Hi Ricardo,

Using the CLI, follow these steps to configure primary, secondary, and tertiary controllers for a specific access point and to configure primary and secondary backup controllers for a specific controller.


Step 1 To configure a primary controller for a specific access point, enter this command:

config ap primary-base controller_name Cisco_AP [controller_ip_address]


Note The controller_ip_address parameter in this command and the next two commands is optional. If the backup controller is outside the mobility group to which the access point is connected (the primary controller), then you need to provide the IP address of the primary, secondary, or tertiary controller, respectively. In each command, the controller_name and controller_ip_address must belong to the same primary, secondary, or tertiary controller. Otherwise, the access point cannot join the backup controller.


Step 2 To configure a secondary controller for a specific access point, enter this command:

config ap secondary-base controller_name Cisco_AP [controller_ip_address]

Step 3 To configure a tertiary controller for a specific access point, enter this command:

config ap tertiary-base controller_name Cisco_AP [controller_ip_address]


Hope this helps!
