Re: AP SNMP System Location not present in Airwave

I don't know another way of seeing the info from the CLI other than reading the boot info

Re: AP SNMP System Location not present in Airwave

Very good.  That is where it should be.  Airwave reads this information by executing "show ap provisioning ap-name " on the commandline of the controller to obtain that information.  Unless you have Airwave provisioned with the username and the password (and enable password) of the controller, Airwave will not be able to obtain that information.  I don't think you need to have the controller be in manage mode by airwave for airwave to obtain this information.

 

On the controller you can monitor what Airwave is typing by doing this:

config t

audit-trail all

 

Then you can type "show audit-trail 50" to see what Airwave is obtaining from the controller.

Re: AP SNMP System Location not present in Airwave

Ok, I tried this but I don't see anything from Airwave in the audit trail relating to pulling AP details even if I click 'Poll Controller'.

Airwave has the correct login rights as it logs in to backup the flash each night and I can see this in the audit trail

Re: AP SNMP System Location not present in Airwave

Okay.  It seems that the APs environment variables are only polled when an AP transitions from down to up.  If you have an access point that you can keep disconnected for more than 5 minutes (the polling period) and then bring it up, we can see from the audit trail if Airwave attempts to retrieve the provisioning parameters of that AP (which is where the syslocation of the AP is stored) when it is detected as transitioning from down to up.

Re: AP SNMP System Location not present in Airwave

I have tried this now but no luck unfortunately. I do not see anything regarding the provisioning parameters in the audit trail from Airwave and the location details are not picked up. Airwave does see the uptime of the AP. The only detail I see from Airwave on the master or local controllers is:

If you haven't already, please open a TAC case.

Re: AP SNMP System Location not present in Airwave

I spoke to TAC and they have confimed that AP SNMP location is no longer available in the current Airwave version. They suggested that I raise this as a feature request for future versions.
