Change the name of SSID on Wireless Controller

Hey guys, I have a simple question can I change the name of the SSID once its been implemented?

basically if SSID = WORK, can I change it to Office WORK?

I want to see if I can avoid deleting the SSID completely and starting over.

Thanks for your help.

Change the name of SSID on Wireless Controller

Yea you can do a simple "NO" and replace it. Then apply to the radio. Keep in mind you can not map WORK and WORK2 to the same VLAN. So you will need to delete it or move it ..

Does that help ?

Change the name of SSID on Wireless Controller

Yes that helps out alot. I assume that I will have to do this via the command line. What commands should I use to get this done.

Config Wlan broadcast-ssid disable ? or is there something else?

I could blindly comment, but would rather take a peek at your config so I dont steer you wrong. Can you post your config?

You will not be able to change the ssid in the GUI either... delete and recreate:)

Re: Change the name of SSID on Wireless Controller

Scott,

I had ready PC Support's post as if they thought they were going to have to use the CLI to make changes to the controller. As if they weren't aware of the GUI.

Re: Change the name of SSID on Wireless Controller

On a WLC you would have to delete the WLAN profile then recreate it to change the SSID.

Change the name of SSID on Wireless Controller

Stephen Rodriquez is correct. There is no way to rename the SSID. Out of all the commands listed for the WLC, change SSID is not one of them. Although I am curious as to why though.

I reluctantly deleted the old SSID and created the new one.

All is working now.

Thanks for the input guys.
