We're going around in circles.  

 

Let me repeat:  You CANNOT SAVE your SNMP strings on a controller-based AP.  You can configure them but when you reboot the AP, it's gone.  

 

Exactly what SNMP details do you want to configure on the AP which you can't get using snmpget or snmpwalk?

Just an addition to my last

Just an addition to my last post (below): 

 

I am working with two guys who's very savy at PERL scripting.  They've done a lot of SNMP configuration, both in wired and wireless network, and I've never seen them configure anything SNMP on our controller-based AP.  All SNMP work are done on the WLC and it's mostly snmpget or snmpwalk.  

 

If you need to configure SNMP strings on the AP then, rest assured, someone is doing it wrong.

That's because you can't save a configuration on the AP if the AP is running controller-based IOS.  Controller-based AP/IOS means all configuration is on the WLC.   It defeats the true purpose of controller-based IOS if one has to configure each individual AP.

Is it possible to configure snmp string on AP through controller?

If you're talking about RO & RW community string, yes you can.  You've got a choice of configuring via CLI or GUI.

You can't. Things are handled

You can't. Things are handled by the WLC. 

Q. Can a LAP AP handle SNMP messages like an IOS AP?

 

A.  The LAP APs cannot handle SNMP messages on their own. In order to handle SNMP messages, you should configure an SNMP community on the WLC to which the LAP is registered. All the AP information is managed by the WLC.
