Any ideas why my SonicPoint NDR's stops allowing connections after a few days of activity?
Posted on 2014-11-05
I've been working on an issue with Sonicwall technical support for awhile and am hoping to get a few new ideas here.
I have a Sonicwall NSA 3600 and a bunch of SonicPoint NDR's provisioned for wireless.
The issue is, after a few days of use during which everything is working absolutely normal, a SonicPoint just drops all connections and does not allow anyone to connect. I have to reboot the SonicPoint and then it comes back online and all is well again.
I have my Sonicwall WLAN setup on X10, and it is plugged into an HP Procurve switch, the same physical switch that my X0 is plugged into. I created VLANs for the provisioning traffic to go over VLAN 10, and setup other VLAN IDs 20 (2.4ghz Corporate), 30 (2.4ghz Guest internet), 25 (5ghz Corporate) and 35 (5ghz guest). My VLAN 10 traffic is untagged on the X10 port, and the rest tagged.
One thing I have noticed, is that it is the same 2 SonicPoint NDR's. The same group of users connect to these SonicPoints, and migrate between the two. I have 6 others SonicPoint NDR's that have not yet went offline, however they are underutilized in comparison to the 2 that keep dropping. I'd say at any given time, I have 12 users on a SonicPoint that goes down which doesn't seem like alot.
Any suggestions why the SonicPoints are going offline?
