Pendng requests with 2 zonedirectors on network

  • Updated 3 years ago
I have 2 zonedirectors that run on my network, running 10 APs each but one of them is showing requests to attach to it from the APs that are already attached to the other one.

Is there a way t stop this? It looks untidy, not all of them mind, just a few for some reason.

I would suggest you read this great KB article that explains this behaviour.

I can't see the 'disable auto-allow' on the AP page of the zonedirector.

I have access point policies with 'Limited ZD Discovery'

The help file talks about redundancy a lot which we couldn't afford so we run 2 units with 12 license on each.

I have enabled the setting

Only connect to the following ZoneDirector: then Keep AP's Primary and Secondary ZD Settings.

Think this is right, its a bit ambiguous.

configure...access points...scroll down to access point policies and I see this



wonder why you are missing the first "approval" option? Are you on an old firmware?

I actually don't quite get what you are saying, but maybe there is another solution.

I would suggest you talk to someone about redundancy. You have the option of getting a fully licensed redundant ZD for the price of 1106 (about 1000$) by default, but since you have there 2 already maybe you can negotiate a purchase of one 25 AP licence and they could give you the same for the other.

But take this as advice only. I don't know what the original purchase intent and/or reason was, so don't hold me accountable for anything :)

Think I will go down this line thanks. I got a phone call support telling me a solution but it messed up when I did an upgrade.
