Hi, we've created a SSID, which is not being broadcasted. Now I would need to enable broadcast of the SSID-so my question is: how will the access points act after enabling it? Will they reboot automatically?? Or do they even need to be rebooted?
Solved! Go to Solution.
for broadcast a ssid , there is no need for reload.
what you need for broadcast:
mbssid guest-mode <– Only required multiple SSID to be broadcast.
If it is only single SSID this needs to be “ ssid guest-mode”!

This will depend on whether or not you're using autonomous AP or controller-based AP.
If you have controller-based AP and you are using AP Groups, the change from the default-groups to a different AP Group will reboot the AP.
ok, thanks for your answers. I'll enable the broadcast and will let you know how what really happened. I also expect the SSID to go down/up.
Just to add.... if your enabling broadcast, from a client side, they will only see a glitch in the network, but if your disabling broadcast, then you will have to reconfigure your deives. If a profile was created on a device when broadcast was enabled, then the profile will not check if the ssid is not being broadcasted. So just be careful with that.
I assume you are talking about a WLC based LAP environment. The option is available under Wireless tab.
Onve the "Broadcast SSID" is ticked, the SSID will reload and clients will lose connections.
if there are Multiple SSID's the other SSID's wont get afected nor the access points.
This change will NOt restart the LAP's.
