Description
While debugging wireless client connection or random disconnection issues, it is often helpful to view the station log for errors.
This article describes how to collect the activity of a specific client/station based on its MAC address.

Solution
When thereis a  VDOM configured on FortiGate/FortiWiFi, it is necessary to be in global mode to execute station-log commands.

- Get into global mode.
# Config global
- Reset previous debug filters.
# diagnose debug reset
- Clear station MAC filters.
# diagnose wireless-controller wlac sta_filter clear
- Add MAC client filter.
# diagnose wireless-controller wlac sta_filter <MAC> <verbose>
# diagnose debug enable
Example:
# diagnose wireless-controller wlac sta_filter 2c:4d:54:bd:5d:56 255
# diagnose debug enable
- Once the issue is recreated, disable the logging using below commands:
# diagnose debug disable
# diagnose debug reset
