Cluster Failover Expectations
« on: April 06, 2015, 05:44:31 PM »
Hey everyone, hope everyone is doing well. Just wanted to get some peoples thoughts with this.

We recently installed two RFS 6000 controllers with WING 5.5.5, they run active/standby. We tested the failover and the transition took about 2-4 minutes before all AP's successfully moved over and wireless connectivity resumed. That seems like an awful long time, i really expected it to be more seamless. Anyone else have similar experience?

Thanks,
Todd

Hello.

I recommend you to use your controller in Active/Active mode, with this you can load balance your AP's.

How are the Hold time and HeartBeat Period configured ?

We have two RFS6000 in active/active running wing 4.3 and the failover is very fast.

We use HeardbeatPeriod = 5 sec
HoldTime = 15 sec
And we use a vlan for AP's.

Sry about my english  :'(

Thanks for the response. We actually had it in a active/active but when we had an issue Motorola/Zebra support said the active/active cluster is not a supported topology and we needed to move to active/standby. We can take a look at the settings you mention, thanks!
