Mac Filtering Import

Hi everyone!

I was wondering if there was a way to import a large number of mac addresses into the MAC filtering of a Cisco WLC 4400. We recently purchased 150 new Mac laptops and I need to add them to the Mac filtering. I have 5 WLC's to do this to. If there is a process I sure would appreciate some steps on how to do this. I already have the MAC addresses and names in a spreadsheet.

Thanks!

Re: Mac Filtering Import

Since you have the Mac address, you can enter the mac address in the following command you can paste into the CLI of each wlc.

config macfilter add MAC_address wlan_id

If you don't know formulas that well using excel, attach your excel sheet an I will put it in another spreadsheet or text file so you can cut and paste into the CLI.

Mac Filtering Import

Thats what I needed. I was able to enter all the MAC's in a fraction of the time. A little editing in Excel and exporting to a CSV helped me achieve this in minimal time. Thanks for the reply and guidance!
