Hi!

We've 36 cisco lightweight access-points. After typing "show cdp neighbours" on switch they all are connected, I see:

Port Device-ID Port-ID Platform

-------- ------------------------------- ------------------------- ------------

1/1 kv-po-4ap10.cisco.com FastEthernet0 cisco AIR-AP1242AG-E-K9

1/29 kv-po-4ap8.cisco.com FastEthernet0 cisco AIR-AP1242AG-E-K9


How can I change domain name from cisco.com to my local domain?

Also there is a problem to configure domain server IP address on LAP and controller.


Any ideas will be greatly appreciated!

The ap's will get the local domain from DHCP. Set it up on your dhcp server and that should do it for you.

And there is no way to configure it statically?

I think that dynamic configuration such type of devices is not a best way, because it can make troubles in situation of dhcp server mailfunction or smth like this.

I've tried to issue controller command "config ap static-IP add domain all ".

But still in AP config I don't see any changes.

Well since you have static ip on the LAP's that command should work. What error do you get when you try to enter the command. Did you reboot the ap after initiating that command?

The most interesting that I don't get any errors.

When I'm doing ssh on AP, I see this:

Have you resolved this problem? I'm experiencing the same problem even though I'm doing DHCP with reservations and domain names.

No, I haven't. I'm going to open TAC case on Cisco.

I'll inform you as soon as I'll know something new.

not sure why it didn't post my previous reply, but it appears that your access points are running in autonomous mode. That's from the output of show CDP neighbors. A lightweight AP will have "LAP" in it's name, an autonomous AP will have "AP" (AIR-LAP1242G-A-K9 VS. AIR-AP1242G-E-K9). Also, output of a lightweight AP when you SSH to it is very limited. I am not sure if you can SSH/Telnet to them. You probably need to migrate your APs to LAP mode.


To change domain in autonomous AP, do "ip domain name yourdomain" in global config.

Hello, Vlad.

No, this AP's are autonomous from the box, but all are already "upgraded" to lightweight mode.

CDP shows model name aside from the image they are running. And their model is AIR-AP1242.
