Q:

How to change the location information on the controller?

 

 



A:

This is a controller specific configuration.

By default all the controllers will show the location as "Building1.floor1 " this can be changed by the below command:

With the default location information:

(Local1) #show switches

All Switches
------------
IP Address       Name    Location              Type   Model          Version             Status  Configuration State       Config Sync Time (sec)  Config ID
----------              ----          --------                    ----      -----               -------                  ------    -------------------                   ----------------------              ---------
10.17.168.230  Local1  Building1.floor1  local  Aruba3400  6.3.1.21_54002  up      UPDATE SUCCESSFUL            0                                  16

Command to change:

(Local1) #configure  terminal
Enter Configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z

(Local1) (config) #location Main-Building1
(Local1) (config) #write memory
Saving Configuration...

Configuration Saved.
 

After the changes:

(Local1) #show switches

All Switches
------------
IP Address         Name    Location             Type   Model         Version             Status     Configuration State      Config Sync Time (sec)  Config ID
----------                ----          --------                   ----      -----              -------                  ------        -------------------                   ----------------------             ---------
10.17.168.230  Local1    Main-Building1  local  Aruba3400  6.3.1.21_54002  up      UPDATE SUCCESSFUL                    0                            16

 

This can also be changed from the WEBUI, under Configuration, Network > Controller > System Settings > Controller Location.
