To enable ble-console in campus AP post 8.6 

May 26, 2020 02:43 AM

Requirement:

How to enable BLE-Console for campus AP post 8.6.x.x



Solution:

Prior to 8.6, you can enable ble-console in ap system profile by setting the mode as persistant-console. However post 8.6, this feature has been moved to a separate radio profile called iot-radio profile. You can set the mode of the iot-radio profile to ble and enable ble-console for bluconsole access.



Configuration:
(config) #iot radio-profile Test
(IoT Radio Profile "Test") #radio-mode ble 
(IoT Radio Profile "Test") #ble-console on
(IoT Radio Profile "Test") #exit

 

Map the iot-radio profile Test in the requried ap-group.

(config) #ap-group default 
(AP group "default") #iot radio-profile Test
(AP group "default") #write mem

 



Verification
#show ap-group default 

AP group "default"
