We have a legacy system that we need to keep running a while longer with a ZD 3000 and outdoor mesh that should be upgraded from 9.6.2. to 9.7.2.
When you download 9.7.2 firmware from Ruckus there is a disclaimer to the effect that ZD and the APs will periodically connect to Ruckus to report serial numbers, support status, etc.
In our case everything runs on a private subnet that won't by default allow outbound communication with Ruckus. My question is, given this, will the software otherwise function normally? Or is the reporting required for ZD to work with 7.6.2?
