Adding a Location Appliance to Cisco WCS
To add a location server to Cisco WCS, log into WCS and follow these steps:
Step 1 Verify that you can ping the location server that you want to add from the Cisco WCS server.
Step 2 Choose Mobility > Mobility Services to display the Mobility Services window.
Step 3 From the Select a command drop-down menu (right-hand side), choose Add Location Server and click GO.
Step 4 In the Device Name field, enter a name for the location server.
Step 5 In the IP Address field, enter the location server's IP address.
Step 6 (Optional) In the Contact Name field, enter the name of the location server administrator.
Step 7 In the User Name and Password fields, enter the username and password for the location server.
The default username and password are both admin.
Note If you changed the username and password during the automatic installation script, enter those values here. If you did not change the default passwords, Cisco strongly recommends that you run the automatic installation script and change the username and password.
Step 8 In the Port field, enter the port number used by the location server.
The default port is 8001.
Step 9 Check the Enable check box to enable HTTPS. Uncheck the check box to disable HTTPS.
HTTPS is disabled by default.
Step 10 Click Save.
Cisco WCS searches for the location server and adds it to the Cisco WCS database.
Step 11 Go back to the Mobility Services window and click Refresh (top right). Verify that the location server that you have just added appears in the window.
Note Cisco WCS does not allow you to add a location server that already exists in the WCS database.
Note After adding a new location server, you can synchronize network designs (campus, building, and outdoor maps) and event groups on the local location server with Cisco WCS. You can also choose to synchronize the location server with a specific controller, You can do this synchronization immediately after adding a new system or at a later time. To synchronize the local and Cisco WCS databases, continue to "Viewing Synchronization Information" section on page 3-6.
