How to set up secondary WLC for all APs at once?

We added a new controller to the group which we want to be as a secondary for all WAPs. How can I set it up so that I don't have to go to each AP individually? Can this be done on the controller or from the WCS?

WCS.

Configure > AP Template > Lightweight AP > Add Template > Make a name > Save

Under AP Parameters Tab, right-hand column, tick the "Controllers" and choose the secondary controller in the drop down menu.

To the left-hand column, scroll down and put a tick in the "Secondary Controller IP Address" and enter the IP address of the Secondary Controller.

Go to the Select AP tab and find the WAP based on the controller name (fastest way to find it) and choose them.  Go to the Apply/Schedule tab and click the "Apply" button.

All done.

Hi Peter,

bulk configuration of APs (e.g. setting primary/secondary controller) is a WCS/NCS/Prime Infrastructure feature.

If you want to test this software, Prime Infrastructure 1.2 comes with an built-in evaluation license for 100 devices (=access points) and 60 days (if I remember correctly). PI 1.2 is the successor of WCS and NCS.

regards

Stefan
