Error Message    Information Group rad_acct: Radius server <ip address> is responding 
again (previously dead). Error Group rad_acct: No active radius servers found. Id 
106.

Explanation    This message is seen if the radius-server deadtime 10 command is configured on the access point. This command is configured to set an interval during which the access point does not attempt to use servers that do not respond. This avoids the time needed to wait for a request to time out before trying the next configured server. A Radius server marked as dead is skipped by additional requests for the duration of the minutes unless all servers are marked dead. Configuring a dead time of 10 minutes for the Radius server means that the server cannot be used for 10 minutes.

Recommended Action    You can disable this command if you want this log to disappear. This message does not indicate a major problem, it is just an informational log.

Error Message    Saving this config to nvram may corrupt any network management or 
security files stored at the end of nvram. Continue? [no]: 

Explanation    This warning message displays on the access point CLI interface while saving configuration changes through the CLI. This is due to insufficient space in flash memory. When a radio crashes, .rcore files are created. These files indicate a firmware or a hardware problem in the radio, although a hardware problem is less likely.

Recommended Action    This warning message can be prohibited by removing the rcore files generated in flash memory. The rcore files have a .rcore extension. The files can be deleted because they simply show that the radio went down at some point. The .rcore files can be listed on the CLI session and appear similar to this:

r15_5705_AB50_A8341F30.rcore
