CAPWAP Primary/Secondary/Tertiary Question

After going to the High Availability Tab in the WLC GUI and setting the primary, secondary, and tertiary, how do you see that in the CLI in the AP?

I tried using show capwap ip config, it doesn't show any entries at all?

And also, is there a command to do that in the CLI in the AP?  to set the primary, secondary, and tertiary?

Thank you.

sorry, missed the 'in the AP cli' part.

you can't set the information from the CLI on the AP, that has to be done on the WLC.

if you do a

show capwap client rcb

that shoudl show you what WLC the AP is configured for

Re: CAPWAP Primary/Secondary/Tertiary Question

You can set the primary, secondary and or tertiary from the ap if the ap has not joined by doing:

capwap ap controller ip address wlc-mgmt-ip

If the AP's are joined to the WLC then issue:

config ap primary-base

Show ap config general

show ap config general

                 ^

% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

config ap primary-base

config ap

          ^

% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

Getting invalid commands for the both of them.  Below is IOS version the AP is on.

you need to run th config ap... from a WLC.  You have autonomous AP's so you need to convert them to LWAPP and you also need a WLC to do this.

"ou need to run th config ap... from a WLC.  You have autonomous AP's so  you need to convert them to LWAPP and you also need a WLC to do this."

It's been converted to LWAPP, but haven't joined a WLC yet.

What I wanted to do was configure a primary, secondary before joining it to a WLC.

Because what I would of done is first have it join a controller, then go into the GUI and change the HA (High Availablilty) and add the primary/secondary controllers. 

Thought if I could skip the first step and try to configure it from the AP.

Ah, in that case that means I have to have the LWAPPs join the controller first before issuing the commands on the WLC.

Ok, that clears up some things.

Thanks.

The command "sh ap config general " will give you the result in the end of page 1 and the top page of page 2.

is there a way to show the primary/secondary on the AP as oppose to the WLC?

No because the WAP does NOT keep these information.  The only "information" the WAP keeps is a simple stuff on WHERE the WLC is.  It's like ET-phone-home.

Actually, the same "#show capwap client rcb" at the AP CLI that Steve suggested should reveal this information.
