Here's what I'm trying to do:
Add a mac address of an ap before it connects to the network so that I can, when it does connect....
change the apname and apgroup with the ap-rename and ap-regroup commands, which I can enter at any time AFTER the AP is found in the database.
Will this work? Is there some way to add an AP mac address BEFORE it connects? (btw, these are campus aps)

AFAIK, this does not set the ap-name or the ap-group of unconnected access points, but I could be mistaken. Do you have any information that it does?

I know this is an old question.
Did anyone find a solution for this. whitelist-db cpsec add doesn't work. ap-rename won't wok if the MAC is not burned-in in the controller.

I wanted to add an updated on this.
With control plane security enabled, you can pre-provision APs with the whitelist-db cpsec add mac-address command. I tested it and the APs came up with the name and group I had defined.
If you decide to disable control plane security, the APs will reboot, and after reboot they will retain the name but not the group, they will come up under the default group.
I still haven't found a way to load new APs to a different group.
Hope this helps.
