Has anyone used the new WLC version 7.2.111.3 that addresses Windows 8  client interoperability? Any problems with it?

I’ve played around with all of the new codes that are supposed to take care of that and all of them are causing my 3500 and 3600 APs to be unstable and crash. They usually come right back, but it’s really annoying. I’ve got to put in a TAC, but I just haven’t had time. Anybody else have this problem? I’m running 5508s.

Hi Eric, Yes we had/have some problems in the 7.2.110.N code with our 3500 models wedging up. Very intermittent, LED is almost white, no console I/O and have to power off/on to bring back to life. TAC offered a lower version engineering build to fix and supposed to be fixed in 7.3.N code but not quite ready to upgrade yet. Currently running 7.2.110.8 on our 5508s thanks! jim On 10/10/2012 10:52 AM, Eric T.

I didn’t see it happen on any of my 3600s, but under 7.2.110.0 I was seeing intermittent crashes on my 3500s (using WiSM2s).  TAC suggested I try upgrading to 7.3.101.0 which I did Sunday, also they provided a debug image to load on my 3500s so that if it happens again they can grab more details.  It’s too early to tell if 7.3 fixes it though as it’s been Fall break the last couple days.

I bet that won’t fix it. I’m running 7.3.101.0 currently. Finally got my TAC case in. I’ll report what they come back with.

 

Thanks!

We are experiencing this issue with the 3600 series APs rebooting with several versions of the 7.2 code; currently running 7.2.110.10 of 5508 WLAC.  I have had a TAC case open for some time on this issue; swapping hardware/location did not make a difference.  Strangely, it seems to happen around the same time of day.
