add vlan virtual-AP

Just sprung up a new AP system at my main hospital. 

 

The Guest /21 subnet has filled up. I was already planning to migrate to VLAN pools but I'll need to do this one in advance.

 

From what I read, it looks like changing the vlan assignment on my guest vap will reboot the AP. Can someone confirm? 

 

If this is the case, is there a graceful way to do this without rebooting the AP? I was thinking I can remove the Guest vap from the group -change it to a pool- and then add it back. Although it would be a pain for 30+ groups.

It will not reboot the AP, but it will kick all the users of that SSID.

Re: add vlan virtual-AP

thanks Colin, I was able to confirm this through a test AP.

 

 

one more quesiton, When I assign a vlan pool to the vap, the radios disable. I've been looking through the configuration and can't find anything that would cause that...

Nevermind. Found it.

 

For others:   VLAN assignments are per controller. Had to add to 2 other local controllers in the VLAN pool.

Hey, don't forget you can also check the config for errors using the below command

 

#show profile-errors 

It would tell you if there is a VLAN missing and so on:

 

wlan virtual-ap "Corp-SSID"   VLAN 167 does not exist

ACMA, ACMP, ACSA
