WLC: Configuring Global Credentials for Access Points

Unanswered Question

I have an WLC 4404 running Software Version with 40 LWAPPs (1242AG, some 1231G). I want to configure global credentials for the LWAPPs. The configuration guide did not mention, if I have to reboot the LWAPPs after setting the credentials.

So, could I set this option during operation time? Thanks a lot for your help.

Configuring the "Override global credentials" option in the GUI does not reboot the AP. It can be done in a production environment, just did it on one of my 1252s to test.

Hope it helps.
