Cisco Wireless 5508 HA/Redundancy
Posted on 2014-08-28
I have 2 5508 controllers both with 25 AP licenses and the APs are configured on the HA tab to point to Controller 1 and then line 2 is Controller 2. I am wondering what this offers me for protections if one of my controllers goes down?
I was looking at a document on configuring for HA (version 7.3) and I don't have redundancy currently configured or a cable between the 2 units. I am not sure about this because I understand I would need to do these things:
1. Connect cable (Ethernet for RP)
2. Configure Redundancy Primary IP and Secondary IP as well as enable SSO.
3. However I am confused on the licensing as it says I need:
A. ONE WLC AP count license and other HA sku (I am pretty sure given my config this isn't
B. Both with valid AP counts however I'd need 50 licenses on both APs?
C. One WLC has an Evaluation and the other HA SKU (this is not me)
Any guidance would be great!
