We have Catalyst 9800-40 WLAN controllers and 90 Catalyst 9120AXI access points. Three weeks ago we upgraded from 17.3.3 to 17.3.4c. But instead of fixing a bug, it got exchanged with a new one: Since then all the WLAN clients can't communicate with each other. The WLAN is configured for central switching. Now it behaves like peer-blocking is enabled, but we had it disabled on purpose. It's an office wlan with 802.1x authentication and not a public wlan. Connectivity between wireless and wired LAN works fine.
Traffic analysis shows that the access point does not reveal the MAC addresses of other WLAN clients when one wants to reach them. Even two clients connected to the same access point can't communicate to each other.
Anyone else having this issue or are we the first one to upgrade to 17.3.4c?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Understood re:2700. Note 2800 are still fine on 17.6 which we have found to be very stable so far. 17.6 is the next extended support release too so only a matter of time before it gets the star.
And as we've seen with 17.3 the star releases can actually end up having serious problems although they are a good overall guideline.
Summary: This was finally the fix that brought intra WLAN client comminication back to life after the update:
