Enable the SNMP mode by clicking on the enabled button. Navigate to the community strings page and add two communities “ro” for read-only and “rw” for read-write
Note: In this example we use V2 communities. You can also use V3 communities.
Hit “Save & Apply to Device”
Click on Add again to add “rw” community.
After hitting “Save & Apply to Device” you should see both V2 communities listed as below:
For DNA-C to talk to C9800, we need to enable NETCONF and enable local authorization profile on C9800. The simplest way to achieve this is to navigate from C9800 GUI>>Administration>> Command Line Interface
This page is just like a CLI (SSH session) from GUI. Copy paste the below commands into the “Configure” mode of Command Line Interface section and execute “Run Command”
aaa authorization exec default local
C9800 is now prepared for cisco DNA-C
From cisco DNA-C GUI:
Log into Cisco DNA-C GUI
On the top right corner of the webpage, click the Tools menu and select “Inventory” tab
Note: You can alternatively discover your C9800 device usning he "Discovery" menu.
On the Inventory page, click “Add” on the top right corner
Enter the C9800 WLC details
Scroll down to edit the CLI/Netconf/GUI settings:
Default NETCONF port on C9800 is port 830.
Click “Add” and the device will get added to the cisco DNA-C inventory. Make sure to validate that the device is in a “Managed” state
C9800 is now added to Cisco DNA-C.
Provisioning C9800 via Cisco DNA-C
From the Cisco DNA-C home page click on the Design tab
A site map and floor plan has already been added to the Network Hierarchy tab.
To add Wireless SSID, click on the “Network Settings” tab and navigate to “Wireless” and then click “Add”
Scroll down to access security settings and configure PSK password.
Clicking the “Next” tab brings you to the “Wireless Profiles” tab where you will configure your wireless profile to be assigned to the specific site.
Clicking the “Finish” button should add both the WLAN and Wireless Policy profiles you just created.
Now that the WLAN and profiles have been designed, we can provision them to the respective WLC’s. For this, click on the “Provision” tab on the top of Cisco DNA-C
On the Provision menu, you can filter for your device name under device inventory “Filter” option.
Select your WLC and hover over “Actions” field and navigate to “Provision”
Add device to your site
In this example AP and WLC are in same location, you can skip past the configuration and advanced configuration step here and deploy from the summary page.
Validate if the provisioning was successful:
Next step is to provision your Access Point using same method as above.
You can now validate the provisioning status from C9800 GUI>>Configurations>>WLAN
You have now successfully provisioned WLC/AP via Cisco DNA-C
