In WCS 5.0 Cisco introduces Auto provisioning of WLCs.
Unfortunately there is not much documentation available, except for option explanation.
If i understood this right, Auto-Provisioning takes care of the initial setup of an out-of-the-box WLC. A very handy solution for wide spread WAN environment.
Has anyone here been working with this option, and can direct me into the right direction?
I try to auto-provide initial setup parameters from my WCS 18.104.22.168 to a WLC 4402 running 22.214.171.124 on a factory default configuration.
I hooked up the WLC with his glasfiber and his management port to our management vlan and also configured DHCP on one of the switches for our management vlan.
WCS is also hooked up to this management vlan.
I created filters, in WCS for either Serial No. and MAC-ADDRESS providing required parameters for initial setup.
Those filters remain idle, and the WLC doesn't recieve an IP-address from the DHCP scope configured.
Am i missing something? Do i like this function to do things it is not supposed to do?
Please let me know if someone had better experience.
