Blocked clients DON'T get blocked from the new autonomous networks

Was about to submit a case once I noticed previously blocked WLAN clients again appearing on a WLAN! Then realised that it was because I had changed the network type to autonomous - so obviously the client MAC addresses were not being checked with the ZD! I wonder what other effects this has? Device policies ignored? Rate restrictions ignored? I mean, blocking being ignored is pretty serious.

@Martin, thanks for sharing your observation. We're investigating.

I don't know that it's actually a fault as such... Seems to make sense that if a WLAN is autonomous from the Zone Director that it won't check policies held in the ZD. It's really just a warning I posted, rather than a complaint - but worth sharing "my" mistake so others don't make it.

... but it would be NICE to know WHICH policies ARE held in the autonomous WLAN?

Have noticed (since changing the WLAN back to Standard) that the supposedly "blocked device" is now caught in a trap of "failing authentication too many times" - so that's not normal behavious for a blocked device either.

(Blocked device is an Apple TV, BTW)
