I need to create a new network twin of the previous, only change the addressing and the names of wlans and policy, the tentation is to backup the confiiguration, modify and restore, but its not simple as the version 6 in the version 8 there is many files to modify.
The network is composed by two mobility conductors and 4 mobility controllers in cluster.
anyone have already tried to do this? it works?
Are you upgrading form v6 to v8? Not sure your questions is clear.
Not, I have a wireless network already working, I ahve to configure another network with the same hardware and the similar coonfiguration, change only the addresses and the name of ssid. imagin two hotels of the same company.the question is can I take the Mobility conductor configuration and mobility controllers configuration from the old network, modify the text files and restore to the new devices? Naturally I put the same firmware version.
How do you have your configuration organized already. For instance folder structure. It is easy to deploy a site by adding a folder to your root config folder. For instance:Managed Devices >> Company name (usually best practice to set global configs here) >> Geographical >> Site >> Device Specific.If you have most of your configuration in the Company Name folder, it will also be configured in the lower folders unless you override the config at the lower level. Adding a site should be as easy as creating another child folder, and adding the devices to be managed in the folder. Make your device specific settings at the level and you should be good to go.
hello,I have to replicate the enteire infrastructure, (2 mobility Conductors and 4 Mobility controllers), evry site is indipendent.example site A have the addresses 10.3.0.0/16 and the hostnames and SSID names start with SITEA (SITEAssid)site B have the addresses 10.4.0.0/16 and the hostnames and SSID names start with SITEB (SITEAssid)I tryed to tke the backup and edit but there is several folders compressed and the restore failed.
I would suggest either restoring the Mobility Conductors on an isolated vmware environment where you can restore using the same address space as production, and then change the IPs of the Conductor and move it to the new subnet. From there delete the controller entries in the config, and add the new devices. You may need to change out the certificates in the environment if they are specific to the older devices.If that is not an option, then I would deploy a new Conductor VM and start moving configuration over bit by bit.
Yes, Normally I use the 2nd, I copy the configuration committed in the "Mynode" and the specific folder below the "managed networks", I edit and paste in the new infrastructure.
