Cisco WLC PSK Scheduled for Autogeneration

Hi All,

 

Is there a way to schedule Auto Generation of PSK for Guest WLAN in WLC or PI for every week/month?

 

We want to use  WPA+WPA2 layer2 security with PSK on our Guest WLAN with just a splash screen acknowledging our policy without user/name password.

Are you aware of any way to automate PSK key creation. We would like to be able to change it weekly or monthly.

 

Thanks and Regards,

CJ

I dont think that can be done.You must manually change the PSK key in WLC weekly.

May be some other experts have a solution of this :)

Thanks for the reply Sandeep.

Thanks for the reply Sandeep.

 

I might be able to use solarwinds scheduling utility to create 12 jobs to run on the first day of the month to make changes to the configuration.

It looks like this

 

 

Can you give me the CLI commands to change the PSK for WLAN-Guest (WLAN ID=3)

 

Thanks,

HI Jaganmohan,I never tried

HI Jaganmohan,

I never tried with solarwinds but u can try it and let us know.

 

Here is the commnds :

config wlan security wpa akm psk set-key {ascii | hex} psk-key wlan_id

Note: keys must contain 8 to 63 ASCII text characters or 64 hexadecimal characters.

Don't we need to disable WLAN

Don't we need to disable WLAN first to do changes to the Guest?

 

config wlan disable 3

config wlan security wpa akm psk set-key ascii psk-key 3

config wlan enable 3

save Config

yes

 

Even in this way, I need to manually change the PSK every week/month in the Script.

How about Cisco prime? Is there a way we can schedule the PSK change as backgroup script in PI?

 

Thanks,

CJ

 I never disable the wlan

 I never disable the wlan before changing the psk key.

WLC and PI can not generate PSK automaticall(As per my exp.)

You can check this :

Even in this , You have to go into the HiveManager to create the keys daily.
