WLC 5508 Cant get access via the Mgmt Interface

Post by Guest » Sun Dec 26, 2010 5:03 am

Hello everybody,

 

i have a wlc 5508 version 7.0.98.0 , if im pinging the service port interface or try to get access via this interface, everythings is fine, but if cant get access via the management interface. (but its pingable)

 

the crazy thing is, that the LAP joined successful ti the wlc, but the Upgradetool (converting an AP to an LAP) doesnt work, because the tool cant reach the mgmt interface of the wlc.

 

there are no ACLs, which are blocking the traffic between wlc and my computer

 

Does anyone has an idea, what ive configured wrong???

 

regrads,

 

Rocco

Is your PC on the same VLAN as the service port?  If so that could be the issue.  The HTTP request to the controller goes to the managment interface IP but the reply is coming out of the service port.

no my Pc isnt in the same VLAN, but the communication between Service port and my Pc is working. So if the response comes out of the Service port it has to working, to?! Or did i understand something wrong?

The controller routes packets similar to a mulit-homed PC.  If your PC was on the same VLAN as the service port packets destined to it would go out the service port.  If your PC is on a different subnet then packets should be coming out of the management interface.

 

Would it be possible for you to post the output of "show interface summary" from the controller and "show run int gx/x" for the switchport the controller is connected to?

Interface Name                   Port Vlan Id  IP Address      Type    Ap Mgr Guest
-------------------------------- ---- -------- --------------- ------- ------ -----
wlan1                                   1    16       172.16.2.10      Dynamic No     No
management                         1    2        172.16.1.10      Static     Yes    No
wlan2                                   1    220      172.16.3.10   Dynamic No     No
service-port                        N/A  N/A      10.75.100.99      Static     No     No
virtual                                N/A  N/A      1.1.1.1               Static     No     No

 

 

and my Pc is in the 172.16.4 subnet

 

i have no access to the switch port, where the controller is connected to, but i know that this port permits access to the vlans which are used
