Is there anyway to have or configure a Hot-Standby Root Bridge for Autonomous AP1242?

My purpose of hahving this is to have a more resilience in case the Active Root Bridge is faulty on the backhaul side.

In order to have more resilience backhaul for the backhaul bridging part, my thinking is to configure the Non Root bridges as WGB infrastructure mode and Root Bridges as AP.

Any suggestions are welcome :)

When you set up the standby access point, you must enter the MAC address of the access point that the standby unit will monitor. Record the MAC address of the monitored access point before you configure the standby access point.

The standby access point also must duplicate several key settings on the monitored access point. These settings are:

• Primary SSID (as well as additional SSIDs configured on the monitored access point)

• Default IP Subnet Mask

• Default Gateway

• Data rates

• WEP settings

• Authentication types and authentication servers

Check the monitored access point and record these settings before you set up the standby access point.

I hope it may help you.

If I'm not wrong, Hot-Standby only available for AP mode and not on Bridge mode.
