Weighing whether to go to 7.6.1 over holiday break in anticipation of a 3700 AP deployment in March. Cisco has implied it’s quite stable and described it loosely as the stable 7.4.110 code + just enough new stuff to accommodate 3700s (release notes seem to imply more though, from feature add perspective). For us, it’s do it now or push it out into the semester which can be a bit ugly.
 
Are there any beta sites that can comment on the new code- either on list or off?
 
 
Thanks-

I’ll wait until 7.4MR2 arrives which it should within the next days.

There are still a few bugs in the 7.4.100 (MR1) code that has bitten us badly.

Thanks, Anders. The 3700 APs require 7.6 and we have a new large building coming up, hence the need and request for beta site testimony (and there are a couple of edu beta sites).

I’d be interested in this as well.  I’ve got a new deployment coming up, and I believe it’s 3702’s as well. 

 

I'll be doing it before semester starts again. I'm facing bugs in 7.5 and was told that 7.5 will not get any MR releases, while 7.6 will.

I haven't specified a change window yet, but will be happy to share my results after the upgrade. Non-global EAP-timer customization will be nice, but the "open caveats" are scary as usual. 
I also have 3700 & 1530's coming, so need the support.

FYI:   Ver 7.4MR2 is now out (Finally!).

 

So the choice is between the more stable 7.4MR2 and the newer features 7.6.

 

Now you got to yourself one simple question: Do you feel lucky? Well, do you….p**k!   ;)

 

Cheers and Marry X-mas to all.

Message from dannyeaton@rice.edu

So, did anyone upgrade to 7.6.100.0 WLC code?  How’s that going?  I’ve upgraded my lab HA cluster, and currently running 7.5.102.0 in production (2 HA clusters, for about a month or so, without problems as yet on 1252, 1142, and 3502 APs).  We’ve got 3702’s coming (new building opening at the end of the month), and I’d like to review with someone who has 7.6.100.0 in production, preferably in an HA environment.
