Confirm AP IP Address, Subnet, and Gateway

    Is there a way to confirm the IP address, Subnet Mask, and Gateway that an AP has? Reason for this is that we had to extend our AP VLAN from a /24 to a /23 to accomodate additional APs and I just wanted to confirm that the subnet mask is now 255.255.254.0.

     

    Thanks.

    You can look at the ap tech-support, OR:

     

    - Enable console access to the AP

    - Telnet into the AP and execute an "ifconfig" after the escape sequence.

    I wasn't onsite physically, but we are enabling BLE Console Access for things like this moving forward. A majority of those APs were AP-125's and too high to remove to console into though. 

     

    I will verify the ap tech-support logs and see which command in there pulls that information.

    For the 125s, you can enable Telnet access and enable console access, and you can just telnet into the APs...

    Good point, for us we can't enable Telnet on our network as per security policy, but that's a good reminder of it's availability. 

     

    As a side note, the command that kicks out the info is:

    show ap debug system-status ap-name <ap-name> | begin ifconfig

    In addition, the "show ap consolidated-provision info" command will show you that information:  https://www.arubanetworks.com/techdocs/ArubaOS_86_Web_Help/Content/arubaos-solutions/1cli-commands/sh-ap-consld-prv.htm?Highlight=consolidated

     

    (host) #show ap consolidated-provision info ap-name xxxxx-ap-135

    ap name: xxxxx-ap-135

    ipv4 address type: dynamic

    ipv4 address: 10.17.160.247

    ipv4 netmask: 255.255.255.0

    ipv4 gateway: 10.17.160.2

    ipv4 lease: 43200

    ipv4 dhcp server: 10.17.160.2

    ipv4 dns server: 10.13.6.110, 0.0.0.0

    ipv6 address: none

    master: 10.17.160.4

    master discover type: Provisioned manually

    previous lms: none

    lms addrs [0]: 10.17.160.4

     

    Also, the "ap consolidated-provision info" command will collect that information for all access points on that controller and put it into a "ap_provision_info.txt" file on the controller for you to review;  https://www.arubanetworks.com/techdocs/ArubaOS_86_Web_Help/Content/arubaos-solutions/1cli-commands/ap-consol-prov.htm?Highlight=consolidated
