I'm looking for some advice. We need to move some LAP's from one controller to another. There are 2 problems, one is that the LAP's are all in different locations around the country so we cant really get console access and the second is that the other controller isnt in the same mobility group, and due to politics we cant add it to the same group.
We have tried to telnet to the ap's and configure but just get ERROR!!! Command is disabled.
If you can control the DNS, I would suggest making an entry for CISCO-LWAPP-CONTROLLER that points to the other controller.
Then, reset the AP to defaults (I think can be done from the controller), so the AP comes back on, resolved CISCO-LWAPP-CONTROLLER, and registers with that controller.
Now obviously if you use this entry for something else or if DHCP has entries, then you'll need to disable them, but this is the best way I can think of to get the AP on another controller without acessing it (or without having the same mobility group).
That doesnt seem to work with telnet, because the ap's are still connected to the controller they get "ERROR!!! Command is disabled". And through the GUI I think it has to be the controller by name when they are in the same mobility group.
Yes if you wipe the config. But if you simply reboot the AP with a new primary it should redirect to the primary. Again, I'd have to look at code version you're running but try it on one AP and see what happens. Apply the new primary and reboot the AP. It will either work or fail. If it fails it will fall back to the original controller. Make sure all applicable ports are open and routes to the other controller are established.
