You mean the controller configuration files? In that case yes, you can run a background task for controller configuration backup and get this from your WCS FTP / TFTP folder. It will be an xml file.

How do I do that? I actually meant how do I get the config.txt file off of a particular AP but that would be interesting to know too.

Cheers

Background tasks are from Administration -> Background task

For AP, the configuration is pulled from the WLC and stored on the WCS database.

You can run a WCS backup from Start -> Program Files -> WCS -> Backup, this will make a copy of your whole WCS database including the AP and controller configuration that are stored at this time.

if I backup this way does it run as a background task. It won't stop any services will it?

what file format is it and what can i use to view it. I tried notepad and that's not it.

What I provided you with is how to save your AP configuration.

To view it, you need to use the WCS AP configuration menus.
