Catalyst 9300 Wireless Controller install

Hi All,

 

I am going to be installing a few 9300 switches at my location and I am looking for a guide or information about activating the inbuilt WLC on this platform.

 

Does anyone have any guides or information on how to activate this feature set? I have come up empty on my searches. I am thinking it has something to do with the install command but I cannot find the right combo to get it working.

Hi John,

 

according to this document https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/wireless/controller/9800/config-guide/b_wl_16_10_cg/wireless-sub-package.html you can install the Wireless subpackage but need a DNA Center for provisioning and deployment. I hope this will change so we can use it as a standalone controller.

 

"Note: Cisco Catalyst 9800 Wireless Controller software on the Cisco Catalyst 9300 switches must be provisioned and deployed on the switch using Cisco DNA Center, and it cannot be configured as a standalone controller."

 

Regards,

Jens

Hi All, 

 

This has changed and is available in 17.3.1 IOS-XE now to run the WLC as a standalone (NON-SDA) controller

I am re-reading the 9300 Release Notes for 17.3.1 and I don't see this information anywhere.  
Is this them "undocumented feature"?

Hi Leo, 

 

Don't get too exited this still does a form of fabric wireless and uses VxLAN but it does not require DNA-C to be deployed and is classed as non-SDA

 

For reference see -
