Cisco wireless Access point - Prime template for static IP - bulk deployment

Dear All, 

 

I have a controller managing different floors and would like to through prime apply a template to push to all Access points with the objective of having them static IP once received from DHCP server. 

 

Can someone shed some light of how to accomplish it , did not see this option in prime in AP template.

Is this possible

 

Thank you

Yes John. You are correct. There is no such option in the Prime Infra templates for Lightweight APs. It has to be done on a per-AP basis. Even the WLC doesn't have a global option to enable this for all the APs at once. I hope that there should have been at least a command on the WLC to enable this for all the APs globally.

 

Cheers,

Manish

John,

You can create a CLI command script with the ap name and ip address and paste that in the GUI.  That would be simple once you tested your script.

config ap static-IP enable <hostname> <ip address> <mask><gateway>

         Not possible, use DHCP at all times

so to summarize there is no such template from Prime hence cannot do bulk config for the Static IP.

Either go each AP and apply static IP for every AP or go with DHCP ?

 - DHCP is always the  way to go , as it also provides the possibility to provide the controller address through dhcp option 43. Also, DHCP will ease your network management tasks if you ever need to re-number or re-address parts of your network devices or access points (for instance).
