The wireless AP provisioning in APIC-EM is a terrific capability missing one piece and that is to be able to push the image. Is that capability on the road map and if so is there an estimated time frame.
Referring to below document :
Unsupported for AP:
- Device Certificate
A few links that may prove useful.
Tried to actually upgrade a 3800AP (which the doc I read said was not supported but 1.3 has it in the platform drop down) and if I built the project via the GUI there was no option to add an image to the device record
For AP, the config file (ap.json) contains the IP address of the WLAN controller. The WLAN controller is responsible for upgrading software on the AP, not APIC-EM.
The other attributes are
- wlc (primary, secondary, tertiary)
- mode (local/flex)
- and flex connect group
The use case we have is that we want to stage APs that are going to remote offices and we don't want the APs to pull the images over the (some times slow speed) WAN. It can take a while plus we don't want to burn the bandwidth. So we want to put AP Name, Controller Name and IP, and Image on the AP before we ship them out. We do this today via a small WLC and its a bit of a pain when we have hundreds to provision since its a small WLC with a few ports and even if we add ports its not licenses for too many APs.
