I tried that and same result on IPAD 2. Airplay icon not being displayed. I also uploaded 22.214.171.124 to the WLC5500 and the issue is resolved so IPAD 2 can display the Airplay Icon but now this WLC reboot bug on that version does not allow me to install it.
When you say (WLC reboot bug on that version does not allow me to install it.)
What you are trying to install?
If you are trying to downgrade to 7.6.130 or upgrade to 8.0.115 you could try to disable 2 things to help you make it more stable (since this thread points the reboot problem to 2 possibles causes : 1- Webauth problem or 2- 'Bonjour -mdns' problem).
Try temporary (during the time of your upgrade/downgrade:
1- disable webauth on your SSIDs.
2- disable mDNS.
What I tried to say is the following:
Airplay Icon is not displayed on IPAD 2 OS 8.1.X or 8.2.X when you have WLC 5500 running version 126.96.36.199. We have thousands IPAD 2 devices on the network that were running OS 7 but once they were upgraded to 8.1.2 or above, Apple TV service stopped working (Airplay Icon no more available). We have a lab environment exactly the same as production and I tested 188.8.131.52 on the WLC 5500 and Apple TV issue is solved BUT with the "reboot" bug detected on that version for WLC 5500, i cannot upgrade my devices in production because that could affect our 30K+ endusers connections.
Unfortunately we cannot disable webauth because is the AUTH mecanism being used. In fact, we are using the old LWA and trying to move into CWA but another issue I have is that the customized html files for CWA provided by Cisco, specifically the SUCCESS HTML File on ISE Version 184.108.40.2069 patch 8 does not work properly for IPAD 2 (I opened another post but nobody has answered to it) and I am running 220.127.116.11 patch 3 on ISE.
Everything was working fine when the IPAD 2 were running OS 7, now Apple says this is a Cisco problem when they actually were who made this mess after their latest OS Upgrades on Apple Devices.
Based on the information from an Apple.com forum I found, I tried different WLC configurations. The first one was only enabling Apple TV service on the mDNS configuration part of the WLC. Then I tried Apple TV + Airtunes, later Apple TV + Airtunes and Airprint with nothing else. Same result Airplay Icon on IPAD 2 not available for mirroring.
So with v18.104.22.168 all the iPAD2 with iOS 8 doesn't work (AirPlay). With any other code, it works?
In production, once IPAD 2 were upgraded to version 8.1.x or 8.2.x they stopped displaying Airplay Icon, our WLC 5508 are running 22.214.171.124.
I went to the lab and tested 126.96.36.199 (as suggested by Cisco TAC) on the WLC 5508 we have in there and Airplay/Apple TV on IPAD 2 worked fine (however I have not checked what FUS I have in the Lab WLC). I just install the 188.8.131.52 code into the WLC.
We already have 8510 in production running 184.108.40.206 and installed new ones running 220.127.116.11 with a few AP register to them in order to check the stability of this new WLC code, but based on this post now we are not completely convinced to move massive AP into the new 8500 even though you said you have not seen any reboot issue on them running 18.104.22.168
No, Airplay has nothing to do with the controller reset.
Airplay issue is fixed on version 22.214.171.124 for WLC 5508, unfortunately this version cannot be installed due to the reload bug.
It's bizarre that Cisco is not making the fix generally available, making everyone get an escalation build 110.9 to deal with the widespread reboots. Take no nonsense, and demand they give you the fix without dumping hours into gathering logs, etc.
Hi Eglinsky, could you please let me know what is the version you are running on the IPAD 2?. I tried 126.96.36.199 and I could not see the airplay icon on the IPAD 2 but on the IPAD4 was fine.
Could you give me some clues about the way you configured the mDNS?. Maybe there is something that I configured in the WLC that has to be changed.
I will send you later today what I enabled on the WLC for Bonjour/Apple TV.
Abraham, our iPad 2s are running iOS 8.2 and we've never had issues with them connecting to the 5508, regardless of the iPad or WLC OS.
I am told that AirPlay is not supported on the iPad 2s because they do not have the correct version of Bluetooth.
