How to configure/modify ESSID name in Instant?


In earlier Instant version, SSID name was same as SSID profile name and it wasn't a configurable variable. Instant version 4.2 allows WLAN administrator to change/modify ESSID name as needed with SSID profile name unchanged. By default ESSID name is set as SSID profile name. 


CLI Configuration:


IAP (config) # wlan ssid-profile test
IAP (SSID Profile "test") # essid test-psk


show network/show clients

IAP# show network
