Time Range Profile Question

I'm trying to set up an SSID that will be turned off during school hours but will be on before and after school and on weekends. Time Range Profiles look to do exactly what I want, but I'm a little confused about how to set it up.

 

Is the SSID enabled by default and I only need to create one range for when it should be disabled? Or should there be a range for when it should be disabled and for when it's enabled.

 

Thanks

Is this instant, or a controller-based deployment?

We have Airwave with instant controllers, but haven't found where to set it in Airwave.

Since it is instant, information on time range is here:  https://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Controller-less-WLANs/Time-Range-Profile-on-IAP-from-4-2-1-firmware/ta-p/260889

 

Are you using Airwave to manage the configuration or you log into the Instant AP to change the configuration?

Re: Time Range Profile Question

That's the page I've been going off of, I'm just a little unsure of exactly how the ranges work.

 

For example, I make a range from 7:30AM to 3:00PM. I then go into the SSID settings, select the range and choose Disabled under Status. Does this mean that from 7:30 to 3:00 the SSID will be disabled and any other time it's enabled? And if I were choose Enabled under status it would be enabled during that time period and disabled any other time?

 

I've been looking at it on the Instant interface because that's what the instructions are in, but I just found where you change it in Airwave, so once I figure out what ranges I should create, I think I can do the actual configuring of it.

Make the SSID disabled.

Attach the time range.

The SSID will only be enabled during the time range.

**The SSID will only be enabled and disabled at the beginning or the end of the time range, so if you configure the time range in the middle of the range it will not be enabled.  You can reboot the AP for the time range to take immediate effect, however.
