Q:

What is the command to check the SSID's being broadcasted on Local from Master controller?



A:
In a Master-Local setup typically we will terminate the Access Points on the Local Controller in which we can verify the SSID's being broadcasted. However while troubleshooting on the Master Controller if we would like to know the SSID's that are broadcasted on the AP's which are terminated to one of the Local Controllers, we can execute the below command on the Master Controller to know the SSID information on the Local Controller.
 
Note: Same command works on Local Controller as well.
