Description (partial)

Older 17/27/3700 APs with SHA1 only MIC cannot join C9800 running 16.12.2s. When AP attempts to join C9800, WLC continues to send SHA2 cert resulting in bad certificate error and dTLS teardown by AP.

On C9800, there is SHA1 MIC present. However, 9800 does not failover to using SHA1 MIC in response to AP using SHA1 MIC. This would be desirable behavior.

Further, as part of CSCvp34245, the config command to tie wireless management to CISCO_IDEVID_SUDI trustpoint was blocked. As a result, user cannot manually tie SHA1 trustpoint to wireless management interface.

WLC9800(config)#wireless management trustpoint CISCO_IDEVID_SUDI_LEGACY
% switch-1:dbm:wireless:Default Cisco SUDI trustpoint name is not allowed

Ask here: 9800 should switch to using SHA1 cert automatically. If intent is not to support SHA1 APs, then we need a customer facing doc stating the same.
