Rename VAP/SSID/AAA Profiles

Hello,

 

I would like to rename some of the various profiles we have configured (VAP/SSID/AAA etc.). I can see no way of doing this within the web interface, on to CLI however I can see there is a 'rename' command but it offer no contextual menu on how it can be used. I have tried obvious commands such as:

 

'(Aruba-7205-1) (Virtual AP profile "VAP NAME-vap_prof") #rename 'NEW VAP NAME-vap_prof' '

 

but this does not work.

 

Can this be done or is it a case of cloning all the profiles I want to rename and repointing all the references to the new profiles?

 

Thanks.

Re: Rename VAP/SSID/AAA Profiles

rename is for renaming files in the flash (e.g. see them with "dir").

 

I would recommend you make use of the "clone" command, something like this - being mindful of the ordering. Depending how long your list is, this should be pretty quick relative to webui means

 

 

conf t
  wlan ssid-profile new_ssid_profile
    clone old_ssid_profile
  !
  aaa profile new_aaa_profile
    clone old_aaa_profile
  !
  wlan virtual-ap new_vap_profile
     clone old_vap_profile
     aaa-profile new_aaa_profile
     ssid-profile new_ssid_profile
  !
exit

I myself use dugem2016's solution for this as well, but if you want to use the GUI, via 'All Profiles' look up your profile and select it. In the top right corner there should be a 'save as' button which can be used to clone the current profiles.

  

dugem, you probably know this, but you can combine the creation of the new profile and the cloning into a single command:

 

wlan aaa profiles new-profile clone old-profile
wlan ssid-profile new-profile clone old-profile
wlan virtual-ap new-profile clone old-profile

yep, valid short cut, just dont forget to go back into wlan virtual-ap and fixup the aaa and ssid profile :)
