Move AP from C9800 to 5508

Hi Everyone,

 

I'm migrating APs from 5508 to 9800. However, as a roll back plan I would like to have a way to bring APs back to 5508.

I know how to make it from GUI *(which is not very convenient for 10+ APs). However, I couldn't find CLI command *(similar to ap primary-base {WLC_name} {AP_name} {WLC_ip} )

If you know the command for 9800 - please share.

Any other easy way to bring APs back is also appreciated.

I am migrating ~50 APs so it is a pain to move them back manually. :)

 

9800 version - 16.12.2s

DHCP currently configured for 5508 WLCs

 

Edit:

Found out how to make change through AP Join Profile.

I'm going to test it and let know about the results.

 

Kind regards,

From the Privileged mode type:

device# ap name <AP_name> controller primary <WLC_name> <WLC_IP>
device# ap name <AP_name> controller secondary <WLC_name> <WLC_IP>

Thank you, Jesus.

How could I oversee this command.

Re: Move AP from C9800 to 5508

You can extract an AP summary list from your ct5508, create an Excel sheet to CONCATENATE the command to point to the old ct5508 controller, and create and script.

 

After migration, if you have to roll back paste that script in c9800 Priviledge mode, and then reset all of the APs (or wait for them to do it automatically). You shoul be able to check if the command has taken effect going to Configuration > Wireless > Access Point > [AP] > High Availability tab (or through CLI command "show ap name GBWPLAP0001 conf general | i Cisco Controller)
