Adding RUs

Adding RUs

Context

You can add RUs in any of the following modes:

  • Importing RUs offline: The RUs' MAC addresses and serial numbers (SNs) are configured on a central AP before RUs go online. The central AP starts to set up connections with the RUs if the MAC addresses or SNs of the RUs match the configured ones.

  • Configuring the central AP to automatically discover an RU: The RU authentication mode is set to no authentication; alternatively, the RU authentication mode is set to MAC or SN authentication and the RU whitelist is configured on the central AP. When an RU in the whitelist connects to the central AP, the central AP discovers the RU, and the RU goes online.

  • Manually confirming RUs added to the list of unauthorized RUs: The RU authentication mode is set to MAC or SN authentication, and the RU whitelist is configured on the central AP. When an RU out of the whitelist connects to the central AP, the central AP adds the RU to the list of unauthorized RUs. After the RU identity is confirmed, the RU can go online.

When you add an RU in any of the preceding modes, the RU cannot connect to the central AP if the MAC address of the RU is in the RU blacklist.

After you add an RU to a central AP offline and configure RU parameters, for example, AP group which the RU joins by default, the RU can go online and use the configured data to work. When the central AP is configured to automatically discover RUs, an RU uses the default parameters to work after going online.

Adding an RU offline is recommended when the MAC address or SN of the RU is already learned.

The AP blacklist and whitelist can be configured at the same time. However, the MAC address of an RU cannot be added to the AP blacklist and whitelist at the same time.

If AP whitelist and blacklist are all configured, check whether an RU is on the blacklist first.

Procedure

  • Add an RU offline.
    1. Run the system-view command to enter the system view.
    2. Run the wlan command to enter the WLAN view.
    3. (Optional) Run the ap blacklist mac ap-mac1 [ to ap-mac2 ] command to add the RU to an RU blacklist.

      By default, no RU is in an AP blacklist.

    4. Run the ap auth-mode { mac-auth | sn-auth } command to set the RU authentication mode to MAC address authentication or SN authentication.

      The default AP authentication mode is MAC address authentication.

    5. Run the ap-id ap-id [ type-id type-id | ap-type ap-type ] [ ap-mac ap-mac ] [ ap-sn ap-sn ] or ap-mac ap-mac [ type-id type-id | ap-type ap-type ] [ ap-id ap-id ] [ ap-sn ap-sn ] command to import the RU offline and enter the AP view.
    6. Run the ap-name ap-name command to configure the RU name.

      By default, no AP name is configured for an RU.

    7. Run the ap-group group-name command to add the RU to an AP group.

      By default, no AP group is configured.

  • Configure the central AP to automatically discover an RU.

    NOTE:

    If no AP name or AP group is configured for an automatically discovered RU on the central AP, the configuration file of the AP name or AP group will not be generated in the AP view.

    If an RU is deleted from the central AP, the configuration in the AP view will be automatically deleted.

    • Set the RU authentication mode to no authentication.

      1. Run the system-view command to enter the system view.
      2. Run the wlan command to enter the WLAN view.
      3. (Optional) Run the ap blacklist mac ap-mac1 [ to ap-mac2 ] command to add the RU to an RU blacklist.

        By default, no RU is in an AP blacklist.

      4. Run the ap auth-mode no-auth command to set the RU authentication mode to no authentication.

        The default AP authentication mode is MAC address authentication.

        NOTE:

        The non-authentication mode brings security risks. You are advised to set the authentication mode to MAC address authentication or SN authentication, which is more secure.

    • Set the RU authentication mode to MAC address or SN authentication.

      1. Run the system-view command to enter the system view.
      2. Run the wlan command to enter the WLAN view.
      3. (Optional) Run the ap blacklist mac ap-mac1 [ to ap-mac2 ] command to add the RU to an RU blacklist.

        By default, no RU is in an AP blacklist.

      4. Run the ap auth-mode { mac-auth | sn-auth } command to set the RU authentication mode to MAC address authentication or SN authentication.

        The default AP authentication mode is MAC address authentication.

      5. Configure the RU whitelist.
        • Run the ap whitelist mac ap-mac1 [ to ap-mac2 ] command to add the RU with the specified MAC address to the whitelist if the RU authentication mode is set to MAC address authentication.

          By default, no MAC address is added to the RU whitelist.

        • Run the ap whitelist sn ap-sn1 [ to ap-sn2 ] command to add the RU with the specified SN to the whitelist if the RU authentication mode is set to SN authentication.

          By default, no SN is added to the RU whitelist.

  • Manually confirm the RU added to the list of unauthorized RUs.
    1. Run the system-view command to enter the system view.
    2. Run the wlan command to enter the WLAN view.
    3. (Optional) Run the ap blacklist mac ap-mac1 [ to ap-mac2 ] command to add the RU to an RU blacklist.

      By default, no RU is in an AP blacklist.

    4. Run the ap auth-mode { mac-auth | sn-auth } command to set the RU authentication mode to MAC address authentication or SN authentication.

      The default AP authentication mode is MAC address authentication.

    5. Run the display ap unauthorized record command to check information about unauthorized RUs.
    6. Run the ap-confirm { all | mac ap-mac | sn ap-sn } command to confirm the unauthorized RUs. After confirmation, the RUs work in normal state.

Checking the Configuration

  • Run the display ap global configuration command to check the RU authentication mode.
  • Run the display ap blacklist command to check the RU blacklist.
  • Run the display ap whitelist { mac | sn } command to check the RU whitelist.
