Description (partial)


1230/1240/1250 Series APs join WLC in Bridge Mode, rather than the configured mode, whether local or H-REAP.  


WiSM Running WLC code  AP Joins WLC, AP will join as Bridge.  Changing any settings to the AP will generate the following errors:

"Failed to disable ethernet bridging."
"Failed to set backhaul interface for RootAP"

Changing the AP to local or H-REAP mode and rebooting does not correct the issue.
