Preferred Mesh portal IAP

    Hi,

    Is there a way to force an IAP to only attempt to mesh to a specific IAP in its cluster, instead of any available IAP?

    I've got a deployment where I have a wireless mesh, and the mesh point feeds a switch with two more IAP's in the same cluster. Sometimes the mesh point will mesh with the IAPs on the same switch, instead of  the far portal (i.e. if the far portal goes down). I'd like the mesh point to only connect to the one designated portal.

    you can setup a manual mesh cluster for a specific Mesh portal/point and not use default mesh cluster.
