I have WCS and WLC with 90 LWAP Access Points. I have integrated WCS and WLC and i am able to see all the LWAP in WCS GUI.
The requirement is, when ever some LWAPs are down, i want get an alert in some way to notify this. Now without knowing how to do this, i just seeing the total quantity and if some LWAP is off, i find difficult to find which one is down.
Can you please suggest me the suitable method to get the solution
for simplicity, u can try changing the names of the ap to their specific locations. plot the ap's to the map. once they're offline you'll see right away which ap's are down and where they are located, first by ap names and then by their current location.
this is best done before fixing the each ap. but still doable if the ap's are already fixed. you'll have more work, though.
have ur floor plan ready with the exact ap locations. write down the mac address as you fix the ap's. once the ap registers to the controller you can match it with the floor plan and change the name of the ap with its exact location. example Bldg1-GF-AP01-Lobby, Bldg1-GF-AP02-Lobby, Bldg1-1F-AP01-Reception... etc...
import the map to the WCS and assign the ap's accordngly.
you will know exactly which ap's are off and where they are exactly.
hope this helps!!!
