Why would an AP that successfully discovers a WLAN controller be denied from joining that WLC?

  • The WLC has a software release downloaded on it that is different from the lightweight AP software.
  • The WLC already has the maximum number of APs joined to it.
  • The name of the WLC is different from the pre-configured name on the Cisco lightweight AP.
  • The WLC is configured to be the standby WLC in an SSO group.
Explanation & Hint:

A WLC will deny an AP from joining it if the maximum number of lightweight APs already joined to it has already been reached.
