Re: How to provision WLA 372 on WLC?

Do you already have other APs configured? It should basically be copy/paste from one of those, changing s/n and model.

Otherwise, you need to define a service-profile to define SSID, auth, encryption, and the associated VLAN. Then a radio profile linked to that, which can define channels, power levels, etc. Then the AP (or auto), linked to the radio-profile.

For a basic config, using WPA2-PSK, something like (I think I've got this all right):

set service-profile MySP ssid-name MySSID
set service-profile MySP auth-fallthru last-resort
set service-profile MySP psk-phrase PassPhrase
set service-profile MySP rsn-ie cipher-ccmp enable
set service-profile MySP rsn-ie auth-psk enable
set service-profile MySP rsn-ie enable
set service-profile MySP attr vlan-name MyVLAN

set radio-profile default service-profile MySP

set ap auto mode enable
set ap auto time-out 10
(radio-profile default is default)

set vlan 1 name MyVLAN
set vlan 1 port 1

Thanks msauve!

If the WLA372 is provisioned previously, how can we re-provision the WLA372 to WLC8, using the WLC8 WebUI?

Is there a kb or doc link for this?
Thanks!

Re: How to provision WLA 372 on WLC?

Check the docs for how an AP finds its controller. L2 broadcast, then DHCP option, then looks for DNS name "trpz," or something like that. There isn't much config on an AP - it could have static IP and/or mesh SSID configured and/or WLC address, not much else. The rest it gets from the controller when they talk.  If your's has a WLC controller configured, you might need to connect it to the same subnet/VLAN/broadcast domain as the controller you want to use to get it to come up, then do "clear ap X boot-config" from the WLC cli.

That's what "clear ap X boot-config" does.

I found the way using WebUI to reprovision it directly.

Hope there would be more info on this.
Do share if there's any kb or doc link on this.

Thanks blacksmith :smileyhappy:
