Hi Abhinav,

If ZD are in cluster or Smart redundancy mode and at any point of time, AP are talking to one ZD ONLY so i don't understand your comment "two ZD on two floor"

Any specific reason for keeping 1st ZD at X floor and 2nd ZD at Y floor?

I am assuming lots of things with limited info about the issue at the moment hence your issue should not happen.

May i know which version of firmware?
Is WLAN with captive portal and AD etc? If yes, WLAN with open or WPA, do you see this issue?

hope this helps

A ZoneDirector "cluster" is called Smart Redundancy, where you have two ZDs (that
can be on different switches/floors). One ZD is in Active mode, and one ZD is in
Standby mode. All APs are managed by the Active ZD, so Clients roaming between
APs will all be connected to your Active ZD, that maintains session information, so
that they will not have to re-authenticate.
