Export file from 5508

Dear all.

I know that is a very uninteresting topic, but i need to ask...

I have a 5508 wireless controller, and 96 AP`s on it.

There is some way to export to a file the information of  AP names and IOS version of them?

Re: Export file from 5508

HI Daron,

As per my knowledge u can do it.

u can check via wlc cli, with this commad: show ap inventory

Another way is:

The easiest way to get the report from WCS/NCS/PI.

Just AN iDEA: Download a WCS trial version and you can pull an inventory report.

It is easy and quick to get the inventory list of APs from PI.


Login to PI then go to:


Then click on new.

Choose report type : AP's

Just below that customized tab is there, click on that and choose the data field to include.

Then RUN

Hi Dan,

Getting a simple list of APs with there IOS version is easily accomplished with the CLI command

show ap image all 

Note: You can put it into Excel in that form quite easily by simply pasting it into a blank workbook and using the "text import tool"

If you want more info than that, Sandee's post above is pretty comprehensive.
