Usage Guidelines

AP groups are at the top of the configuration hierarchy. An AP group collects virtual AP definitions and configuration profiles, which are applied to APs in the group.

Example

The following command configures a virtual AP profile to the “default” AP group:

(host)[mynode](config) #ap-group test1

(host)[mynode] (AP group "test1") #virtual-ap corpnet

The following command configures a Wi-FiWi-Fi is a technology that allows electronic devices to connect to a WLAN network, mainly using the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radio bands. Wi-Fi can apply to products that use any 802.11 standard. uplink profile to the “default” AP group:

(host)[mynode](config)# ap-group wfu-test

Warning: WiFi uplink profile will not take effect until an AP is reprovisioned

(host)[mynode](AP group "wfu-test")# wifi-uplink-profile test-uplink priority 1
