  • 1.  Export Visual RF maps WITH APs displayed?

    Posted Dec 23, 2016 10:09 AM

    Hello,

     

    Browsing the forum... don't see a way to do this: 

    Can Airwave output PDF or even JPG/PNG of floorplans that include access points?

     

    Like so:

    capture.701.jpg

     

    Currently I'm using screenshots, but I'd like to get be able to get something with higher resolution/quality, if possible.

    You can try the below,

     

    • Go to Visualrf 
    • Click on the list view for the maps
    • You would see download map option towards right

     

    Visual.PNG

     

    Regards,

    Vishnu

    Sorry Vishnu, I'm asking for a map WITH APs displayed. Almost as if one were to create a PDF/PNG/ some file type of what is seen in Visual RF (without having to log in, click to the campus, building, floor).

    I have been doing screenshots, but I assumed there must be a better approach?

    Try this:

     

    For an individual floor:

    From the view that shows the building as a stack of floors (drill down into campus, then drill down into the building)

    Right click on a floor -> bill of materials, uncheck all options -> ok

    The output should be a word doc with the raw floor showing AP placement.

     

    You can also do this from the campus view to get an entire building, or even from the network view to get the entire campus.

    Rob,

    Thanks for the suggestion... unfortunately, I don't get any graphic, just a table listing AP info.

     

    Like so:

    The word doc export should have a floor plan prior to the AP inventory table.

     

    Mine returns:

    If you're still not seing the floor plan like so, then please open a support case and a support engineer can help debug.

    "Create case" option seems to be futzed:

    Thanks for the heads up.  We recently migrated into the HPE tracking system, so things may have broken during the move.  Will get the admins to take a look into it.

    OK, I just tried again (to create a case)... no go. Same bug, webform looks wacky.

     

    Could I get someone to create a case for me, in the meantime?

    I'd really like to print out my building maps (without doing screenshots)

    @the.sleeper: I've pinged support to open a support case for you.

    Rob/everyone,

     

    OK, I finally got my issue cleared up (needed to delete a VRF cache)

     

    Here's a sample map of what I get when I do the BOM:

    Screen Shot 2017-04-07 at 9.15.52 AM.png

     

    I didn't realize at first that the APs were included--that's how small they are.

     

    But if you zoom in, they are there:

    BOMfloor.jpg

     

    So, its close, but is there any way to increase the size of the AP icon?

    (I tried tweaking the size in VisualRF, but that didn't seem to have an effect.)

    Currently we do not have option in Airwave to increase the AP size in BOM report, I would recommand to file feature request.

     

    Regards,

    Pavan

    Thanks Pavan, could you point me to where to do that? 

     

    (btw, I'm still not able to create cases from threads)
