Flash Light on LightWeight AP?

Answered Question
Jun 12th, 2009

Hello


Is there a way through the wireless contorller(5.2.178.0) to flash the light on a 1250 series lightweight AP that is managed by that controller?



I have about 8 - 9 1250's that got deployed on a 30 foot high ceiling and didnt get their MACs documented or any identification put on them before they were installed. Id like to be able to identify each one without having to take them down(they are in use) or dig up a 30 foot ladder.


thanks

Hi Eric,


Would turning the LED off one by one work?


I'm not sure if this works for the 1250, but maybe you could give it a try;


config ap led-state

To enable or disable the LED-State for an access point, use the config ap led-state command.


config ap led-state {enable | disable} {Cisco_AP | all}


Syntax Description

config

Display configurations.


ap

Advanced parameters.


led-state

Enable or disable the LED-State for an access point.


{enable | disable}

Enable or disable the access point's LED-State.


{Cisco_AP | all}

Name of a Cisco 1000 Series lightweight access point or all to specify all access points.

Hi Eric,


Great stuff! Thanks for letting us know this still works with the 1250 series.


Cheers!
