Aruba AOS8 - AP system location

  • 1.  Aruba AOS8 - AP system location

    Hello,

    I can't find an option, where to setup AP SNMP system location in AOS 8. I have 7220 "standalone".

     

    I read a user guide 8.4.0.0 in section Configuring an AP using the WebUI and it says in point 9:

     

    9. (Optional) Define the AP name or SNMP location. The AP list section displays current information for an AP, and allows you to define additional parameters for your AP, such as AP Name, SNMP System Location.

     

    BUT I don't know, where to fill in. In provision setup (see attached file) i don't see an option. 

     

    Or am I on wrong page?

     

    Thanks for reply. 

    TK

    You are not wrong.  It is no longer there.  I will alert the Technical Publications department to remove it.

    Thanks for reply cjoseph:

    so AP SNMP system location is no longer available in AOS8? 

     

    Soooo instead of contacting Technical Publications department. Can you contact programmers, that they give back that option? :-D

    :)

     

    If I had to guess, I think it is gone forever.  Quite a few people were confused by it in the past and few people actually used it.  The name of the AP probably offers the best opportunity to provide the location, and it appears in the list of APs for easy viewing.  The AP System Location only appeared on the provisioning page and the provisioning page was busy enough....

    So, I figured out that I can config syslocation via CLI:

     

    configure terminal
    clear provisioning-ap-list
    provision-ap
    read-bootinfo ap-name <NAME>
    show provisioning-ap-list
    copy-provisioning-params ap-name <NAME>
    show provisioning-params
    syslocation "STRING"
    reprovision ap-name <NAME>

    You certainly can, but how do you retrieve them in a way that is convenient without Airwave?

    We retrieve through zabbix. Then we have our application that display the AP on the map with that information:

    In syslocation we have something like this>

    XX.4213475N, XX.8992411E; strop vnitrni prostor; Lodenice; Ptacka parc.XXX; XXX 01; MB

     

    GPS; AP location; building name; address; ZIP code; city

     

    It work quiet well.

    That sounds like you have a workable solution.

    As of ArubaOS 8.5.0.3, provisioning an AP's SNMP system location has returned to the GUI:
