Migrating to Radius authentication


#1

Does anyone know if there is a way to migrate existing A5c’s over to using radius authentication without visiting every client site (all using C5/C5c’s), resetting to defaults and using auto provisioning?

You don’t have to do any of that. You will need to log into your clients, set the authentication mode to Enterprise under the Link tab. Type in the appropriate Username and Password for authentication and hit Save.

Please keep in mind that this will bring the clients down until you do the swap on the AP. If it were me doing it, I would bring all of the clients up, make the changes but not save until all of the clients had been changed. Run through each browser tab, hit Save, and then hit save on the AP. This will minimize downtime on your clients.

Oh thats excellent. I was hoping for an answer like that.

Thanks.
