Hi Keith,

I found a mistake in the release notes.
Version of the Zero-IT did not change from 9.7.0.0.220.

FYI: updated to 9.7.1.0.17 and running for 3 days now with no issues apparent in my relatively small (ZD +12APs) environment.

Could you teach me about the following issue's meaning?
5.1.16. Currently active client monitoring tables can now be sorted by AP name. (ID ER-1184)
Is "AP name" the same as Device name?

No and yes! If you edited your device name and AP name to be identical then Yes.
If like me you have given them different names then No. See pics for confirmation...note G2A(ASPIRE). So my AP name ids the "description". Confused, bet you are.

in monitor view - currently connected clients the AP name refers to the device name that is editable in... configure - access point.

Hi Max,
Thank you for the reply.
I understand it!
However, why don't you separate Device name and Description?

The APs don't move around and they are all same model. The craftroom AP lives on the ceiling of the craftroom. So kept description same as device name.

Just so happens that the G2A unit is new and I knew it previously as ASPIRE so that was descriptive to me! Totally your choice how you do these things.
Meaningful names help both me and the site staff when explaining problems and locations.

I’m sorry for not explaining sufficiently.
Why don't you separate Device name and Description (and MAC address) on Currently Active Clients columns?

Getting a bit off topic here.

The wording of the column headings in the ZD GUI could do with a small amount of housekeeping for consistency. If you want Ruckus to change it then put in a request.

Screenshot below shows that I leave out a column because in general it's just adding repetition (in my scenario). Location/description/device name are all very similar so no point seeing them all. On Location info I added initials of teaching staff who "own" the room. Minor but useful to me.

I understand your policy.
I think that there is no need to change it.

Thank you for the answer!

default MTU size set on ZoneDirector running on version 9.6. (ID ER-929)
I've used a version 9.7.0.0.220 on ZoneDirector.

5.1.18 An issue with Dynamic VLAN assignment failing due to changes in
the format of the called-station-id value between versions 9.6 and 9.7. (ID ER-1243)
I've used a version 9.6.2.0.13 and 9.7.0.0.220 on ZoneDirector.

5.1.21. An issue with Guest Access that could cause clients to get stuck in
a redirect loop when the management IP address is used for redirection. (ID

clients to remain connected after the configured session expiration time. (ID

This is a great conversation that's separate from the main topic, so I created a new topic to continue the discussion. Please reference the new topic here: How to reproduce issues described in the release notes

A software Refresh Release just posted? .30 vs .17? Is this something worth installing? Why is it here if 9.8 is coming out in a couple of days?
