AP Telnet Configuration: Can you set it for all AP?
Cisco documentation mentions telnet access to AP:
The controller supports the use of Telnet or Secure Shell (SSH) protocols to troubleshoot lightweight
access points. Using these protocols makes debugging easier, especially when the access point is unable
to connect to the controller.
I can see how this would help debugging, but you can only set telnet on an AP via the CLI using the command:
config ap telnet enable (CISCO AP NAME).
This means I would have to enter the command 600 times to get it enabled on all my AP, never mind the fact that the AP I might want to debug is no longer associated with a controller and I can't therefore set the telnet enable command!
Is there a way of setting telnet access for all AP as a default on the controllers?
I also have WCs can find nothing there that helps...
Re: AP Telnet Configuration: Can you set it for all AP?
If the APs are all connected to the controller and you have a WCS, it is easy to push telnet/ssh config to all the aps at one go. On the WCS, create an ap template, enable telnet/ssh access and apply to this template to all the aps that you want.
Here is the path in WCS (I am using WCS version 6.0.X.X):
Configure > AP Configuration Templates > Lightweight AP > Lightweight AP Template Detail
