HiPath Wireless Controller system states and LEDs
The HiPath Wireless Controller has the two system states: Standby and Active.
It enters "Standby" when shut down in the HiPath Wireless Controller Configuration – System
Maintenance screen. The HiPath Wireless Controller:
●
sends control message to Wireless AP to enter "Standby" state
●
will not handle any wireless traffic or sessions
●
disables DHCP, Policy Manager, Security Manager, Wireless AP Manager, Redirector
●
remains on the wired network
It enters "Active" state on startup in the user interface. The HiPath Wireless Controller can now
respond to the Wireless AP's "discover" message by returning a message that the Wireless AP
can enter the "active" state.
The activity and traffic on the HiPath Wireless Controller can be monitored via three LEDs on
the back of the HiPath Wireless Controller: Link, Status, Activity.
The three LEDs perform the following functions:
●
Link LED: Displays the link status of management port Ethernet link as seen by the system
software.
●
Status LED: Indicates the state of the CM from software point of view, normal operation,
whether processes have gone down and are restarting, etc.
●
Activity LED: Indicates the amount of traffic carried to and from Wireless APs.
The Link LED is only seen at the back of the HiPath Wireless Controller. The Status and Activity
LEDs can be seen from both the front and the back of the HiPath Wireless Controller.
