CLI command to show AP to the controller

Unanswered Question
Jul 19th, 2010

We have just bought a 2100-controller for lab purposes. We were planning to run them independently of the rest of the network (i.e. only Controller and AP without contact with the regular DHCP-server) but how do I configure the AP so that it finds the controller?

I know that there is a way to use the CLI to but even though I have been looking I haven't found the right command.

if the APs are LWAPP then there is no extra commands.. The AP will join the controller automatically if the AP is getting the right IP address.

To check the number of APs on the controller we use "sh ap summary" command on the WLC CLI

It's called "High Availability" 5.X, 6.X and 7.X firmware.

If you don't know what is your AP name, on the WLC, run the command "sh ap summary".

CLI command to use on the  WLC is "config ap primary-base ".

If you want the AP to join a controller, the command is "lwapp ap controller ip address ".
