I know that the AP Group "default-group" is somehow static: no WLANs can be deleted nor added (the first 16 SSIDs will populate this group). Now, as each new AP which connects to this WLC will get automatically pushed into this "default-group", it would get all the SSIDs activated on it! This is a behavior I'd like to avoid, thus my question:
Is there any way to steer in which AP group a new AP gets pushed?
Or is there any way to avoid new APs to simply connect to the WLC? I would love to have a functionality like other vendors, which allow the AP to "contact" the WLC, but leave it "greyed out": a manual "authorization" is needed to allow the AP to work and be managed from the WLC.
Yes AP Authorization is very much possible in Cisco also. By default AP will go in to default group as it should work while it connects to the WLC and forcing some one to create AP group for AP functioning is not a cool idea. Once the AP joins , then only you would be able to configure AP group and put the AP in this configured AP group to push selected SSID/RF parameters etc. It just needs one reboot to inherit new AP group settings , So that should be ok.
For Authorization part , you can very well authorize APs based on parameters like mac-address authorization and without passing that AP would not join the WLC even if it is reachable.
