Set Wireless Controller-Role with Policy-Manager


I want to set a Role on a Wireless Controller (C4110-2, 09.21.07.0007) with Policy-Manager (6.3.0.182). I was able to do it, but the role was created with "Bridge at AC" and I need "Bridge at AP". How can I change this?

I don't believe you can change the topology this way once you build it. Create a new Topology, this time, bridged at AP and then go to your Role and point the role to the new Topology.

Hi,

you can change the topology once created (until it is used).

So you can create the topology through policy manager -> enforce -> change the topology from B@EWC to B@AP in the EWC GUI/CLI. Than you can continue to use policy manager. This will work until you modify the topology in Policy Manager = will survive next enforce.

Hello,

thanks for the hints. My problem is, that I dont know how to change the topology in Policy Manager or Netsight. I cant change the topology in the EWC GUI/CLI as it is grayed out (after enforce).

What Pala is saying, is to change the topology used on the VNS and ROLE. Pick something else being used on your controller. Then you can change the Topology to what you need (B@EWC <> B@AC)

Then change the settings back on the VNS and ROLE

Otherwise, delete the whole VNS and Topology and create it as a B@AC Topology

Joseph,

sorry, I dont understand you. My goal is to do the configuration with Netsight, not with EWC GUI/CLI.

You'd choose the right topology in PM - here a screenshot of my setup....

You are not able to create/add a new topology (=VLAN) in Policy Manager.

You need to create the new topology in the WLAN Controller GUI.

After you've done that you'd configure the new role with the topology/VLAN that you've created.
Hello,

I found a workaround with only one configuration on EWC:

-create VLAN in Policy-Manager with option "Always write VLAN to device(s)"

-Enforce

-change Topology with Wireless Controller-GUI to B@AP

-create Role in Policy-Manager

-Enforce

Thanks for all hints
