    You cannot rename an ap group.  You can clone it, however.

     

    config t

    ap-group <new name>

    clone <old name>

    Thanks for the quick responses guys!

     

    AP-Renaming - X

     

    Cloning....

     

    How do you clone an AP Group via CLI on the MM at the hierarchial scale of lets say

    /md

    /md/Super-Corp (AP Group resides here)

     

    If I go to the MCs themselves I can see the ap-groups

     

    logon switch x

    show ap-group

    cd /md/Super-Corp

    config t

    ap-group <new group>

    clone <existing group>

    write mem - pushes config to mds

    Or if you are askign to clone it from  /md/Super-Corp to /md; that is not possible.

    Thanks that did the trick! 

     

    I was thrown off by the fact I cant see the running config of the specific group even if you change the directory to the group

     

    cd /md/Super-Corp

    show ap-group - not allowed command.

    show run - shows same running config as MM

    show run | inc ap-group 

    default ap groups shown.

    Hi

     

    You should use the command:

     

    show configuration effective

     

    that will show the configuration from that level

    "Submit As" which I think should be a clone, does nto seem to be working for me.

    Through CLI however the clone options still works flawless (ie. ap-group <new-group> clone <old-group>) so that is what I've been using.

     

    Renaming pretty much anything is not possible with Aruba controllers. AP-group cannot be renamed.

     

    Remember that if you're using cloning to try and rename an ap-group, this will not change for your AP's so you will have to move them into the new group which requires the AP to reboot.
