I'm in the process of upgrading my wireless network from Prime Infrastructure with WLC5508s to DNA Center with WLC9800s. Being able to manager my wireless infrastructure using Prime has been great, trying to do the same with DNA Center has been very nonexistent. From what I learned so far is that you can create command line templates to push to the 9800 WLC but as far as access point template they seem not to exist non like the PrimeÂ Infrastructure. Has anyone be successful or know of a way to manage access points from DNA similar to what you can do with Prime?
Scott, that what I was assuming, I know DNAC is new and working with Prime and the 5500 WLC spoiled me using template with big group of access point. Working on the 9800 WLC all of the AP configurations is done one AP at time which is makes it very difficult as are AP deployment increases.
Thanks for your response

Don’t expect that DNAc will do everything that PI has done, DNAC is still pretty new and many folks still have Prime up and running while DNAc has been also put into production
I agree @Scott Fella. We have PI and DNAc running side-by-side.
One major improvement with DNAc is updating the firmware and the application. Other than that, DNAc is not yet ready -- and when the BU is asking for feedback (aka pain points) from DNAc operators that says a lot.
