Cisco 5508 WLC - Configuring multiple Access Points

Hi all...

On a Cisco 5508 running 7.4.110, is it possible to configure the AP Mode on multiple acess points. I have around 15 new APs, but don't particularily want to go into each indiviual one to change the AP Mode from Local to FlexConnect.

Can't see anyting under Global Configuration for this... although I suppose CLI is another option?

Thanks

Tony

There isn't a way to do that. You would have to change each one either through the GUI or the CLI. The Flex7500 does that only because it supports only FlexConnect AP's.

Thanks Scott.

I suppose I'd have to go through all of them anyway to set the hostname and location! :-)

I use linux tools for stuff like this. ie, using awk, if you had a list of just ap names in a file, you could take the output of the following and paste into CLI:

awk '{print "config ap mode se-connect",$1;print "y"}' apfile.txt

or the same, except grabbing a list of currently joined AP's from the WLC and using that:

snmpwalk -v2c -c 1.3.6.1.4.1.14179.2.2.1.1.3 |

awk -F "\"" '{print "config ap mode se-connect",$2;print "y"}'
