Backup SSID...then what?

Hey, I've been configuring the Backup SSID option (not the remote AP backup operation) in my lab and all is worked as expected. I can access the Backup SSID when the tunnel to the controller is down...but then what?


How do we access the AP console? Do we need to telnet/ssh to the default gatewat of the DHCP pool?

Re: Backup SSID...then what?

That's an unusual use case. Why would you need to access the AP console if the link to the controller went down?

 

Cheers
James

Re: Backup SSID...then what?

Hey, i'm just testing it in my lab and attempting to replicate a scenario. The Admin guide states how to complete the configuration but not how to access the AP once connected to the backup SSID.

Re: Backup SSID...then what?

When you connect, you would telnet into your default gateway.  The password will be the console password from the AP system profile.

 

You would then be able to see the environment variables by typing:

 

bootenv -j

 

You would set any environment variable on the AP by typing:

 

bootenv -p name=value

 

e.g.

 

bootenv -p master=192.168.1.3

 

You can also erase parameters:

 

bootenv -p master=

 

bootenv -s will factory default the AP

 

reboot will reboot the AP
