Ok so the location appliance setup is done via CLI.


A few things you need to know:


-make sure you dont have more than 5 minutes time offset on the clock between the location server and the WCS server

-make sure you are using a version of location server compatible with WCS. The way to check are the release notes

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6386/prod_release_notes_list.html


Setup Script: /opt/locserver/setup/setup.sh : this is to run the setup on your location server


Once that is done, make sure you can ssh to your location server and then you can add it to your WCS. You need to have at least a WCS+Location license for that to work.

You will use admin/admin as username password to connect to the Location server from WCS.


Other useful things from the CLI of the location server:


Version: cat /etc/locserver/conf/version.txt

Logs: /opt/locserver/logs

Install Log: /opt/locserver/Cisco_Wireless_Location_Appliance_InstallLog.log


Start location Appliance: /etc/init.d/locserverd start

Stop Location Appliance: /etc/init.d/locserverd stop

Check which WCS are connected to the location server: /etc/init.d/locserverd status

The command to run from the bin folder of wcs is ./StartWCS


If that doesnt help,check the log in opt/WCSx.x/webnms/logs/launchout.txt for errors.

License works by hostname.

TAC can rehost your license if needed, you need to open a case with us. Else roll back to the previous hostname and add it to your DNS.

WLC , Wireless LAn Controller? That is on GUI or CLI.

Not sure what you mean by Wireless Lan Locator.
