Ive a situation that our site needs to assign the AP (Access Point) into the existing NMS (Prime Infrastructure 2.1). ive already built the floor as the figure below. so ive many AP on site, how could I make it auto positioning. because, its hundred AP, cant manage all and needs to re-survey if the PI cant have ability to solve this.
hope anyone already implement this case. any comment i appreciate that.
You will have to place APs on the MAP to tell PI where exactly you have installed AP physically so that it can give correct floor coverage heat map and lot of other stuff.

Thanks for reply, according to this situation, i have no idea this APs are placed, so i need PI help to auto position which is i dont put it manually.
Is it possible to do that?
Thanks before. Regards,
No. In that case you can place them anywhere on the map which would generate a wrong heat map and over the time , correct them. How PI would know where APs are located when you don't know ? Just kidding.
Just to clarify, there is a feature called "Using the Automatic Hierarchy to Create Maps" using which you would be able to create maps automatically and assign AP to it using some matching conditions like campus name , building name etc and any AP matching that would be assigned to that AP. But again to make sure that it is correctly placed on the floor , you would have to place at correct location on the map.

NoteYou must enable theAdvanced Debug option in Prime Infrastructure to use the Scheduled and On-demand location accuracy tool testing features. The Location Accuracy tool does not appear as an option on the Operate > Operational Tools > Wireless menu when the Advanced Debug option is not enabled.
Note • You can download logs for accuracy tests from the Accuracy Tests summary page. To do so, select an accuracy test and from the Select a command drop-down list, choose either Download Logs or Download Logs for Last Run. Click Go.
Use the scheduled accuracy testing to verify the accuracy of the current location of non-rogue and rogue clients, interferers, and asset tags. You can get a PDF of the test results at Accuracy Tests > Results . The Scheduled Location Accuracy report includes the following information:
Step 6 Choose a destination point for the test results. (If you choose the e-mail option, you must first define an SMTP Mail Server for the target email address. Choose Administrator > Settings > Mail Server to enter the appropriate information.)
When you check a MAC address check box, two icons appear on the map. One represents the actual location and the other represents the reported location. If the actual location for an element is not the same as the reported location, drag the actual location icon for that element to the correct position on the map. (You cannot drag the reported location.)
You can run an On-Demand Accuracy Test when elements are associated but not prepositioned. On-Demand testing allows you to test the location accuracy of clients, tags, and interferers at a number of different locations. It is generally used to test the location accuracy of a small number of clients, tags, and interferers. You can get a PDF of the test results at Accuracy Tests > Results . The On-Demand Accuracy Report includes the following information:
Step 5 Choose a destination point for the test results. (If you choose the e-mail option, you must first define an SMTP Mail Server for the target email address. Choose Administrator > Settings > Mail Server to enter the appropriate information.)
Step 7 To test the location accuracy and RSSI of a particular location, select client, tag, or interferer from the drop-down list on the left. A list of all MAC addresses for the selected option (client, tag, or interferer) is displayed in a drop-down list to the right.
