when is it necessary to reprovision an AP/'wr mem' on the controller

Apologies if this is asked elsewhere, but are there some settings which, if changed, require the desired AP(s) to be reprovisioned for the changes to take effect?

 

For example in this case we are altering an arm-profile to disable 80MHz support. Will this take effect instantly?

 

Also I have noticed that on occasion changes I make to a mesh setup only take effect after a 'wr mem' on the master, is that right? Is there a guide as to which settings this is true for?

 

Thank you

No settings change should require you to reprovision an AP. Settings take effect as soon as write mem is applied and the local controller receives the config.

Note that some radio settings cause the AP to toggle the radios.

Thank you - so to be clear, do all changes require 'wr mem' before they will take effect?

In a single controller environment, no.

In a master-local controller environment, yes. Nothing gets pushed down to the local controller until a write mem is issue on the master. If you have APs terminating on your master, it will take effect for those APs before the write mem.
