  • 1.  Mixed AP Models in same RF-Domain

    Posted 20 days ago
    All:
    I have an existing Mint 2 RF-Domain managed by Central NX controller.
    Site RF-Domain manager is AP7522. I wish to add a AP410 or AP310 to the site.
    Can the 1 RF-Domain handle both AP models in the same native management Vlan.

    Any confirmation or direction is much appreciated.

    Afternoon Larry,

    As long as all the APs within that RFD are running the same version of code you may have multiple APs co-exist.
    Which ever AP is the bigger tier/hardware device it will take over as the RFDM.

    Daren, thank you for the clarification. 
    With respect to the multiple AP in a Common RF-Domain.
    Were an Auto-provisioning is in place will the policy refer to ANY in the AP model to meet the mixed AP requirement.
    Thank you

    Larry,
    First, having multiple AP model types in the same RFDomain is completely normal in a distributed (centralized controller) deployment like yours and is something that is happening at probably the majority of deployments.

    In this scenario, the auto-provisioning policy could be setup one of two ways:
    1) Create a separate auto-provisioning rule for each AP model type and then assigns an exisitng model-specific AP profile to each rule.
    2) Create a single auto-provisioning rule that accepts "any" AP model type and then assigns all of the APs an existing single AP profile  that uses the 'anyap' model type.

    For #1, you would need to have already created an AP profile for each of your AP model types so that you could specify them in the auto-provisioning rule.
    For #2, you would need to have already created an "anyap" AP profile that you could specify to use in the auto-provisioning rule. 
    #adopt anyap precedence 10 profile anyAPprofile any
