Mobility Commands

Mobility Commands

mobility anchor

To configure mobility sticky anchoring, use the mobility anchor sticky command. To disable the sticky anchoring, use the no form of the command.

To configure guest anchoring, use the mobility anchor ip-address command.

To delete the guest anchor, use the no form of the command.

To configure the device as an auto-anchor, use the mobility anchor command.

mobility anchor { ip-address | sticky }

no mobility anchor { ip-address | sticky }

Syntax Description

sticky
The client is anchored to the first switch that it associates.
Note    This command is by default enabled and ensures low roaming latency. This ensures that the point of presence for the client does not change when the client joins the mobility domain and roams within the domain.
ip-address

Configures the IP address for the guest anchor controller to this WLAN.

Command Default

Sticky configuration is enabled by default.

Command Modes

WLAN Configuration

Cisco IOS XE 3.2SE

This command was introduced.

Cisco IOS XE 3.3SE

The auto-anchor configuration required the device IP address to be entered prior to the Cisco IOS XE 3.3SE release; with this release, if no IP address is given, the device itself becomes an anchor; you do not have to explicitly specify the IP address.

Usage Guidelines

  • The wlan_id or guest_lan_id must exist and be disabled.
  • Auto-anchor mobility is enabled for the WLAN or wired guest LAN when you configure the first mobility anchor.
  • Deleting the last anchor disables the auto-anchor mobility feature and resumes normal mobility for new associations.
  • Mobility uses the following ports, that are allowed through the firewall:
    • 16666
    • 16667
    • 16668

Examples

This example shows how to enable the sticky mobility anchor:
Controller(config-wlan)# mobility anchor sticky
 
This example shows how to configure guest anchoring:
Controller(config-wlan)# mobility anchor 209.165.200.224
This example shows how to configure the device as an auto-anchor:
Controller(config-wlan)# mobility anchor

wireless mobility

To configure the intercontroller mobility manager, use the wireless mobility command.

wireless mobility { dscp value }

Syntax Description

dscp value

Configures the Mobility intercontroller DSCP value.

Command Default

The default DSCP value is 48.

Command Modes

Global Configuration

Command History

Release Modification

This command was introduced.

Examples

This example shoes how to configure mobility intercontroller DSCP with an value of 20:

Controller(config)# wireless mobility dscp 20

wireless mobility group keepalive

To configure the mobility group parameter and keep alive its ping parameters, use the wireless mobility group keepalive command. To remove a mobility group parameter, use the no form of the command.

wireless mobility group keepalive { count number | interval interval }

no wireless mobility group keepalive { count numbe r | interval interval }

Syntax Description

count number

Number of times that a ping request is sent to a mobility group member before the member is considered unreachable. The range is from 3 to 20. The default is 3.

interval interval

Interval of time between each ping request sent to a mobility group member. The range is from 1 to 30 seconds. The default value is 10 seconds.

Command Default

3 seconds for count and 10 seconds for interval.

Command Modes

Global Configuration.

Command History

Release Modification

Cisco IOS XE 3.2SE

This command was introduced.

Usage Guidelines

The default values for interval is ten seconds and the default for retries is set to three.

Examples

This example shows how to specify the amount of time between each ping request sent to a mobility group member to 10 seconds:

Controller(config)# wireless mobility group keepalive count 10
                          
                                             

wireless mobility group member ip

To add or delete users from mobility group member list, use the wireless mobility group member ip command. To remove a member from the mobility group, use the no form of the command.

wireless mobility group member ip ip-address [ public-ip public-ip-address ] [ group group-name ]

no wireless mobility group member ip ip-address

Syntax Description

ip-address

The IP address of the member controller.

public-ip public-ip-address
(Optional) Member controller public IP address.
Note    This command is used only when the member is behind a NAT. Only static IP NAT is supported.
group group-name
(Optional) Member controller group name.
Note    This command is used only when the member added in not in the same group as the local mobility controller.

Command Default

None.

Command Modes

Global Configuration.

Command History

Release Modification

Cisco IOS XE 3.2SE

This command was introduced.

Usage Guidelines

The mobility group is used when there is more than one Mobility Controller (MC) in a given deployment. The mobility group can be assigned with a name or it can use the default group name. The mobility group members need to be configured on all the members of the group to roam within the group.

Examples

This example shows how to add a member in a mobility group:

Controller(config)# mobility group member ip 10.104.171.101 group TestDocGroup

                                                
                                                

wireless mobility group name

To configure hte mobility domain name, use the wireless mobility group name command. To remove the mobility domain name, use the no form of the command.


Note


If you are configuring the mobility group in a network where network address translation (NAT) is enabled, enter the IP address that is sent to the controller from the NAT device rather than the controller’s management interface IP address. Otherwise, mobility will fail among controllers in the mobility group.

wireless mobility group name domain-name

no wireless mobility group name

Syntax Description

domain-name

Creates a mobility group by entering this command. The domain name can be up to 31 case-sensitive characters.

Command Default

Default.

wireless mobility oracle ip

To configure mobility oracle settings, use the wireless mobility oracle ip command. To remove the mobility oracle settings, use the no form of the command.

To configure the device itself as a mobility oracle, use the wireless mobility oracle command.

wireless mobility oracle ip mo-ip-address

no wireless mobility oracle ip mo-ip-address

This command was introduced.

Usage Guidelines

  • A peer mobility controller must be configured for mobility to work.
  • The mobility oracle is recommended when more than one mobility controller in a configuration is allowed a fast client join and roaming across the subdomains. The mobility oracle must be enabled on one of the mobility controllers and the remaining mobility controllers in the sub-domain must point to that mobility oracle.

Examples

This example shows how to configure the mobility oracle:

Controller(config)#wireless mobility oracle ip 209.165.200.225

show wireless mobility

To view the wireless mobility summary, use the show wireless mobility command.

show wireless mobility { agent mobility-agent-ip client summary | ap-list ip-address ip-address| controller client summary| dtls connections| oracle summary | statistics summary}
