Can a Access Point 505, 3965 work without a XCC Controller?

  • 1.  Can a Access Point 505, 3965 work without a XCC Controller?

    Posted 01-20-2022 10:25
    Hi i am Paul, i am new here and also in Extreme WLAN. I have a lot of experience in WLAN from other vendors, but not from Extreme.
    I does my first installation from a XCC E2120 and AP505 and there rising some questions.
    For the E2120 and the AP505 i have to use the "Identifiy" mode, or?
    Identify means, the AP is controlled from the Controller, right? Is it also named as "Centralitzed"?
    I have a HA E2120 setup, so if one E2120 Controller failed the AP switchover to the secondary Controller. If also the second Controller failed the APs failed also, or?
    Is there a way that the APs can work further without the XCC E2120?

    I also need a smart way to switch the old 3965 APs in Wing mode controlled (or managed, i don´t know) from a Controller to the new E2120, what are the possibles i can use?

    Thanks for your help.

    Ciao Paul

    Hi Paul,

    Here for your first question: https://extremeportal.force.com/ExtrArticleDetail?an=000081742&q=persistent%20session

    For the second question, you can:
    • SSH the AP and type on the cli:
      • cset authip 1 <public IP address of your Wireless Controller)
      • capply
      • csave
    • On the Controller go to the AP context and force the new controllers:
      • ap
        • 16XXY-1XXX900000
          • aclist 11.22.33.44
          • aclist 11.22.33.55
          • apply
          • exit
    • You can also perform this via the GUI of the controller in the settings of an AP
    They'll appear in the devices list.

    Regards
