Engineering Special WLC Code

Cisco TAC released an engineering special version of code for wireless LAN controllers last week which resolves numerous open caveats with the 6.0 train of code.

If you're running 6.0 and have noticed issues related to these resolved caveats, call Cisco TAC and inquire about this code version. It's not available on CCO.

Addendum Release Notes for Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers and Lightweight Access Points for Special Build AS_5500_6_0_196_159

Base Code:
Special Build: AS_4200_6_0_196_159
The code is designed for AIR-WLC5500
Filename: AS_4200_6_0_196_159.aes


AS_4200_6_0_196_159 is a build from, and it is an engineering special that resolves the following additional caveats:

CSCta13941 - AP rejecting association request with status code 13
CSCtb02136 - AP with AP Groups and HREAP will not broadcast SSID
CSCtb20125 - CCMP errors on key rotation
CSCtc73503 - Radios are showing Tx power level 0
CSCtd28542 - WLC crash on emWeb due to AP config change
CSCtd97011 - Radio core dump: Neighbor Discovery frames stuck
CSCte19262 - Client Deauthenticated – “Unable to locate AP 00:00:00:00:00:00”
