AOS8 bulk provision APs for wired 802.1X

    Hello,

     

    AOS 8.3.0.x with MM (some controllers on 8.2.2.x)

     

    We have started a wired 802.1X initiative and I found that I cannot provision more than a single AP at a time if I want to set 802.1X settings. We wish to use EAP-TLS with factory cert. I also looked at the CLI audit-trail after provisioning an AP and found the following commands were pushed:

     

     

    clear provisioning-ap-list
    read-bootinfo ap-name AP-PLEA-6150-FLR2-18
    copy-provisioning-params ap-name AP-PLEA-6150-FLR2-18
    provision-ap 
    provision-ap apdot1x-tls
    provision-ap apdot1x-factory-cert
    reprovision ap-name AP-PLEA-6150-FLR2-18

    However, the "provision-ap apdot1x-tls" command does not exist from the CLI.

     

    Is there a known method to do this bulk re-provisioning so the APs will start sending their cert?

     

    We have ~1600 APs.

    You would use a provisioning profile for that:

    I would set it up using the GUI for simplicity and apply it to a test ap-group to make sure it works the way you need it to:
