TitleCLI command for layer 3 adoption of WiNG access points
Remote APs are not adopting to the controller. APs have not been pre-staged and DHCP option 191 is not implemented. 
  • AP76xx series
  • AP75xx series
  • AP65xx series
  • Legacy AP650
  • Legacy AP71xx series
  • WiNG 5.x
  • Layer 3 switch/s
  • SSH (Secure Shell) client or console port access using baud rate (speed) 19200 or 115200
In a routed environment, when DHCP option 191 has not been implemented and the APs have not been pre-staged, they will not know how to look for the adoptive controller. 
Configure the APs and point them to the controller by following these steps:
  • Log into AP via SSH or console port and run the following commands:
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
#controller host <controller-IP-address>        
#com wr
#show adoption status

- <controller-IP-address> Enter IP address of the adoptive controller
  • You can automate the process of checking adoption status by running the following commands:
#watch <time-in-seconds> show adoption status 

#watch 5 show adoption status

- The command "show adoption status" will be automatically executed every 5 seconds
- Use the CTRL-c keys ​to cancel 
Additional notes
  • It is recommended to create a profile for each AP on the controller. Both, primary and standby controllers have to be listed in the profile. 
  • Depending on the size of the deployment, give the APs a little time to adopt.
