Prerequisites for Configuring LED States for Access Points

  • At least one lightweight access points must be associated to the controller.

Restrictions for Configuring LED States for Access Points

  • The LED state configuration at the global level takes precedence over the AP level.

Information About Configuring LED States for Access Points

In a wireless LAN network where there are a large number of access points, it is difficult to locate a specific access point associated with the controller. You can configure the controller to set the LED state of an access point so that it blinks and the access point can be located. This configuration can be done in the wireless network on a global as well as per-AP level.

How to Configure LED State of an Access Point in a Network Globally

Configuring the LED State of an Access Point in a Network Globally (CLI)

SUMMARY STEPS

    1.    enable

    2.    configure terminal

    3.    ap led

    4.    end


DETAILED STEPS
      Command or Action Purpose
    Step 1 enable


    Example:
    Controller# enable
    
     

    Enters privileged EXEC mode.

     
    Step 2 configure terminal


    Example:
    Controller# configure terminal
     

    Enters global configuration mode.

     
    Step 3 ap led


    Example:
    Controller# ap led
     

    Sets the LED state of all access points associated to a controller.

     
    Step 4 end


    Example:
    Controller(config)# end
     

    Returns to privileged EXEC mode. Alternatively, you can also press Ctrl-Z to exit global configuration mode.

     

    Configuring LED State of Access Points in a Network Globally (GUI)


      Step 1   Choose Configuration > Wireless > Access Points > Global Configuration.

      The Global Configuration page appears.

      Step 2   In the General segment, select or unselect the LED State check box.
      Step 3   Click Apply.
      Step 4   Click Save Configuration.

      Note


      The procedure to perform this task using the controller GUI is not currently available.


      SUMMARY STEPS

        1.    enable

        2.    ap name ap-name led

        3.    show ap name Cisco_AP config general |include led


      DETAILED STEPS
          Command or Action Purpose
        Step 1 enable


        Example:
        Controller# enable
        
         

        Enters privileged EXEC mode.

         
        Step 2 ap name ap-name led


        Example:
        Controller# ap name AP01 led
         

        Enables LED state on the Cisco AP.

         
        Step 3 show ap name Cisco_AP config general |include led


        Example:
        Controller# show ap name AP01 config general
         | include led
         

        Displays the LED state for a specific access point.

         

        Configuration Examples for Configuring LED States for Access Points

        Displaying an Access Point Summary: Example

        This example shows how to display a summary of all the access points that are associated with the controller:

        Controller# show ap summary
        
        AP Name AP Model Ethernet MAC   Radio MAC      Status
        ------- -------- -------------- -------------- ----------
        AP01    1240AG   0000.2000.03f0 0000.2000.0030 Registered
        AP02    1142N    6400.f1c5.e04a 1caa.0723.1ca0 Registered
