Change the dns for the provisionned ap

Hi,

i want to change the dns ip set when i provisionned my ap, but i prefer to not do it ap per ap.

Is there somethnig to do that per group of ap?

Re: Change the dns for the provisionned ap

AFAIK, the only way to do that for a group of APs is to select APs of a specific type (all AP 125s or all AP 105s) and then set the DNS name and reprovision (remember they will reboot when you do this).

 

I don't know of a way to do it by AP group and the GUI wont let you provision different model APs at the same time.

 

This may not work, though, if you use static IP addresses on the APs.

Re: Change the dns for the provisionned ap

Sorry, may have mistaken the question... did you ask about changing the name of the master controller or the DNS server IP address?  If it is the DNS server IP address and you have static IP addresses, you cant make a wholesale change.  You will have to do it manually.

 

As Colin said, if the DNS IP is handed out by DHCP, just make the change on the DHCP server.

 

If you asked about the master controller name, then my original post shoud answer that.

Ok, your fist answer is fine to me.

I will do it like that on the next upgrade.

 

Many thanks.

You could also script the "re-provision AP" commands on the CLI if you wanted to/had hundreds of APs to do.
