Copying the Configuration of an Instant Access to a template

I cannot connected an IAP to my network so i made a small little side network that has no access to anything. It is just a laptop, dumb switch, and an IAP. I want to setup an IAP 225 with all of my standard stuff and then copy the config off. Then i wish to send the config up to another IAP, same model, over console. I cannot find any documentation on how to copy the config off through the console or what commands to run to send it to a factory defauly IAP through the console. Can someone point me towards the documentation?

Re: Copying the Configuration of an Instant Access to a template

Hi,

 

It is possible, just follow the following steps,

 

Step 1 : Connect your laptop to the IAP over one of the SSID or connect the laptop to the same subnet and take the webui.

Step 2 : Select maintenance-->Configuration

Step 3 : Click on "Backup Configuration", it will download the configuration file into your laptop with a name "Instant.cfg"

Step 4 : Similarly take the WebUI of the IAP to which you want to copy the same config.

Stap 5 : Select Maintenance-->Configuration

Step 6 : Click on "Restore Configuration", it will ask for the config file for restoring now select "instant.cfg" which was downloaded into your laptop.

Just follow above 6 steps to meet your requirement :)

 

Please feel free for any further help on this.

 

Cheers,
Venu Puduchery,

Re: Copying the Configuration of an Instant Access to a template

I would really like to do this through the console. I logged into the web interface and setup an Aruba just the way i wanted. I then hooked up to the console and was able to TFTP the config off of the device. I was able to make changed to the config and was able to push it back up to the device and see the changes. But i do not think it worked for one reason or another. More testing is needed.  I would like to do it all through the console. The aruba "instant" ssid takes forever to come up and a few other things.

 

My test steps so far:

1. Get onto the same network as the aruba 169.254.17.X (aruba) 169.254.17.X+1 (my laptop)

2. TFTP the config off of the device

3. make changes to the config

4. Factory restory the device

5. TFTP the config back to the device

 

What i want to happen after my testing

1. Get onto the same network as the aruba 169.254.17.X (aruba) 169.254.17.X+1 (my laptop)

2. Make changes to the standard template

3. TFTP the config to the device

 

I'll update when i am finished with the results.
