshoot this issue?

is one WLAN broadcasting and one "hidden"?

 

Windows has a tendency to prefer a broadcasted SSID to one that is not broadcasted.

In the client make sure that the new ssid u preference is the first ssid in the profile list. This is preferred as well from the client. We did the migration as well and it works fine for us.
