WLC 5508 management

I have never needed to pull a config from my 5508's till now.

I have been trying out the WLC Config Analyzer app and it inputs the sh run-config output.

I have yet to find the command to turn off the "more" line brake in 7.4.110.0 code.  In a 7mb file, it is a lot of space bar strokes!

I tried to use the Controller Transfer commands to tftp the config (comma delimited, very short WLCCA fails) or running-config (visually normal but premature end).

Where does one configure and AP to send its syslog to a specific target?

HI,

Type "config paging disable" in priviledged mode to set your terminal to display without any breaks.

Hi David,

If you have a TFTP server setup then you can take a config backup of your WLC by issuing following commands on your WLC CLI.

transfer upload datatype config

transfer upload path .

transfer upload filename 20140212-WLC01.txt

transfer upload serverip

transfer upload mode tftp

transfer upload start

y

If you have a FTP server with username/password to access it then you can use FTP method as well

transfer upload datatype config

transfer upload path .

transfer upload filename 20140212-WLC01.txt

transfer upload serverip

transfer upload mode ftp

transfer upload username

transfer upload password

transfer upload start

y

Re: WLC 5508 management

Sandeep,  thank you.  that made the result much cleaner.

Riska,

I tried the Transfer routines but the resulting config is in a format that is not readable by the WLCCA, and the resulting running-config (in clear text) is ends half way thru as compaired to the console screen dump..

but with paging disabled it is a non-issue.

Thank you

Hi David,

Yes WLCCA only accept "show run-config" output. Here is the all information about WLCCA

https://supportforums.cisco.com/docs/DOC-1373

If you want to restore a WLC config then that FTP/TFTP backup will be useful. Here is a reference for that

By the way thanks for using rating system as well.
