AP SNMP System Location not present in Airwave

We are currently monitoring Aruba APs using Airwave 8.2.3.  AMON and SNMP ver 2.  The issue we are experiencing  is the AP Location field is not being populated from the AP SNMP System location field from the controller.  Any ideas why this is not working?

Re: AP SNMP System Location not present in Airwave

Hi,


We have the location field only under the monitor page for the controller and not for APs. Could you confirm whether you are not seeing it for the controllers as well?

Below is what I'm refering to.  There is no Location information for either APs or controllers.

Got it. In this for APs it wont be showing, as we dont have the location field if we navigate to AP monitor page. 

 

For controllers could you share a screen shot of the sys location set on the controller web interface? Also, please share the output for below snmp walk from Airwave CLI,

 

# s2w <Controller IP>  <Community string> sysLocation

I take it the location field was removed in 8.2.3 because version 8.2.0.1 has it.  Example of this below.

Any chance this thread could be revived? There did not appear to be any answer to the issue. I am running soem AP reports and the SNMP location would be very valuable. It is populated on the controllers but is not picked up in the Airwave report. Also there is now no-where to add location in the device configuration:

Do you have the syslocation defined in the controller's configuration?

 

config t

syslocation "location of controller"

 

AP locations are set separately in each access point's provisioning page on the controller's GUI.  After this is done, it takes some time for Airwave to read that variable from each access point.

Yes syslocation is set. The Airwave report picks up the WLAN controllers SNMP location but not the AP's. The AP locations have been set on the controllers for years

When you say the AP locations have been set for years, where are they set and how would you look at them?

It is set in the controller AP provisioning page:
