VCI String for LAP1232AG


Sorry for my English, but I am French and I do not speak very quite English.

I will like to know which is the VCI string for an AP 1232AG to inform in the 43 DHCP Option.

Could you help me ?

Thank you

Re: VCI String for LAP1232AG

You can try to customize these settings for a Cisco Aironet 1240 Series AP:

Option 60 (VCI string): Cisco AP c1240

Option 43:

Type: 241 (decimal)

Length: Number of controller IP addresses X 4

Value: List of WLC management interfaces (typically translated to hex values)

Hope it helps,

Re: VCI String for LAP1232AG

In fact, in this document, there is the VCI string for AP1240, but not for AP1230. So, I hope that is possible to use DHCP Option 43 with AP 1230.

Can you say some to me more ?

Re: VCI String for LAP1232AG

Hi Ben,

From what I know and have read the correct VCI string for the 1230 is;

Cisco Aironet 1200 Series;

vci string = Cisco AP c1200

Migration from autonomous access point mode to lightweight mode is possible on these Cisco Aironet access point platforms:

All 1130AG access points

All 1240 AG access points

For all IOS-based 1200 series modular access point (1200/1220 Cisco IOS Software Upgrade, 1210 and 1230 AP) platforms, it depends on the radio:

if 802.11G, MP21G and MP31G are supported

if 802.11A, RM21A and RM22A are supported

The 1200 series access points can be upgraded with any combination of supported radios: G only, A only, or both G and A.

From this doc;

Hope this helps!

hi Ben ,

1230 belongs to 1200 group so you need to use

Cisco AP c1200 as VCI string .

Hope this will resolve your query
