Hi Can I get the device config somehow from the WCS interface?
You mean the controller configuration files? In that case yes, you can run a background task for controller configuration backup and get this from your WCS FTP / TFTP folder. It will be an xml file.
How do I do that? I actually meant how do I get the config.txt file off of a particular AP but that would be interesting to know too.
Background tasks are from Administration -> Background task
For AP, the configuration is pulled from the WLC and stored on the WCS database.
You can run a WCS backup from Start -> Program Files -> WCS -> Backup, this will make a copy of your whole WCS database including the AP and controller configuration that are stored at this time.
if I backup this way does it run as a background task. It won't stop any services will it?
Run the backup fom start-> program files, it will not stop your wcs.
what file format is it and what can i use to view it. I tried notepad and that's not it.
What I provided you with is how to save your AP configuration.
To view it, you need to use the WCS AP configuration menus.
