WLAN override ::: how to use it smart?

Unanswered Question

All, I have an existing WLAN with more than 100APs. I now want to add one guest-WLAN SSID to four APs.

Now, as I understand the procedure I would need to do the following:

1. define the new SSID globally and enabled it

2. go manually to all the remaining 96 APs and use WLAN override to diable the new guest network where it should not be.

Is there any other way which could save me from modifying 96 APs by hand?

If you have WCS and are using LWAPP you can just make a template for WLAN override and apply it to the APs you wish to modify.

I'm not sure if you can use a template without WCS, though- I haven't tried.

Thanks for your reply. How would I do that? I thought the templates are only for radio properties. I have not found a WLAN override option in the templates.

Hi Joerg!

Scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see the options for WLAN override. I had the same question and understand your plight.

Hope this helps.

It is in the ap templates on the bottom of the screen I believe on the bottom right. You do have WCS????
