I have a customer that installed several APs in the ceiling but forgot to to document the Mac address to location name for documentation. Now they want to rename the APs from their default mac address AP name to the actual location where they are installed. Is there a good way to figure this information out without actually tracing the ethernet connection from the IDF patch panel back to the APs? I've done show cdp neigh and I know which AP mac address connected to a switchport, but I dont' know how to locate where it's actually installed in the ceiling? Any ideas?
I would do what Leo mentioned and disable and enable the LED. But first, you should use a tool like AirMagnet or inSSIDer to find the closest AP, to help determine a few AP's that it might be. It will be quicker that way.
I like this process, but some APs are hidden or inside drop ceilings. With that said, could I ssh into the AP and then do show cdp neigh on the cli? Wouldn't it should me what switch and port its connected to? Also, I could use InSSIDer to narrow in on the search.
