Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

  • If the type of a VAP is set to service-backup ap-offline, STAs can access the network through the backup service VAP after the AP goes offline. For example, on a headquarters-branch network, when APs at branches connect to the AC at the headquarters through a WAN, APs may go offline due to the WAN instability. You can configure a backup service VAP to allow new STAs to access the network if the AP goes offline.

  • If the type of a VAP is set to service-backup auth-server-down, the VAP is automatically enabled to allow network access of associated STAs when the authentication server is not accessible. When the authentication server recovers, this VAP is not automatically disabled. You can manually disable it if needed. If the authentication server is accessible but rejects user access, this VAP is not automatically enabled. You can manually enable it if needed. To enable or disable this VAP, run the vap-service-backup auth-server-down command.


  • After the VAP type is configured in the VAP profile view, the VAPs generated by the VAP profile use the configured VAP type. The new VAP type will overwrite the old one.
