Could you give me some information on how the election process handled for this version? I want to know how the Unleashed determines who will be the next Master and how long it takes for it to acquire the credit to become the Master.
Its recommended to statically assign IP addresses to your APs, with one chosen as the Management IP so you can always reach the active Master AP when you open a browser (or define a local DNS hostname). Assign static IPs outside of the DHCP scope used for clients.
The internals of new Master AP selection is complex, but instantaneous in release 200.2 and later.
