I have a couple of Cisco WLC 5508 systems. They are set up as follows:

  • System A: (Mgmt IP (Redundancy Mgmt Ip SSO Mode ENABLED
  • System B: (Mgmt IP (Redundancy Mgmt Ip SSO Mode DISABLED

FWIW, I have a Cat5e cable run between the two redundant ports.

My problem is that I can ping all addresses above, except My question is whether this is expected or not. If I'm not supposed to be able to ping, then under what conditions should I be able to ping it?

1 Answer 1


The redundancy management address is only pingable if the controller is configured in SSO mode.
