Multiple IAPs connected, Can I restrict an SSID to a single AP

Hey guys, hope all is well.  Quick one.  I have say 10 IAPs connected together in a building.  I want to create a new ssid and limit the access to a single location in the building.  Say a guest net that is only available in a common area.  Is that possible.  Sounds simple but I cannot find where to restrict the ssid in the setup to the one IAP.  It propogates to all connected IAPs.

 

 

 

Thanks in advance for the help.

You can't do this today.  This is an active Feature Request............

 

About the only way you could do this today is to setup one IAP as a "standalone" AP and run its' own config.

Hopes this comes to be an added feature b/c we've had many clients ask about this ability. Often times like the OP has said customers have requested to only broadcast the SSID in a small office lobby where they service guests.

Hi, this feature is expected to be in the upcoming 4.1 release.

As of now what we did is to put the APs in different VC else other methods will be using a physical controller and put the APs in different AP Groups.
