Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

  • The SFTP configuration is used when the automatic upgrade and online upgrade modes are SFTP. In the automatic upgrade or online upgrade, the central AP sends basic SFTP information to the RU, and the RU requests the SFTP server for upgrade based on SFTP information.
  • After running the ap update sftp-server command, you can perform the following operations:
    1. Run the ap update mode command to set the upgrade mode to sftp-mode.
    2. Run the ap update multi-load command to upgrade RUs in batches.


  • It is recommended that you use an external SFTP server to upgrade RUs. If the central AP functions as the SFTP server, a maximum of five RUs can be upgraded simultaneously. If there are n login VTY users, the maximum number of RUs that can be upgraded simultaneously is subtracted by n - 1.

  • RUs do not support the following characters: ". Ensure that the SFTP server user name and unencrypted password configured on the central AP do not contain the preceding characters. Otherwise, SFTP upgrade fails.


# Configure the SFTP server IP address, SFTP server user name and password.
