AP Groups VLAN showing all SSIDs - Need help.....

Hey everyone!

     I am hoping I can find some help with configuring the AP Groups VLAN feature on a WiSM + WCS ver 4.2 environment. I enabled and setup AP Groups VLAN for a campus type network acording to the guide here:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk722/tk809/technologies_configuration_example09186a008073c723.shtml

The issue I am having is that even though I enabled and setup the AP Group VLAN as well as assigned the interface / network the AP to the group, all the SSIDs still broadcast on that AP where I only want one SSID to be present. I am testing this in a building that is an extension of another and only have 1 AP thus far so I know I am not picking up the SSIDs from other APs. 

Anyone have any suggestions or can help? I would greatly appreciate it.....

Thank You!

Ed

Hi Ed,

The feature you are looking for is called WLAN Override in 4.x release versions

Enabling WLAN Override

By default, access points transmit all defined WLANs on the controller. However, you can use the WLAN Override option to select which WLANs are transmitted and which ones are not on a per access point basis. For example, you can use WLAN override to control where in the network the guest WLAN is transmitted or you can use it to disable a specific WLAN in a certain area of the network.

From this doc;

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/wireless/controller/4.0/configuration/guide/c40wlan.html#wp1114777

Once you create a new WLAN, the WLAN > Edit page for the new WLAN appears. In this page you can define various parameters specific to this WLAN including General Policies, RADIUS Servers, Security Policies, and 802.1x Parameters.

**Check Admin Status under General Policies to enable the WLAN. If you want the AP to broadcast the SSID in its beacon frames, check Broadcast SSID.

Note: You can configure up to sixteen WLANs on the controller. The Cisco WLAN Solution can control up to sixteen WLANs for Lightweight APs. Each WLAN has a separate WLAN ID (1 through 16), a separate WLAN SSID (WLAN name), and can be assigned unique security policies. Lightweight APs broadcast all active Cisco WLAN Solution WLAN SSIDs and enforce the policies that you define for each WLAN.

From this good doc;
