Precautions for Configuring the Roaming Function

  • A STA needs to roam between two APs, and the APs must have the same SSID and security policy profile (Names of security profiles can be different but configurations in the security profiles must be the same).
  • ARP entries on the access devices connected to the AP are not aged after users roam, which causes temporary service interruption. To prevent this problem, run the undo learn-client-address disable command in the VAP profile view on the central AP to enable STA address learning. The AP can then send gratuitous ARP packets to access devices to update ARP entries in a timely manner, ensuring nonstop services during roaming.

    By default, STA address learning is enabled.

  • IEEE 802.11r supports open system, WPA2-PSK, and 802.1x authentication.
  • The 802.11r fast roaming and Protected Management Frame (PMF) functions are mutually exclusive. If the 802.11r fast roaming function has been configured, the PMF function cannot be configured.
  • When 802.1x authentication is used for 802.11r, some STAs may get offline and online again during reauthentication due to compatibility issues if 802.1x reauthentication is enabled.
