Can you clone an AP group?

Can you rename an AP group?

 

Thanks!

Re: AOS8 Clone or Rename AP GROUP

"Submit As" which I think should be a clone, does nto seem to be working for me.

Through CLI however the clone options still works flawless (ie. ap-group <new-group> clone <old-group>) so that is what I've been using.

 

Renaming pretty much anything is not possible with Aruba controllers. AP-group cannot be renamed.

 

Remember that if you're using cloning to try and rename an ap-group, this will not change for your AP's so you will have to move them into the new group which requires the AP to reboot.

You cannot rename an ap group.  You can clone it, however.

 

config t

ap-group <new name>

clone <old name>

Re: AOS8 Clone or Rename AP GROUP

Thanks for the quick responses guys!

 

AP-Renaming - X

 

Cloning....

 

How do you clone an AP Group via CLI on the MM at the hierarchial scale of lets say

/md

/md/Super-Corp (AP Group resides here)

 

If I go to the MCs themselves I can see the ap-groups

 

logon switch x

show ap-group

cd /md/Super-Corp

config t

ap-group <new group>

clone <existing group>

write mem - pushes config to mds

Or if you are askign to clone it from  /md/Super-Corp to /md; that is not possible.

Re: AOS8 Clone or Rename AP GROUP

Thanks that did the trick! 

 

I was thrown off by the fact I cant see the running config of the specific group even if you change the directory to the group

 

cd /md/Super-Corp

show ap-group - not allowed command.

show run - shows same running config as MM

show run | inc ap-group 

default ap groups shown.

Hi

 

You should use the command:

 

show configuration effective

 

that will show the configuration from that level
