Description (partial)

The CAPWAP data tunnel on AP 2600/3600 in 7.5 gets stuck.

Data encryption is enabled to leverage data keep-alive and re-establish the CAPWAP tunnel in case the NAT/PAT translation expires, but in some cases the keep-alives are lost and the tunnel stays down (no self-recovery); at the same time the CAPWAP control tunnel is up and the AP shows as UP; from the FlexConnect standpoint the AP also shows as connected.

When clients try to connect they are deauthenticated once the (re)association timeout happens (the AP doesn't get the (re)association response from the WLC as the data tunnel is down).

When this happens the AP logs show the following message every minute:
%CAPWAP-3-ERRORLOG: Warning, data keep-alive failed, ignore data keep-alive timeout

- AP 2600/3600
- code
- APs in FlexConnect mode w/ data encrytpion enable
- NAT/PAT between AP and WLC
