I´m just forwarding this question for a friend of mine who can´t believe what his admins tell him....
If you have a medium size WCS based wireless installation and the WCS loses power, how long will it take for the whole system to be ready after power is back ?
The admins said something in the range of hours, which I personally find hard to believe.
I´m not sure if he´s talking about a planned reboot for OS upgrades etc or if they want to shut down the wireless part of the network for a give time (like on weekends etc). If the latter, I guess it would be easier to just shutdown all intefaces on all APs - is there some functionality like this ?
Sorry for the strange question, but I´m just a router / firewall guy and don´t want to give bad advice about cisco systems I´m not familiar with
