WCS in monitor maps, any way to see SSID that AP is broadcasting

Answered Question

Hello,


In Cisco WCS (7.0.230.0), does anyone know if there is any way to show what SSIDs an LWAPP is broadcasting? I can see the SSIDs assigned to the group that the AP is a part of through the controller or templates, but is there an easy way to see what SSID an LWAPP is broadcasting maybe using the MONITOR > MAP or anything?


Maybe there is an easier way than using WCS?


Thank you for your time,


Steve

ok.  In that, I trust the AP Group config on the WLC.  To my knowledge, seeing the SSID that are being serviced is not available in the Maps.

Can you clarify a bit what you mean? Are you looking to see what the AP is servicing or literally what SSID is broadcast/guest-mode?

Steve,


Thank you for your reply on this matter. 


What I'm hoping to find is a way after you assign an AP group name to an access point, so it knows what SSIDs to broadcast, is there a way while looking at the map of APs in WCS for a floor to show that the AP is actually broadcasting the SSIDs specified in the group without physically being at the location or do you just trust the Controller and the group that you assign that the AP is indeed broadcasting the SSIDs? 


Thank you again,


Steve

Steve,


Again, thank you for your response.  I will put more trust into WCS and the controllers as I continue to grow and learn about them.


Thank you,


Steve
