need to swith allmy AP from 1 WLC to the backup one

Hello,

I have 2 WLC: 1 primary and 1 bckp.

How can i do to switch temporarly all my APs which are attached to the Primary to the Backup WLC?

a reboot is it the only way?

 

In fact i need to add the Country code for Japan, and in order to do that, i need to stop the radio 802.11 A and B, that will cause a lot's of problem if i keep the AP on this controler. This is the reason why i need to change those AP to the bck controler....

Tx for your answer.

B

Hi,You do not need to reboot

Hi,

You do not need to reboot the primary WLC.

Just configure the primary wlc ip of backup as per this post.

Wireless > Access Points > All APs > Select AP > High Availability Configuration and put IP and name of backup as primary.

Hi,If you have WCS or NCS

Hi,

If you have WCS or NCS(Prime INfra) then it would probably be easy to just push a new AP Configuration template which sets the primary WLC (and IP) to be Bckp. You can always push the template back to correct the configuration when you are ready.

I dont thik so there is any other way to do it.

The fastest way is to use CLI.

I do not have Prime or any other tool except the WLC.

The command to move an AP from one WLC to another WLC (using CLI) is:  

 

config ap primary-base [WLC name] [AP Name] [WLC Management IP address]

 

So what you do is put all of your AP names in a spreadsheet and concatenate.  Once the complete command is generated, you cut-and-paste into the CLI and watch the APs move to the 2nd WLC.
