Information

 
TitleFactory resetting an access point from CLI will override the current controller setting for antenna model
Symptoms
  • Factory resetting an access point from CLI will override the current controller setting for antenna model
  • Lost antenna settings
Environment
  • AP3825e
  • Any AP's that support external antennas
  • Firmware Any
  • ExtremeWireless
Cause
  • External antenna parameters are considered as static ap properties similar to static ip address and it gets reported back to a controller during discovery.
  • When a cset factory is done it removes the ap’s running configuration and the ap goes into discovery looking for a controller.  The default external antenna setting is "no antenna" so this gets reported back to the controller accepting this ap. 
Resolution
Select the appropriate antenna model again from the controller GUI
