SSH to W5508 Controller

Hi All

 

I'm trying to automate the enable and disable of a specific WLAN on 5508 Wireless Controller.

 

Having used Event Manager Applet to shut down / enable an interface previously I thought it would make sense to use it again to do this. The script keeps ending with:

 

show event manager history events

10 43 Actv abort Tue Nov 6 10:43:00 2018 timer cron applet: Wlan3Shut

 

Below is the config I used. Can anyone help me out?

 

event manager applet Wlan3Shut
event timer cron name Wlan3Shut cron-entry "43 10 * * *" maxrun 60
action 1.1 cli command "enable"
action 1.2 cli command "ssh 10.X.X.X" pattern "User:"
action 1.3 cli command "myusername" pattern "Password:"
action 1.4 cli command "mypassword" pattern ">"
action 1.5 cli command "config" pattern "config>"
action 1.6 cli command "wlan disable 3" pattern "config>"
action 1.7 cli command "exit" pattern ">"
action 1.8 cli command "logout " pattern ">"
action 1.9 cli command "n" pattern "(y/N)"

 

 

 

 

This is the output if I SSH Manually to the 5508 from the switch.

 

SwitchName#ssh 10.X.X.X


(Cisco Controller)
User: MYUSER
Password:**********
(Cisco Controller) >conf
(Cisco Controller) config>wlan disable 3


(Cisco Controller) config>exit

(Cisco Controller) >logout
The system has unsaved changes.
Would you like to save them now? (y/N) n
[Connection to 10.X.X.X closed by foreign host]

 

 

Many Thanks!

Rob

Re: SSH to W5508 Controller

Then running an EEM is still "wrong" because of limitation.
So this is for a school, yeah?
School have excess rPi that you can try out, yeah?
Can you get one and run two Kron script? First one turns off the WLAN and the second one turns it back on.

Re: SSH to W5508 Controller

That's wrong.
If you want to disable a particular SSID, then run the EEM on the VLAN of the dynamic interface.

Re: SSH to W5508 Controller

Hi Leo, can you expand on that? 

 

I have multiple SID's using the same VLAN so cannot just disable that interface on the controller.

Using the commands above Im able to disable just that one WLAN.

Re: SSH to W5508 Controller

Thank you Leo 

 

I did end up setting up 2 scripts to run on a cron schedule in a little linux vm. Its a shame this feature isn't available on iOS of the WLC. 

 

Cheers
