Controller Based WLANs

How do we reassign an AP to an AP group when the AP is powered off or otherwise not connected to the network or controller?

Aruba Employee

Introduction : All discovered Campus APs will initially belong to the AP group named “default” and on occasions when the AP is powered off or otherwise not connected to the network or controller then it won’t show up under AP Installation in the Controller WebGUI and during that instance if we wish to change the AP group for those APs, Then we can execute the ap-regroup command.

Once the ap-regroup command is executed, it is queued and executed only when the the AP is powered on or reconnected. Again, the AP will automatically reboot as soon as the command is executed.

 

Environment : This article applies to all controller models and AOS versions 5.0 and higher

 

Configuration Steps :

 

Use the following command to reassign a single AP to an existing AP group.

ap-regroup {ap-name <name>|serial-num <number>|wired-mac <macaddr>} <group>

Sample Configurations:

(Aruba3200XM) (config) #ap-regroup ap-name Floor003 Floor3

NOTE: For cert RAP ap-group specified in RAP whitelist will take precedence.
